RS25: Since you have been here, how has the site helped you?
The VERY first day on the site, why in the hell are my parking lights staying on???? Since then, loads of info, from how to's to finding cool oddball parts, even diagnosing help.

RS25: What was your first Subaru?
This is my first Subaru. I came from the Mitsu side of the world before the RS. I had obessed with the Impreza 2.5 RS when it was introduced to me in 98. I wouldn't buy one until 09.

RS25: Tell us about your car. Any plans of modification or upgrades?
My car used to see track duty back when I could afford such a thing. In April its going under the knife again for a widebody. I was shooting for a carbon roof but it just didnt happen.

RS25: Help us get to know you. What is your name and what do you do? Have any hobbies?
My name is Max Withrow, I work for Texas German Autohaus since 09. In the evenings and on weekends I have a powder coat company, Baked Goods Powder Coating. Between these jobs I really have no life. I still do car shows in order to semi promote my business. Hoping to be able to do the powder coating full time by some time next year.

RS25: If you could describe yourself in one word what would it be?
Straightfoward.

RS25: What inspired your photo?
Well, this one I was trying to capture the freshly coated engine parts and the ghost rally livery in one shot. So I guess mainly self promotion.

RS25: Well thank you for your participation in the contest and congratulations on winning. Any other comments you would like to add?
Thanks for having these contest, always fun to compete with the rest of the old school folks. I love knowing there are others out there that really care for their cars and every month it shows in these pictures.
