Adam Massey Austin Subaru Design Specialist

Adam Massey

Adam has had a passion for cars for as long as he can remember. Growing up working on, detailing, and talking about cars with his dad grew that into a desire to make a career in the automotive industry. After selling cars at Subaru for a few years, Adam joined the Design Center to help others customize their cars to better enjoy them. Adam believes that a car is an extension of one's personality and should be designed to showcase that. He also believes if you can park your car and walk away without looking back at it then you bought the wrong car!

Yelena Smirnova

Yelena was introduced to the auto business in 2011 when she began in sales. Over time her interest in the vehicles themselves grew and she began to participate in local events geared towards car enthusiasts. Getting a chance to experience Cars and Coffee, MOD and Poker Runs where people did amazing things to their cars was eyeopening to the world of vehicle customization. Looking for a more creative outlet in the auto industry, Yelena jumped at the opportunity to join the Design Center. Being able to take the experience from customizing her own vehicles and helping others do the same has not only been a blast but also rewarding. Having the resources to customize a car can sometimes be challenging or overwhelming, let Yelena help you with all aspects of that!

This STI owner added an STI front lip, a vortex generator, black Rally Armor mudflaps, and window tint for an aggressive, yet subtle look. They also wanted to keep it protected from rock chips, scratches, and stains, so they opted for Clearshield paint protection.
