I had to discipline my self from joining until I got a job, I gave up on waiting till I have a wrx. But I have a job! busser at a local restaurant! Hopefully i get promoted to server. That's where the money is. Anyway, My 18yo sis has worked there for about 2 years, and has about 7,000 bucks saved up. Being 16, I'm hoping to have about the same, or a little more, and then buy an 04 or 05 manual. I'm at 500 right now. I've driven my brothers 02 manual,:drive2: and I fell in love. I NEED a wrx.
