Strange events while driving this week:
-nail in back tire, (all patched).

- A full sized squirrel came out of my hood scoop while reversing up a hill.

- drove to work on a very foggy morning, not even 10 seconds after heading out, I see a full kit Toyota Supra speeding past me on the opposite lane. Felt straight out of Initial D.

Default New ride (kinda).



I bought a decent condition 2001 Impreza L off an older guy a few miles from my house today. I'm hoping this will be my new daily for a while, as my RS is just beyond saving due to rust, paint, and other issues. going to get the parts swapped to the new car soon and junk the old shell in the following weeks.

Almost 5 years of this beast, and 10k views, much thanks to all readers/ car owners.

Default Spring update:

Been daily driving the Impreza L for the last 6 months now, Most of the parts were transferred over from the RS, minus a few suspensions parts and tail lights.

I plan on keeping this one relatively inexpensive, the car isn't perfect by any mean. So until I can save some serious coin, and afford a swapped GC, or newer WRX, it's going to be pretty quiet on here.

Here's a couple pictures:

Update Dec 2017:

Still daily driving the Impreza L. It's fun, but the car's been a bit of a headache too lol. It's doing better than ever now, and didn't cost me much too much money overall. Here's a list of what's been done to the vehicle this year (Shout out to my mechanic friend's).

RS front brakes installed.
Switched to stock plasti-dipped six spokes again, and studded snow tires.
Got rid of my old leaking exhaust, now it has UEL single port headers, a Tsudo highflow cat, and my STI exhaust.
New Spark plugs
New knock sensor
New Valve cover gaskets

- Plans for next year -
Putting my kyb/ Tanabe suspension back on
Flushing the rear drum brakes
fixing a few lights (third brake light, and a couple bulbs)

Happy Holiday's, and I hope everyone's having fun in this snowy weather - Joe.
