Hey guys...Pat here from the Chi town area.
Looking for an '04-'07 WRX (possibly STI) for a DD.
Currently have an '04 tree fitty Z as my toy car but w/ Chicago weather I'd like something AWD for the cold months. Also have a '69 Mustang and an '05 Taurus (current DD). Looking to dish both those off to fund the WRX.
Not really looking to do any major mods except for some springs, Advan RS's and some decent tires...and maybe a tune.
If you're in the Chi-town area I'm got556 w/ ChicagoZ so hit me up and we can meet up.
Dunno if I can find a used WRX at a dealer to trade in both the other cars I mentioned so WRX DD will be put on hold til I can sell the stang and the taurus.
Here's my Z...b4 the wreck
AME Circlar Spec-R's
Stillen front splitter
Greddy Ti-C single exhaust
Kinetix rear camber arms
Wilwood 13" BBK (not shown)
Titek CF intake duct
And some other mods here and there
After the wreck I'm running I purchased some TE37's and wrapped in Dunlop Z1 Star Specs (tire's not mounted yet...currently worn out RT-615's). Thinking about rocking a Vortech on the stock block this summer as some of you probably know building up a motor and throwing on twins is not cheap w/ the VQ's. Still putting the car back together so no great shots of the car in it's current state.
Anyways...I look fwd to hanging out here and learning about the WRX platform leading up to my purchase. Not sure what color I wanna go w/ yet but I'm probably not gonna be too picky if I can get the right deal. It's gotta be a manual also.
Here's a pic or two of my Z.
(It was snowing when this pic was taken....Chicago Heights area)
And how she sits now....had to rebuild most of my passenger front suspension and driver side rear thanks to ice + curb but she's coming along. Just waiting on some new parts for my Stance CO to rebuild.
