ohhai! i'm creating this thread so i can nominate my lovely abbigale for April COTM.
abbigale is a 2006 world rally blue subaru impreza WRX TR. [phew!]
she was purchased on september 19th, 2006. i was still a senior in high school and she was my first brand new car. i came from the honda world so the wrx was a new animal. my brother had a heavily modded bugeye so i grew to love subarus long before i ever bought one.
over my 4 years of ownership i have experienced many new things such as autocrossing, drag racing [at the track of course] and have made many friends along the way. she is also 100% paid off as of september 2010 [paid in full by yours truely]. a big accomplishment!
here is a time line with some pictures... mod list to follow. all modifications have been done by my father & i in our garage.
here she is in her stock gloriness
first on the appearance list was the eibach prokit lowering springs & 17x7 race gold OZ superleggeras
next came 2004/2005 taillights, a MUST in my opinion.
another must- v-limited replica front lip! you can also see here we painted my TR mirrors WRB.
junk in the trunk
