2 Fast 4 U: GreenLight’s 1:18 “2 Fast 2 Furious” Challenger

Subaru’s Impreza 555 was born to be a rally car, and its hard-nosed capability on the most torturous circuits was proven worldwide.

Okay, here’s the checklist: She’s a hottie. She likes to ride motorcycles. She drives a beat up old Chevy pickup truck. And, as seen in the Twilight series of films, she also has a thing for bloodsuckers. Hey, three out of four ain’t bad. While we can’t attest to character “Bella’s” taste in men, we […]
