The story is told pretty well in the video....but for a little more information, almost 2 years ago our rally car (2004 Subaru WRX STi) was wrecked. We pulled it into the garage, and ripped off all the parts. Then we bought a $1500 '96 impreza, drove it into the garage (under it's own power), stripped it down to a bare chassis, built a roll cage, and installed most of the parts from the old car (and some new ones).

The whole time, we had a camera up on the shelf in the garage taking a picture every minute or so. Well, it was finally compiled into a time lapse video. Unfortunately, once the roll cage was built and the chassis went off for powdercoat, we didn't keep up with the time lapse, so it turns into a slideshow of assembly photos, but still pretty sweet.

(Be sure to click through to Youtube, this video is available in full 1080 HD)

If you're looking for more, photo gallery of the whole build:
