    Hello from Seattle!

    I'm not sure how I never made a profile on here but I guess I should introduce myself.

    A little self info: I'm originally from Charlotte NC, joined the CG about 6 years ago and now out here in Seattle. Grew up around cars loving cars and yadda yadda I'm sure you dont really care lol

    Car History:
    Suby obsession started early with my first car being a 1987.5 Subaru XT beat the ever living piss outta that poor ol car but it took and kept going haha.



    Short time later drifting was just getting started and was involved with a group called SEDA (South East Drift Association) Dont know if they are even still around. But anyways picked up a 1990 240sx and did a CA18DET swap.. a couple times due to blown motors and so on. Good car got to expensive dropped the drifting habit.


    From there wanted something a little more reliable and classy. Picked up a 1988 Merc 300ce. And let me tell you it was by far one of the best cars I ever owned. Took it to over 300k miles and it still worked great!

    And now the current project is a 2002 WRX. Its been through quite a lot and still works somehow. The mod list is below.


    I have some better pictures around here somewhere I have put some more parts on but I will upload them later.

    Thanks SVT shes done her fair share of offroading. Honestly I'm amazed everything still works. I'm at about 150k miles with all original internals, clutch, fly, and trans.

    Sasquatch, thanks I appreciate it. I really dont regret any of the cars I've had, and actually I've been playing with the idea of getting another 240sx so I can get back out on the track and not beat up the DD.


    D_Ziggy well when the weather gets a lil better you will have to join us, my roomate and his gf both have bikes so we'll probably start goin on trips
