I unfortunately dont have pics of any of my previously owned cars. My first was a 73 VW Bug, Canary yellow, matching steelies, chrome bumpers, running boards, gravel guards, and vent covers, and exhaust. Next was a 2001 Ford Focus, after first deployment dropped a 302 (built to the ends), with 5.0 rear end and tranny in it (fastest car I have ever owned). Sold it, built a boom box on wheels with my 02 Mercury Cougar. Returned it to stock and bought my 07 WRX. While having it have bought my wife an 05 WRX 4Eat. Looking to get rid of one of the WRXs to get a legacy or forester, and also a Harley in the process (which will be my next build).

Wish I could've owned a EVO VII....I love the look of the older EVOs we weren't allowed to have.

Not as nice as some of you guys:
1) 198X (can't remember the last year digit) Oldsmobile Cutlass This car was my boom box. lol
2) 1994 Pontiac Grand Am Also a boom box on wheels
3) 2006 Subaru WRX TR
4) 2006 Subaru WRX STI (my current car)

I wish I would've looked harder before buying my Grand Am. Shortly after buying my Grand Am I found a nice Turbo 2 RX7 that would've came with a spare rotary engine and add on's. It had a full TBE Apexi exhaust that made the car sound like thunder at idle. Man, I regret not getting that car. It needed a paint job as it was rolling around on primer. But, it would've been the coolest import car in high school if I owned it and got it painted. It had all typical show mods: nice rims, exhaust, and a decent radio upgrade. Just the interior would've needed fixed up to make it look really good. The kicker is it would've been roughly the same price as my Grand Am. I saw the car for the next couple of years after. So, I know it ran good and that's what really kills me.

I went from sound mods to performance with Subaru. I really....really wanted a EVO when I bought my TR. But, I couldn't swing the money at the time and I couldn't wait around. My Grand Am needed to go at the time because I didn't want to fix it anymore. So, I got a Subaru and have loved them ever since. But, I wish I had a EVO at times.

Got my license in 2000:

1) 1992 Ford Explorer XLT
High school hand-me-down ride (thanks mom and dad): dark green exterior, tan cloth interior, 6 cyl, automatic, 4x4, green neon/lights everywhere, painted dash pieces green, dark tint, 3 JL Audio 12s, clear turn signals, billet grill, etc.

Took lots of abuse, rust began taking over, sold.

2) 1996 Eclipse GS
College ride: black exterior, grey cloth interior, 4 cyl, non-turbo, 5 speed, red neon/lights everywhere, painted dash pieces/rear tail light center piece/calipers/floor mats black, light tint, 2 JL Audio 12s in a space saver box, 17" Mille Miglia wheels, clear corner lights, AEM short ram intake, Infiniti speakers, Alpine head unit, carbon fiber pedal covers, etc.

Pretty sure it was a flood-salvaged car, many miles, burned lots of oil, sold.

3) 2007 Subaru WRX
Post college/current ride (money pit)

I tend to keep cars for a while.

First car I spent serious money on was my 05 Mustang GT vert (blown, etc). It motivated me to "improve" my WRX.

All told, I started slow...
'89 Ford Escort, (used, ended up burning to the ground)
'96 Mustang GT, (seemed fast, was actually S L O W )
'99 Mustang Cobra, (what a fun car; loved setting off car alarms with it)
'02 WRX Sedan, (Cobb Stage 2, suspension, ASA wheels; loved it, had to give it to my dad)
'05 Mustang GT vert, (Saleen Supershaker, suspension, plus other goodies *still owned)
'08 BMW 335XI, (stock, LOTS of fun and super smooth to drive, especially in Germany, traded it in for
'10 BMW M3 Sedan, (its everything they say it is... nicest driving car I have ever owned *still owned)
'12 Mustang Boss 302, (3 weeks old, just activated the Trackey and it is fantastic to drive *still owned)

Ok, so WRX is gone, but not forgotten and definately loved. Given the space (and wife's permission) I will get another... maybe after I retire in a year and a half.

edit: A pic of the new kid

02 WRX Cobb Stage 2 now SOLD to my father who sold it to my Brother. Have fun Al!

1988 Chrysler Lebaron 4cyl convertible. I was spoiled. Sold it to a teenager years later who wrecked in in a couple weeks. Damn thing was spotless too...
1991 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser (suburban wheelbase station wagon). Infinitely more practical. This car finally died in 2011 btw. Rusted the frame to scrap.
1994 Mazda 626 I bought used. It had a ford probe V6 in it, the car had constant electrical problems not knowing what it was. Ford and Mazda are close, but not close enough for a wiring harness to be happy. Traded it in for the WRX.
2004 Subaru WRX bought new. Sold it to a teenager years later who wrecked in in a couple weeks. Damn thing was spotless too...
2004 Subaru WRX STi bought used. The previous owner was an ass.
2013 Subaru STi: Not delivered yet. OH SNAP!

2015 STi: Still Stock
04 STi, 04 WRX: SOLD

Brandon (Herknav) you are my hero, lol. I got the chance to ride in one of the new 302 Mustangs awhile ago. I instantly fell in love with it. I am and will always be a Mustang fan. Shes a beauty.

And Mosc, nice little drop on upgrading to a newer STI.
