Two stories of when I was looking at WRXs before I got mine
First I saw a silver bugeye wagon parked on the side of the road in my town, so I pull over and made my friend leave a note on the car. A few hours later I get a call from the owner, an older guy telling me the car wasn't for sale yet but then asked why I wanted a Subaru, because "they're old people cars." Little does he know that younger kids would love to own one.
Another story about an actual for sale silver bugeye wagon in my town for sale, the car was pretty well modded with a wilwood brake kit, catback, intake, STi intercooler, and intercooler and radiator. The guy decides to take me for a ride along and as soon as he hits boost, the car starts making a screaming noise like a police siren. This immediately scared me away from the car, but his excuse was that the car did this because it was taking in too much air. I later looked it up and the two things it could have been was an intercooler hose leak or blown/broken turbo
I also ended up buying a silver bugeye wagon, but from neither of these guys
