Waaaaaah!

Ever learn what happened to a car you used to own and cringe? Here's my old WRX:
Members' Rides - Page 38 - MNSubaru.com

Apparently it got an E3-16G, BOV, headers, 650cc injectors, and god knows what else slapped on it WITHOUT a tune and now the new owner is looking for an EJ257 and 6-speed swap...

I want to cry. JR didn't deserve it.

04 WRX: SOLD

That sucks man.

I owned a 2002 s-10 extended cab a year ago (what i had before i got the subie). I loved that truck, it couldnt tow or seat people worth a crap, but it was a good get around truck. and it was good to have a break from the fast lane for a while... but after i traded it in, a new salesman totalled it on the lot by backing a jeep grand cherokee into the passenger side 3 times in less than a minute. I was SO suprised he didnt get a tested for drugs or alcohol.... Turns out he was sober, he was just an idiot. and this was after we had just spent 3 grand just to fix paint defects and the a/c compressor and condensor.

I just miss all the times i went to florida in that truck and drove on the beach and camped in the back of it over night with a 12 pack

I'm sorry Mosc. Did you read some of the posts on that site? What a bunch of a$$ clowns! Looks and sounds like the MK4 Golf forums. Like hanging out with 5 year olds.

One kid calls them Sexicles!! bwaahahaha

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.

sold my old K5 blazer to my cousin's husband, and he proceeded to abandon it on my grandparent's 10 acres with a popped tire. Within a month the land was sold to a private party and all hopes of its recovery vanished. I had upgraded every drivetrain component behind the flywheel... !Cry!



...He posted that he wants to change/remove the hood scoop. You know, someone should offer to trade a stock scoop for his!

My very first car was and old 88 Blazer that I had for like 5 days, the tranny was leaking fluid and was slipping really bad. We sold it another guy and his kid for a project car and then after a couple weeks they blew the motor and tranny.

Nah, they knew that it was all effed up though. But I guess they didn't care and just kept driving it until it blew up
