Default Cars we modified before age 21

Someone on a local forum had this idea for a thread.
I'm sure I'm not the only got into modding cars at an early age so I'd like to see what got everyone started.

Here's mine along with my car history for giggles:

2004 Forester XT 5 speed (age 18).
I thought I was hot **** with painted red calipers and lowered OEM suspension like every Forester guy out there. I had a lot of dumb ideas running through my head in the short time I owned the car. Thank god I did not go through with them.

Next mods that were going to go on the car were wood panel vinyl on the interior, going nuts with plastidip and stickers. Lots of them. And last but not least typical stage 2





Here are my cars since my first Forester.

My 2004 WRX (Age 18-19) next to my first car which I kept up until 2 years ago.
WRX was run of the milll stage 2 with some old school parts.
The ugly wheels on the Altima were put on by my father when he lost 2 hubcaps on the highway and decided to go with some wheels from our local Town Fair Tire so I guess that counts as a mod before I was 21.





My 2nd Forester XT 5 speed (Age 20-21)
One of maybe a handful sets of 18x9.5 Work XT7s in 5x100 in the specs I had.



My two current cars at age 22. S2000 and Civic EX 5 speed.

I was really into Honda for a while. I still love them for what they are but Subaru > Honda for sure.

This was my first car that I did modifications on (1996 Integra GSR)






I was also into weight reduction for this car (end weight was about 2000lbs [not seen here])



And yes, I also had painted my OEM calipers red... it makes the car faster.

Default Cars we modified before age 21

First car: 2005 honda pilot (16-19) When I didn't know **** about cars and wasted $4000+ on subs and 20" wheels. Had two 15" alpine type r's, amp, cap, 0g wiring. Had sweet HIDs, DIY LED halos, JDM DIY fogs, blacked out logos and tails, cut off muffler, custom intake, painted valve cover, sticker bombed interior, tons of stupid ****.


God I wish I saved that and spent it on my current car :'( Current: (19-now, I'm 21) my dumb loud POS Impreza

Holy crap, we are twins!

I'm 18 now and these are my cars:

I got my Z when I was 17. It wasn't taken care of by its previous owners, but I set out to make it a driving machine. Today it is lowered on Powertrix coliovers, sits on 18x9.5in wheels, has a block back exhaust with a rare Kakimoto single exit I imported from Japan, and a whole slew of other mods. I daily drove it for about a year, but the engine needs some love so it got retired as my daily.

The day I got it, man was it ugly...


How it sits and sounds today


Next up is my Bugeye I got about a month ago. Its mostly stock with a Prodrive axle back and catless downpipe with much more to come in the near future. It replaced my Z as my daily and so far I love it!

Surely you can't lump everyone into that category. I worked 40 hours a week when I was 16.

I bought my first car at 15, a 1981 Porsche 924 turbo with a 5 speed. I will have to dig for pictures of that.

Then, at 16, I bought this 1998 Impreza 5 speed with 123,000 miles. I autocrossed and dd'd that car for 40,000 miles. I now use it as my winter beater. It has KYB AGX and H&R springs, uel headers, Stromung exhaust, wrx wheels, aftermarket HU and speakers.



At 20 (last November) I bought this 02 WRX 5 speed with 147,000 miles. Went stage two with it, then sold it in March with 153,000 miles after I bought my current car. I bought coilovers for it, but sold it before I had the chance to install them.



I'm 21 now, and this is my current car, a 2013 WRX base, that I bought with 16,000 miles. It spun a rod bearing a month into ownershhip, which was covered under warranty. It now has 22,000 miles and runs great. It has a Greddy TI-C, and KW V1 coils. I add random stuff when I find it cheap on Craigslist or here. Wheels next hopefully.

Booty pre-drop.


Post drop.


I have a car buying problem, as I am sure you all do too!
