    Sonnet's pretty delicate all fibreglass and by now oooold. I wish him success. I'd love an old Sonnet, but it would be my 'Oonly take out on sundays if the weather's perfect kind of car' Eric's old Sonnet could go pretty fast . No power steering, super stripped down (well, that car wasn't busy in the interior at all) but just an engine, brakes a steering wheel and a fibre glass shell, it could fly pretty fast !

    I am 22. My mom helped me buy my first WRX when I was 17, and I bought my STi on my own a few months ago.

    Congrats on taking care of it on your own! Great feeling isn't it? I bought my first one on my own at 24.

    Before that, parents had helped with other cars myself.

    What is the average age of a new WRX/STI owner

    I'm 27 and I just bought my first subie... I've been a big Ford fan my whole life... But alas my lightning with its poor fuel economy and me having to relocate to the Colorado Springs area I have to trade her in... No regrets so far... Just miss that super charger whine...

    I'm 40, and am coming from 11 years in an Outback. I'm enjoying the upgrade.

    I am 43. Just got rid of my 09 Camry on ebay. 3 more days until I pick up my DGM 13 hatch. Prior to the Camry I had a 2002 WS6 ... Loved it!

    I was 65 when I picked up my 2004 hatchback in 2007. I've got about 105K miles on it now, and it seems to run better than when I first got it. I do a 200 mile round trip drive almost every weekend, with half of it on 2 lane twisty 55 mph (posted limit) in upstate NY. I would've driven it harder when I was in my 20s, but I don't follow slower cars for very long. It's all stock and dealer maintained, so it will be a find for someone if I find the right Turbo-Forester with lots of goodies and and a clutch. I'm thinking of doing a few laps at Watkins Glen next summer, if I still have it.

    Bought mine four months ago, 2013 sedan in white, all stock, no wing. Im 34 as much as I love this car, and love driving it there is no way I could have afforded to own this car when I was say younger than 25. It's not so much the car that would have been tough to afford but the insane insurane.

    And I've had a small inkling of desire to get rid of my STI for a Lightning...ALWAYS loved those trucks. I keep saying once I pay off my car, I'm going to add one to my stable.

    Yeah I wouldn't do the yellow. I'd prefer white, black, or red...like Paul Walker.

    I'm 21, just bought 2013 WRX on my own a month ago. Got SPT exhaust and short throw shifter. Love the car so far. A bit of a change in fuel economy from my 2007 Civic though.
