German Tonka Trucks, Part 1: 1990 Volkswagen Transporter Tristar STI Doublecab.
Ten years ago, Eric set out to one up all his previous projects. So he took a Transporter with the top of the line Tristar trim (never available in the US), and swapped in a stage two Subaru WRX STI engine, and mated that to a RWD Porsche drivetrain. And yes, this is a daily driver that does make it to the track. Make sure to check out Eric's company Terra Wagen, where you can see photos and videos of this collection in action (and buy a set of those dope fender flares).
