So alot of people were asking how I was able to find my 2005 STi that I was the Original owner of. Actually it found me.. The Current owner remembered a post when he bought it that indicated that If I had the means, I would love to buy it back and he reached out to me asking if I would be interested in buying it back.. It has had 4 owners.. me.. a 3 month transitional person that sold it after 3 months after buying it from Subaru of JAX. That person sold it to a friend and he kept the car for 9 years, mainly down in Orlando Fla. That person went thru various stages with it. He sold it to the current owner, Another Friend, but not before asking me if wanted to buy it back, back in 2016.. I couldn't afford at the time as life was going thru a transition for me. Fast forward til now and like I said, the current owner, whose owned it for the last 4 years, reached back out to me to see if I would be interested.. .and here we are . I am beyond stoked to get this thing back in my possession and look forward to keeping it around for the long haul.. A brief pictorial history from Brand new listed below including various Liveries of when I owned it before as well as the current configuration towards the end. It spent life as a Autocross car when I owned it before, but now will be enjoyed just with meets and cruises. It still incorporates many of the Mods I did when I first owned it.
-JDM Fogs
-JDM Sidemarkers
Many other JDM goodies. I have already started accumulating many new parts to get it back into New condition, Including new drip rail moldings, New Belt moldings, New undertray, Intercooler Gasket, New Center Gauge Pod, New Gauges.. and lots of other goodies.
