Hi! My name is Scott Putnam and welcome to my way of life! I live, eat and breathe Subaru. I have been selling Subarus since 1988 and racing them since the turn of the century. I know Subaru and if you are looking for a vehicle or anything Subaru related I am happy to help.

The tenth Gymkhana film was released a bit over a year ago to great fanfare. Ken Block has been releasing these automotive shenanigans videos since 2008’s iconic Gymkhana Practice was uploaded to YouTube. That original video has over 16 million views and it knocked me square on my ass when I first saw it.

If there’s anything Travis Pastrana is known for, it’s taking shit to the next level. He doesn’t half-ass anything, and has a ton of automotive and motorcycle credits to his name to show for it, as well as a whole bunch of broken bones. He is undeniably the king of stunts, and deserves the Gymkhana mantle for a while. Who better? Nobody, that’s who. Read More..
Turning the key has become an act of faith. As the engine grumbles to life on this fine southwest Colorado morning, the yellow check-engine light comes on, as it has every day for the past four years, and the same questions swirl in my mind. Is this the day that tiny head-gasket leak turns into a gusher? Is this the day the catalytic converter chokes closed for good?

The Impreza is, in large part, responsible for the boom in younger people in the early 2000s getting into JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars. It was the first highly desired JDM car to be sold here and it caused other manufacturers like Mitsubishi to follow suit and start offering similarly equipped vehicles. Since those early days, the Impreza has spawned almost nothing but excellent editions that allow you to enjoy… Read More →
