Default Canuck's road to a 2015 WRX

Hello all. I was thinking of doing a build thread. But there seems to be enough of them here. So instead I will just post pictures of my past cars (not many) and how I got to were I am now.

It all started one winter in the year 2001. I was out searching cars like Z28s and mustangs. As most 16 years do, dreams only to be crushed by the parents. They were trying to get me into a neon (not r/t) or an old grandma car of some kind. I guess these types of cars keep the insurance down. Off to the used car lot to search. After looking around we came across this beauty. I was always a fan of the older grand ams. I learned a lot with this car. I learned the more crap you put on the car, the more cops like to pull you over. Also learn that neutral slamming makes the car seem fast.

1993 Grand Am GT


This car had (2) 12" subs and was really loud. I some how managed to pick up lots of women in this car. This includes my current wife. I actually miss this car. The memories your first car does to you.

After the grand am and all the money in repairs I was having to put into it. I got a better paying job and started looking at new cars. Went back to the same dealership (ford) and started looking at other cars. The sales guy mentioned they had a new 2002 focus svt in the lot. After test driving it, I was in love. Had to have it no mater what. So in 2002 I was the proud owner of 2002 Ford Focus SVT. This time I wasn't going the same crazy "rice" route I did with the grand am. So I thought...


This only lasted a month. Then it came to me, "how to make a car look nice." And the start of an amazing looking SVT began.





Well as most of you know cars are never fast enough. So I had to add some power!!!!!

In the end it looked like this. Nitrous, H&R coilovers, full exhaust (magnaflow), AEM intake, euro headlights(my favorite and most $$ part on the car)



In the year 2010, all good things come to an end. At around 71,000 miles the timing belt broke and that is what killed the engine. lol The car was paid off and I was enjoying no car payment. Was married and the talk of having kids was starting to set in. Well it was going to cost 5k to fix the car. Instead of fixing it, I went out and bought a cheaper new car. Not knowing what having kids was going to cost. So that is how I came across the 2010 ford focus SES. Power was just not there, but it was a car. And it was a cheap payment.



How long was this going to last....well 5 years too long. And with a much better job, a 3 year old and thoughts of a second kid on the way. I need a 4 door car. And what better 4 door can you get then a 2015 WRX. Took some convincing from the wife. But I manage to make it happen. My original plan was pay off the 2010 focus and keep that as my DD. Then buy a nice mustang svt (98 or 03-04) and keep that in the garage. But instead I got the best of both worlds. I have a fun, fast and family DD car.



Just like the SVT, I am going to be very smart with the choices I making with my mods. Thank you reading my thread. I will add things I learn and random pictures as the car grows up.
