    Muscle Cars to Imports??

    I still can't believe I did it, but I traded in my 2001 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning and bought a black 2006 WRX STi. And now I'm considering selling my 1985 IROC-Z to help pay for the STi...


    But all it took was one drive. One drive of the STi and I was hooked. It's stupid-fast yet practical; it's unrefined yet very comfortable; it's ricer yet it's not -- the only thing I'd change about the car is the wings...

    That said I'm going to hunt down a link for a new spoiler. Anyone want to buy the stock one from mine!

    Allot of people find the same color Impreza or WRX and just do a straight up trunk swap. This way you get a factory look and get rid of the park bench on the trunk. This is a pretty common thing around here.

    Every WRX/STi has bugs that live in the seats. Once you sit down they nibble at your ass and from then on you've got The Bug.... It's a fast acting toxin and never leaves your system.

    Hahahah, those are bugs I'm happy to leave intact.



    And love the sig.


    Damn. Now I have to find someone who wants to trade me trunks. Is there no aftermarket spoilers that are decent?

    As a previous owner of a 99 Lightning, I can understand and relate. The STi remains one of the best bang for the buck out there today for a practical street driven race car (if there is such a thing).

    Many times I still wish I had mine.........

    I left Mustangs and jumped over to Subaru's.

    It's nice to have a Subaru when it snows.

    Yeah... gonna miss that truck. But I've honestly never been much of a truck guy and it was red. I'm not a red color guy either. I like my OBP STI!

    Thanks for the trunk swap link, mycologist.


    On a side note, I had a couple of my buddies who are Subbie fans, too, come over and take a ride. Needless to say, one of them is about to sell HIS truck for an STI. lol. Damn ass bitin' bugs...
