Default Post pics of your OLD ride, and of your NEW ride.

I didn't see this in akic yet and so I thought I would start it.*

Post pics of your old ride and then your newest current ride.

This was my old ride back in 08-09. A 98 Talon TSI awd. It didn't have much, except for a k&n cai, eclipse lifters and an aftermarket boost gauge and of course the rims. I didn't have it long until an old lady ran into me head on while I was stopped at a light. I miss her but I'm more than happy with what I've got now





And this is my new obsession!

Bought this 08 Scion tC when I was 19 from Kendall Toyota. Threw on several mods as well.

Got bored of that and picked up an 04 GSXR 600

Got bored of it too so I sold that and the tC for the 07 STi.

Definitely plan on keeping this one and adding more mods throughout time.

Don't make fun of the rims I bought the car used and this is what it came with and it wasn't a priority to change them
2001 Honda Accord coupe....LOVED this car...I got rid of it in 2007 with 120K miles on it. I owned an 08 Camry for about a year before I picked up my WRX

That's hilarious, I actually sold my old '96 RS eclipse and my brand new gaming laptop so that I could buy it, but talked myself out of it last minute.

Then my first real car, 2004 Acura TSX, Inejn CAI, Comptech Exhaust, and DC Header. Some of the oldest members remember this one, I used to show up to the meets in this thing.


When she was still new

7 years later

We've actually had this thread before, several times. QwikEVO did the most recent one, I believe. Oh well.

First car was a 1993 (?) Subaru Loyale sedan



That got totaled by a drunk driver. I loved that car up until then! Eventually I got a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder.



(Not mine, but same color and everything).

I was perfectly fine with that until I saw this car and just HAD to have it!



Over several years of replacing parts on this lemon, however, I finally got pissed off and bought this car while I was making good enough money to make two payments (I was SOOO pissed at the RS, you don't even know).



For some reason I decided I wanted to be taken a little more seriously as an eligible bachelor, so I traded the STI in for something a little more family-friendly.



I soon realized that I had NO desire to appear ready to have a family or pretend that I was some kind of happy, Alaskan fishercamperhunterdoglover, so I sold the Forester without REALLY knowing what I wanted next. Eventually Subaru released pics of something truly amazing that I just HAD to pre-order.



And as she sits now in winter mode:

My first car was a 1996 Nissan gxe coupe which I though was the $h!t when I was in highschool

My second car was a 2002 hind civic turboed, too I'd the line tein coil overs with edfc,


Shortly after that I purchased a 2003 wrx which now has a 2.5 sti short block in it


After the Honda died I picked up a 2010 wrx and got Cobb springs and sway bars, spt exhaust and 18x8 msr wheels. I got t-boned and the car was totaled.


I picked up a 1999 jeep to do some off roading


And now I drive a 2011 sti sedan when I'm not driving my wrx in the winter

Not pictured first car was a 92 subaru loyale.

Then 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Then the car I always regretted selling

03 wrx


Sold that and got a 04 sti


Then went in on a truck with my girlfriend (now wife) 2004 ford f150


Moved to AZ and got a job with 70 mile commute. Sold the sti to my Bro and got a 2006 honda accord (no pics but it was just a stock accord)

Sold the truck when gas prices went crazy and had a kid so we needed something that held a stroller better than a truck. So we stumbled on this 2003 IS300 sportcross which is a pretty rare car


My accord lease was up and wanted to get back into something quick so I got this 2005 evo viii. The handling on this thing was amazing. My wrx had almost every suspension mod and still didnt handle as well as this car.


Wifey hated the lexus ( have no idea why, that car was great) but we traded that in for an 08 pilot since another kid was on the way.

I then sold the evo after getting a good offer for it, mainly to also get this car which I always wanted. 97 Toyota Supra--Wheels are on the way btw, I know it looks bad with the stockers.



I hope to add a 02-03 wrx wagon as a winter ride. So if anybody knows whose selling one let me know.

hmmm.... alright, I'm resurecting a list I made 4-5 years ago for this...

1. '84 chevy citation, kinda a loaner from dad
2. '78 Oldsmobile Tornoda, another loaner
3. '80 mercury Capri (just like a mustang) First car I actually bought, I was 16. it was a 4cyl car but it was red and looked cool.
4. '79 El Camino. My first 350 4spd car. cool! Clutch was out in about a week.
5. '80 Chevy C10 2x stepside pickup. 250 I-6 and 3 on the tree. This was in 1990 and cruisin in trucks was taking off across the nation. This one was a custom removable hardtop along with house speakers in the bed. Got alot of attention, my friends all made fun of me. Girls liked it.
6. '70 k20 4x long bed 4spd got it as partial payment for working for my uncle for the summer. Timing chain went out after a month, wasn't worth enough to fix.
7. '83 mercury capri, this time it was a 302/5spd car. no title, looked like a reconstruct. Bought it for $200, drove it a weekend and blew the motor. Had fun watching it bounce down a cliff.
8. '71 GMC Jimmy 4x full removable top and 4x, some fun. rusty but had a cool full cage.
9. '80 Z28 camaro t-tops, 350/4spd car, my first reasonably fast car that lasted a while.
10. '84 jeep j-20 blue tank w/ 360. Had what looked to be dumptruck rear springs.
11. '82 Rx7, fun little sports car I still have. You can read about it's evoloution in another blog on here.
12. '77 c-10 2x PU w/ 454. Really good at burnouts and donuts.
13. '86 MR-2 sporty little red job, underpowered
14. '66 baja bug. bought kinda on accident at a car auction. swapped the motor first night I had it. introduced me to the fun of the bug and german autos
15. '93 suzuki dr350s, first motorcycle, street legal motorcross fun.
16. '72 K5 blazer. First serious 4x I ever built. 6" lift, 35's, 4.56 +auburn in the rear, holley projection, kayline softtop. Fun.
17. '78 CJ-5 what a rust bucket but it ran and drove great. Swapped tubs, 5-6" lift, SRS, 35's, 8000 winch, locker, frame finally rusted in half.
18. '76 BMW 535 or something like that.
19. '84 (I think) kawasaki ninja 900. I only owned that one for a day. even I could tell I shouldn't be driving that devil speed machine.
20. '69 J4000. old. dunno why I had that thing.
21. '73 chevy k3500 flatbed. Good work/trash truck.
22. '84 CJ-7. Owned for a day, made $500.
23. '84 wagoneer bought for $100. $50 water pump, $50 fan, 2x $1 bolts, sold for $2500. Sweet! had it less than a week.
24. '83 CJ-7. Jeep I bought and built after I knew how to build jeeps. 4.56 gear, locked up @ both ends, 8000# winch, SOA, 36's about a dozen other mods. Cool jeep, would go almost anywhere. It's still on aussielocker.com's home page.
25. '88 cherokee built as a driver when my CJ7 became more off-road than on-road ( read - couldn't afford to replace tires every year). 4.5" lift & 32's, fun ride.
26. '89 Cherokee built to replace high mileage 88 cherokee. ARB/OME 2.5" lift and 31's, ARB bullbar. Really nice driver.
27. '97 Wrangler cool... jeeps finaly making a rig worth owning again! My best work yet, 6" lift, lockers, 35's, 8000# winch. Got this one into JP magazine, Fourwheeler Magazine, and the Warn promotional ads and Catalog.
28. '91 Chevy K1500 w/ cabover camper. A concesion I made for the woman, it was never big enough for us.
29. '99 F350 V10, big purple truck I bought from Ed, pretty cool. Full compliment of Banks Power stuff, 6" RCD lift, 38's, 4.88 gears, Safari Guard Bumper, fast and fun!
30. '72 Datsun 240z, triple carbs, headers, factory roll bar, fender flares, mean little black machine.
31. '76 CJ5 4" lift, 33's and a 360, scary to drive but loud and fun!
32. '94 Suzuki DR350se Liked the first one so much I got another.
33. '73 SuperBeetle. Not nearly as cool as my '66.
34. '00 F350 7.3 CrewCab Current truck, good puller. 120hp chip and an exhaust really wakes these things up!

35. '81 Toyota sr5 4x pickup, Never got off the ground.
36. '95 240sx cool little car I picked up as a drive to work car. Dream of putting a tubo in it but then won't be legal to drive year round. Darn.
37.'89 mustang road racer, built to the American Iron race series specs. Way Fun car! 13" brembos stop it, 12" race rubber all around, Maximuim Motorsports suspension, full cage, blah blah blah...

38. 1997 Discovery, 3" lift and 34" LTB's. Nice!
39. 1997 Jeep TJ, built in every way. 'nuff said.

39. 1992 Subaru Legacy SS, Turbo, tuned suspension, first and only subbie, awesome!
40. 1997 VW Cabrio, chipped, lowered, swaybarrs, close ratio tranny, DD and drop-top in HI!



Theres lots more pics, but I'm bored. Cheers!
