Post #39 New car and direction



Old/abandoned:

So this is my first Subaru, I purchased at 2006 WRX wrb in august of 2006, I caught mod bug. After about 14 months of ownership the transmission went up on me. There was an important decision to make here, to get PPGs or start over w/ a GC. After seeing my friend's 98 RS I feel in love with it. So I bit my tongue and sold the WRX, loved that car very much.





Last month I finally picked up a 97 Impreza L with 172 k on the dot. It is a very clean car for that amount of mileage and its age. Its an automatic and has the dreaded Tan interior. The radio was also bad, so that was replaced with a JVC KD-ADV6270 and accompanied by kicker speakers and subwoofer.

This project was abandoned and moved on to swapped RS.

thanks, I actually just went out to home depot and got a carpet. No painting me and my girlfriend were working for 2 hrs fitting it in the back seat area. Need a steam gun or something to make it go by faster. We made progress, It got to dark to take pics but I will snap some tomorrow and post them.

Damn mosquitos I swear... get an electronic repeller.

I think I picked the prime time to leave, right before attacking the carpet!
