Well, no use just getting your toes wet. Might as well dive in head first...... Well, our '95 Legacy L was showing some age back in March. 260,000 and still ticking like a rolex, but it was time for something new. Just for giggles, we went to the local dealership and test drove a '10 Forester 2.5x. About an hour later, we was cleaning out the '95 Legacy and on your way home with a new Subaru. Lemme tell you we love our Forester. Consistant 29 mpg calculated, 100% rural mountain driving.
Well, this past weekend, I sold my mint condition '87 IROC-Z Camaro. The money was burning a hole in my pocket since it came in contact with my hand. I done a little research and only found 2 WRX's within 200 miles of me (Where are they all?) Ending up driving for 3 hours to check out one in Chapel Hill, NC. I took my pickup and trailer just in case because I wasn't going to try to break the new WRX in on the interstate for 3 hrs.
After a couple hours of paper signing, we loaded the new WRX up and made a bee line home. Boy what a ride. I knew these things were quick, but never imagined they were this fast. I've not even got it up past 3500 rpm's and its plum scary. Do you really need to go above 4k?
Anyways, having 2 new car payments is gonna be rough, but it will sure be worth it. Now I'm torn inbetween driving the WRX daily or storing it in the garage where the IROC was kept for the past 11 yrs. We'll see.
