Default Since I dont know you - Who are you and what do you do for work / school

Hey guys I figured this might be a way to potentially help people in the future and utilize more of everyone resources. Plus I don't know any of the new people.

So what do you do for work or school? What's your major or profession. How did you end up where you are? What made you get a Subaru?

Ok, I will start to make it easy and Painless.

Me: I'm Nick.

Work: I work at a Piston Company that makes parts. I Sell stuff there and help people with design and any technical aspects of their engine development or design. If you ever need engine advice or confirmation don't hesitate to ask.

Before this I had a shop doing race cars and Subaru Perform for 2 years. Before that I worked at a company designing and doing resistance testing on medical connectors for pace makers. Prior to that I worked at a Fabrication shop doing chassis and custom suspension work.

School: I started College my Jr year in High School. Majored in Mech Eng, and Biz Admin. (Saddleback College / Long Beach State)

Subaru: In 2001 I saw a Yellow WRX beat a Mustang at the Street Races, and I was Sold. 1 Month Later I bought the car. I have been hooked ever since.

Previous Cars:

# 1 - 1989 Toyota Corolla - Stock
# 2 - 1990 Acura Integra - Pyr Cams - Bolts ons - All that crap
# 3 - 1988 Crx HF - ZC Swap - Nitrous - All the bolt on junk
# 4 - 1993 Civic CX - Old Drag Car Project -
# 5 - 1999 Toyota Tacoma - Bagged on some wheels
# 6 - 1994 Honda Accord - Stock
# 7 - 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX - Everything ( Still Have It )
# 8 - 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution - Cams and all the bolt ons - 100 shot of nitrous ( Still Have it )
# 9 - 1998 Honda Civic LX - Stock ( Still have it )
#10 - 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Mega Cab - 4 Inch Exhaust, No Cats, Intake, Boost Fooler ( Still have it )



See that was easy.

Me: Young

Work: I tutor high school and college students in math and sciences.

School: Pomona College in Claremont with a BS in Physics with background in Chem, Bio, and Engineering (mainly Electrical).

Subaru: I fell in love with the peanut eye, but didn't purchase one until the 08 came out because I was waiting for a hatch back. I know most of you have seen my car

I had issues with some of the sponsors, and got tired of being jerked around, so sold the car only after 6 months and 9k miles. Enjoyed it greatly, but moved on because I couldn't stand myself thinking that I needed to make the car faster every time I looked at it.

I have been to your office before. My boss is neighbors with someone you work with. I can't remember who but he gave us a tour of the entire shop and I saw a picture of your car on the wall. I mentioned that I had met the owner of the car before (One of Tien's BBQs years ago) and he said that you worked there. This was probably about a year ago.

FWIW, I work in the Surf Industry in Huntington Beach. I design (CAD), create prototypes and build molds and I get to play IT Admin. I originally was going to school for Computer Science but I started working for an engineering company and so life changed course and now I am doing what I am doing today and love it.

#1: '91 Mitsubishi Mighty Max (Now the delivery truck at Irvine Subaru) (WRB-like Blue)
#2: '03 WRX WRB (Traded it for...)
#3: '05 STi WRB on silver for street and gold wheels for auto-x (Stock)
-Wife's car is a white '02 O-Z Lancer

Subaru: I loved racing, watched NASCAR when I was kid because there wasn't anything else to ever watch. Found out about cars like the Skyline and became interested in AWD which led my interests to rally racing. I was determined to buy an Evo when they came over but was out of my budget. After considering a 2.5rs I settled on a WRX in 2002. Rally-x and Auto-x is awesome.

So what do you do for work or school? What's your major or profession. How did you end up where you are? What made you get a Subaru?
Work:
Inside Sales Representative for United Rentals/Male giggolo/Sugar Moma catcher
Ended up here after being an Account Executive and company downsized and moved all Sales Operations to Jupiter, FL
School:
B.S. Business Management and Administration with a minor in International Business from Cal State LA
Subaru:
Was a Honda head for years got tired of N/A power. Decided to get Boosted. Friend of mine sold his bug-i for a Forester XT, rode in it, heard the boxer rumble fell in love. Was going to go for an 05 he told me to wait for 06 for the 2.5 engine. Best decision I made, hated the design of the pignose till I saw it in person.
Now going Euro style
