Default Eh, howzit!

Just signed on to the site after picking up a 2013 Impreza (non-WRX/STI) hatchback this past weekend. Been lurking on the site and like what I've seen so far - especially the engine swaps section. New to Subaru and import ownership in general. Still getting used to driving with AWD and having less than half the horsepower compared to my Mustang. No need to get accustomed to the improved mileage, modern suspension (IRS!), and quieter ride. May even consider picking up a BRZ some time in the future if this car lives up to Subaru's reputation and does well as my surf mobile/DD.

Thanks for the welcome!

Still own the Mustang. It is a '87-'93 "notch" body style. Painted in Bright Atlantic Blue - similar to WR Blue Pearl. I know I wouldn't get much for it considering it is 20 years old. Plus, a late friend built the motor currently residing under the hood (bored x stroked with H/C/I), so it has sentimental value too. Slated to get a Cobra brake conversion plus other suspension bits hopefully in the near future as the boxes are gathering dust from sitting around for a couple of years.
No plans to modify the Impreza - but you know how that goes...
