The story:

What's up guys, My name is Aaron and here's a little something about my GF Impreza

I actually own 3 Imprezas at the moment,

But out of the 3 that I own, the wagon is my favorite hands down. Sedan might give true jdm look, while coupe looks great, sporty and uncommon on Impreza line up. But despite all that, wagon wins it because she’s really practical and has so much room. When I need to go out to get parts from my local classified, she’s always there to carry the load. Once, I load up full set of wheels w/tires plus 5 extra tires in the wagon (it fits y0), also another time I managed to put jdm aluminum hood and front bumper complete w/ beam into the wagon

The wagon is basically what I use to build, and get parts for my other Imprezas.


Little history about the wagon,

She’s actually the reincarnation of my first Impreza, I had 98 brilliant red L wagon. That wagon was my first step into wonderful Subaru community. Little over a year, she was totaled because of my own stupidity; I was disappointed but learnt my lesson at the same time. I didn’t want all the parts on the totaled wagon go wasted (suspension bits + spoilers), so right away I start looking for its replacement. I like brilliant red color and would like to save some money for paint job, so my target was to find another brilliant red wagon. I looked all over craigslist but there was none around tri-state, until one day a friend of mine gave me a call and told me there’s a 1997 brilliant red impreza wagon up in New Hampshire. I called off from work the next day and head up there to pick it up, it was ~ 10 hrs roundtrip but it was worth it.

I slowly transfer all the stuff on my old wagon into the new one. As I’m doing so, I did lots of research on swapping my wagon. I know I will need another car to drive around when she’s down for swap, so I purchased another impreza (sedan). Time goes by and as you all know I ended up with 3 Imprezas now. My plan has changed for her; I decide to swap my obd1 coupe instead and keep the wagon as daily. She’s still strong and runs like a champ for 207xxx miles, I believe EJ22E is one of the most reliable motor FHI ever built. I haven’t done much on the engine other than oil change. The Mcdonalds theme seems to work well on my wagon and I always love JDM STI V7 wheels (heck at one point I even have 2 sets) so here’s my entry for this contest.

Thanks for Looking
