In September 06 I had to install an exhaust on my friends new WRX. I caught the bug and started searching that night for an impreza. Many different insurance quotes later of $5000 a year, I decided that was a bad idea with my current $3600 on my Rubicon. So I found this site... looked around, and fell in love.
Few days later I found it- forum member selling a 98RS for $7000 with 100k on the clock. Recent new cooling system and head gaskets.
After a week of ownership, I wasnt digging the non tinted windows so I had to get something done about that.
Few subaru meets later, sometime in December, I ended up with an STI exhaust and a borla header.
About a week later, my coilovers came in (that was the first car part purchase I ever made costing more than $800.
Then something bit me and I had to install new JDM tails (bought from my local Annapolis Subaru) in temps somewhere in the teens. I also purchased 02-03 WRX seats and a new Alpine Headunit. Along with a Prodrive Shift Knob and a Kartboy short shifter. Also got a steal of a price on a momo sti wheel that came off a car with 15km.
Sti carpet came in January.
I wanted boost, and the turbo'd rumble. So in February, I made a drive to ohio for my new drivetrain.
V8 JDM STI motor, trans, rear diff, wiring, ecu, and TMIC.
Weather called for partly cloudy and slight chance of drizzle. We were prepared for a long trip with somewhere around 20 cans of energy drinks and more vitamin water. ALong with a GPC, Radar, and Ipod
We left at 2am- hoping to drive te 400 miles with ease, no traffic, and get there way before noon. At around 6am the dreaded happened.
It began snowing...
Some places had up to 4" in snow. This slowed us down to around 45 with 4wd on.
After overcoming the snow, which my rents said the weather channel said was nonexistant... and almost turning back, we got lost. Good old GPS
So we made it to Batavia OH later tha expected, still around noon though... And loaded up. Here's at our first stop for food.
People gave us alot of funny looks
Now being around 3pm, we bang our journey home. Once AGAIN it snowed and snowed worse. Some areas having a complete whiteout. We ended up stopping short, at our property in WV 120 west from our house to call i a night... at 3am.
Once home, this sat in my garage for a month.
I will continue the 2nd part of my story later this evening.
