    New From illinois

    hello, Im from Illinois. I currently drive a 2002 Trans am WSQ. My other vehicles I own include a 1995 GMC Sonoma (getting a 6.0 LQ9/4L80e swap), a 2008 Triumph Daytona 675 Special Edition, and a 2012 Ford Focus Hatchback (wifes car). Ive owned and modified a 78 trans am, a 78 lebaron, 68 challenger, 2000 ZX2, 1998 Intrepid, 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 1995 Trans am W/nitrous, 1968 Firebird w/LS1 & 4l80, and a 2002 trans am twin turbo LS7.



    I am ASE Certified and also have certifications in welding, but I currently only use those skills for myself. I work at a screw manufacturer and do everything from making the maintenance on the machines, to tooling, to producing the parts, and then shipping and receiving as well. Ive been there my entire life, so ive been able to learn as ive gone along. I also Used to work for a few custom shops and do it now after work to supplement my income.

    I Will be picking up a 2013 Pearl white WRX tonight.

    Until then, here are my other Vehicles

    So its been a few days, I love this car. My only real quirk is that the center counsel is too far back to actually be useful as an armrest. other than that, the heated seats have been helping on these 20* mornings we've been having in chicago.

    Also, ive noticed that other guys in subaru's tend to wave everytime we pass. kind of like that biker wave when you pass another biker. Is that normal in other places?

    Thanks! I half way regret installing my winter tires on these wheels. I know I'm going to want new wheels when summer comes
