Advice for my 15 y/o son
My son just turned 15 and we are looking for a project car. He loves the WRX. He's seen plenty of them autox where I race my RX 8.
There is no way I want to turn him loose with a WRX, let alone pay for the car insurance, so this is my thought. Buy a 05-06 impreza and start modifying it, Body kit, wheels, etc. so it looks like a WRX, and in a year or two either drop in a new drive train, or probably move to a WRX.
This way, he has the looks of a WRX with the insurance costs of a impreza.
I know the RX 8 inside and out, but I am clueless, so far, when it comes to a Subaru. Does this sound like a viable alternative? Where can I go for WRX body parts, wheels, etc?. I can check ebay and google vendors, but if anyone has experience with this, your comments are appreciated.
