I received a '95 Impreza LX as a high school graduation gift back in the summer of 2006. It was passed down from my aunt who bought it new in '94/'95.. we picked it up after she moved to SC and didn't need AWD. At that point it was 11ish years old and our family was going to get rid of it, so they let me have it.
After that was totaled by some guy hitting me from behind on the highway (not my fault), I picked up a '98 OBS, which I really modded.. complete suspension, wheels, tires, etc. Autocrossed it. Loved it.
After that rusted out for the most part, I nabbed a 2004 WRX, and here I am at stage 2.
