i was up near my new apartment and i was in my GTO and some dude pulled up next to me in a regular lookin wrx. a few years older. well i was wit my boys, so i had to rev my engine alittle. lol. so i waited till he got out of car and asked him wat year it was. he said a "2000" i asked him how much he paid. he said $15000. then i was like thx and was about to pull away but he then added, "but i put $20,000" into it and made it into an STI. so by simple math $15000 + $20000 = $35000. a brand new STI cost $32000. so he would have had an extra $3000 to fix up his "could have been BRAND NEW STI." so any agrees that he is kinda nuts or is there some smarts to wat he did?????
