Subaru Impreza 2000 2.5RS (Project Khushi)

I guess it all started after my GF left me. I had lost hope in everything and didn't want to do anything.. I'm 20 years old and I am also handicap(Have a wrist dormity so my wrists/elbows dont completely straghten and my shoulders can't rotate, so raising my hand is a challenge for me, haha). My friends stuck to me and cheered me up a great much and one of my friends, who just bought a Subaru Impreza 01RS, started telling me of cars, and I felt an excitement. I felt like, something filled me up and wanted me to get going on life again. Soon enough, I bought myself a Subaru Impreza 2000 2.5RS
Some pics when i got her:


After I got the car, I found myself a new hobby, a new thrill for me... Cars, and not just cars in general, but Rally cars. I want to be a future Rally Driver as well as a Teacher. And unlike my past, where I relied on others to push me to go, I am doing this for myself with their support, I am really grateful to them and always will be. (Sidd, JB, Jazz)
Now back to the car:

I knew they had AWD and what not, but never really understood its true power.. so I took her off-roading a couple times and understood it a lot better.
this first pic has my friend driving my car, he taught me quite a bit 8)




Since then, I would play on dirt as often as I could to get a better feeling for driving off-road. But safety first! Planning to get some work done underneath the car (protectors and skid plate) before I go on breaking more stuff
This thing's gonna be a fun rally car

After viewing other journals, I should follow a better format:

Lol yeah, that was my first fear too... thats why i get iffy on letting some of my friends drive... i always keep my hand on the shifter.. but dont move it. I really want a 5-speed but i think if i swap, then i should do it..
