This is a discussion on Who here has owned their WRX the longest? within the Everyday Impreza Talk forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; I know many of the original members here have changed cars over the years. Just curious how many still around ...

    Who here has owned their WRX the longest?

    I know many of the original members here have changed cars over the years. Just curious how many still around still have their car from late 2001/early 2002? I think Tim (BlazinWRX) still has his yellow car, which predates mine.

    I bought the Trashwagon on February 14, 2002. Who bought earlier and still has it? (WRX only please. I know there are a bunch of pre-bugeyes around still in original hands.)

    There ya go! I knew I couldn't be the earliest buyer still holding on to their car. Need to get Tim's input, as he created this place due to him buying his. Only a few responses so far. There must be other long term owners out there.

    I updated the first post with the dates so far. Thanks for playing,
    Steve

    Oddly enough, I've bought four vehicles on or within a day of Valentine's Day. I almost did this last time but decided to keep the WRX, then decided to get the OBXT anyway, so it was May 13.

    I ain't listin' every car on the site, so I thing six days isn't gonna make it. I'll just do a rolling list of the earliest half dozen or so.

    Joe: Yea, I know original owner. That's the point of the question; who has owed their car the longest.

    Too bad I no longer have my first bugeye..purchased 4/17/2002. That would have been pretty far up the list.
