Default PSM_02_WRX's 2002 WRX Build

Well I was checking out my buddy Emsmap's build thread and decided to make my own. I bought my bugeye back in October 2008. Bone stock and adult owned. Used to be a kennel car, so the only problem with it was dog hair in the car. This car was one of my dream cars and since its paid off, will be in my car collection forever. The car has seen the drag strip a few times and also been in some car shows. Best place in car show was 2nd place Best Subaru out of 9 Subarus at a Baltimore car show. Best run at the track is 13.4 @ 97 mph with Intake and Turbo back exhaust (no tune). In this thread will be a few different "Chapters or Sections"

2) ***When I First Bought The Car***
October 2008







3) ***The Accident***
July 2009

Basically what happened here is I was driving home from a car meet. Speed limit was 40 and I was doing 30. A guy just pulled out in front of me and then stopped right in the middle of the road. No warning or turn signals what so ever. Police saw it all happen. For me it was either lock up my brakes and mash him completely, swerve and hit a truck head on and probably not be here today to write this, or do as I did and swerve after the truck had passed. Luckily the airbags did not pop.







4) ***As It Sits Today***
June 2010

After I Took Wing Off

I like it. Maybe just some springs or coilovers and you're all set. Silver bugeyes look sick. Where did you get the MAIC sticker though? I need one.

So tonight my car build went to complete ****. Unless insurance says otherwise the car looks totaled to me. The frame is actually split from where the previous accident weakened it. So here is my nightmare right now.
