I registered here in 2005, thinking I would be purchasing a WRX, but I never got around to it.
I've been driving a 2007 Tundra CrewMax for the past 2 years and I absolutely loved that truck, but the reason I bought it was because I was racing motorcycles at the time and I had to haul a trailer around to the tracks. But, right after I got it, I got burnt out on bikes and sold everything. So, the Tundra was used mainly for commuting. It didn't make sense. So, I was able to sell it recently and I was able to convince my fiance that the WRX was a good choice. She was against the idea as she wanted me to look into an Accord or Camry. A nice "family" car, even though we don't have kids...yet. Still, I think the WRX will do find as a family car as many of you use them as such.
I only have 300 miles on the WRX but man, it's so much fun! I am convinced that I'll be a Subie owner for life.
Here's my old baby and here's my new baby. Note that I was hauling the trailer to a dirt track, but I road raced. I rode in the dirt as recreation. I guess racing is recreational too. I certainly wasn't a pro.
