    1st car was a 96 Geo Metro my parents bought for the kids to drive (5 of us)

    • This thing was 3 cylinders of raw boredom.
    • I spent a couple years driving this like a mad man while learning how to drink and drive, smoke and fly, trip and roll

    2nd car was my baby, my 95 Honda Accord

    • I got this jewel in the summer of 02 for $5k
    • I sold this jewel this past fall for $3k
    • I spent 8 years beating this thing up and learning how to work on cars

    My first ride was a 99 Nissan Frontier, sold that to buy a 2005 Nissan Frontier Nismo. I've always liked the WRX so I traded my truck in to get a 2011. The car is a blast to drive but I miss my truck.

    I drove a 2000 Acura Integra LS/GSR swapped. Modded:

    Tanabe Medallion ConceptG Catback exhaust 60mm
    Injen Cold Air Intake
    Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator
    Fidanza 7.5lb Flywheel
    Fidanza Short Throw Shifter
    Exedy Stage 2 Clutch
    17" ADR S07R Rims
    Toyo Proxes4 Tires
    GloShift Oil Pressure Gauge
    GloShift Vacuum/Boost Gauge (was going to go turbo)
    Ceramic 4-2-1 two piece header and downpipe
    New upstream and downstream O2 sensors (Bosch)
    New OEM Timing Belt
    New OEM Water Pump
    New OEM Main seals
    New OEM Cam seals

    NGK Plugs
    Type-R Wing
    Tsunami front lip

    HID Projector headlights (unsure of brand, they were on the car when I bought it)

    Long story short, did a T3/T4 turbo kit on it and the original B18B threw a rod bearing and ate my turbo. Most likely metal shavings through the feed line. Swapped an imported VTEC B18C in and drove for another year. It's now for sale, gonna miss it as it was my first car my senior year of HS in '06. Fun little car, but then I found a WRX!

    Also bought this 08' Wrangler Unlimited X last Spring with the wife. 33" BFG Km/2 Mud Terrains, 17" Black Rocks, 2" Lift, Magnaflow exhaust, K&N CAI, Chipped.

    My 03 WRX is the first car I've ever owned.

    I drove my parents F-350 through senior year of high school and they were awesome enough to let me take their Toyota Highlander for my first couple years of college.

    I've always had a short attention span with cars, but the WRX has just been the perfect all around vehicle so far, and I've had it 4 1/2 years now. The AWD handles the snow better than my jeeps ever did, and of course its much faster and more fun to drive than anything I've owned so far. Even though I have been getting the itch lately for something new, I've only really been considering a new WRX!

    First car was a 1983 Nissan Sentra Hatchback.
    College- 1988 2 Door pathfinder and 1994 Saturn SL2
    First car after College was a 2003 RX-8, Complete with grossly overrated HP figures!
    2006 Volvo S40 Turbo AWD with 6 M/T came a few years later
    2007 Porsche Cayman, owned it for 2 1/2 years until I moved to NJ from GA and found out what winter and crappy roads were.

    The WRX was a car I always liked since college, and after 9 years I figured now is a perfect time to pick one up, been very happy with it so far!
