In America, $42k a year (after taxes) is more than enough to own a new WRX even if you have house payments. Of course I'm assuming you put some money down on the WRX's and get your payments close to $300 a month and your house payments are $1000.
Brand new they aren't cheap. But a 94-95 can be had for about 5-7k. Expect to pay 12-15k for a bug eye. Almost all JDM with a smattering of NZDM floating around.
I'm 42 before tax
Tax rate is 17c per dollar. 3% goes to government retirement scheme. No student loan. My tax rate is high but that's by choice because what that means is every year I get $500 or so back from the government as a refund for paying more tax than I should.
