Soon to be STi swapped!



(Page 20)

Hey guys, My Name is Austin and this is my Subaru Story.

(IF YOU ARE GOING TO LEAVE A RUDE COMMENT OR REMARK ABOUT MY ACCIDENT DONT EVEN BOTHER LEAVING ONE!!! THEY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!!
I started my members journal to show people my build not to have everyone rag on me because of that! As if me hurting 3 people and loosing everything i worked so hard for, wasn't enough?
So if your going to leave an offensive comment, take it somewhere else. Thank you.)

After years of looking, and dreaming i finally found myself a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5 Rs, she was a sedan, BRP color. 5 speed. 147,xxx Miles. I paid 4200$ for her.



On Thanksgiving of 2011, 4 days after buying it, i rolled her 3 times with 2 of my cousins and my little sister in the car.
I was being an complete idiot and driving around way to fast around a very sharp corner, power slid/ lost control and rolled down a small hill on the other side of the road.
Everyone in the car survived, we all walked away with minor cuts and bruises. The Car held up like a TANK!
Here are is a picture.



With only PLPD on it, i got nothing from it, But on the plus side i kept the car!
After a few months of searching i found another one, in Fort Wayne, Id.
Took about 2 months after finding it but i finally got it!
2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5 Rs, sedan, SRP, 5-speed. 141,XXX miles

They day i got her. First fill up, Baschbry came with!

Well the kid who owned this car before me left a mess.
The interior was dirt as all hell!
So yesterday i decided to detail the interior of my Impreza.
Also swap the cloth seats for my leather seats. (Leather was from the BRP, the SRP had cloth)
And get the WRX motor out of the trunk.

WRX engine spun a rod barring, plans for swap are far down the road.
Surprisingly it was not to hard to get out of the trunk xD

Haven't decided yet, but probably not. It's a bit of a 3-hour drive each way for me.

Good to hear that everyone walked away from that accident with minor injuries, pretty lucky there.
Thanks man i agree. My uncle must have been watching over us... He passed about a week before my accident.
I am very lucky, and i can promise you it will not happen again.
One of the hardest lessons i have ever had to learn.
I put blood, sweat, and tears into saving money for that car.

This second time around, im going to learn how to properly drive a 5-speed then i will use it as a DD.
Iv driven her a bit, still getting comfortable.

Please take no offence when I say I'm glad you posted the evidence of your fuck up and admit to the stupidity in putting not only your own life in danger, but the lives of those around you.

Slow the fuck down youngin' and learn to be a better example to your younger sibling.
Find a drag strip or auto cross event to drive like that.

Alright, on with the new car.
