I'm actually quite happy to find that I'm right in the middle of the age curve here! I'm 33 now. I built a 400HP '71 Camaro with a 383 stroker motor in my 20s - loved it but I was gonna kill myself. I sold it to get a reliable commuter - a 2005 Toyota Matrix XR, and it's on Auto Trader right now as my 2012 DGM Hatch is on order. I wasn't a big fan of the look of the previous gen STIs, but I was ecstatic to see the STI fenders put into the WRX in 2011 and I started my research. Now, it looks like the WRX is gonna have the attitude of the Camaro and the utility/safety/reliability of the Toyota. I'm pretty psyched.
2 kids: 4 & 2, awesome supportive wife, and a new house.
