I turned 50 in December. I have owned fast cars ever since I was 17. A few years ago, I sold my 550+ hp (wheels) supercharged 5.0 Mustang due to the economy. Early last year I bought my first Subaru, a 2004 WRX. I really liked the car but wanted more power, so I bought a 2004 STI several months later.

I am a true horsepower addict. Contrary to what my parents told me early on in life, I have never outgrown my love for high performance cars!

We are both 40 and have one kid. We just grabbed our 2014 SWP hatch since it is the last fun awd turbo hatch under $30k. We had a 2002 mbp wrx wagon a while ago and missed it.

35, planning my first big build on the 2002 wrx. Just finished an 11.3:1 high comp build on a 99 Neon coupe I bought new at 19, hoping for an LS-turbo swap on a 71 Jimmy this year, next year hope to rear drive SRT4 engine swap a 95 Neon I bought 14 years ago.

Age is just a number, the important part is that we're still playing with cars.

A few years shy of 50 and just put down a deposit on a 2014 DGM hatch. I currently own a '99 Forester, but have never owned a turbo in my life.

I am 30, owned a 02 wrx back in the day. I bought a '13 Premium Sedan almost a year to the day. I ordered a '14 Sti Base Sedan in the same color (or may be DGM depending on what Subaru wants to paint)

4-7 weeks left

Be careful! It's really addicting to mash the pedal and you're at double the limit before you know it.

33 here... Wife & 2 kids. Had a modded Altima SE-R before this, hated the understeer/torque steer. Picked up a '13 WRX hatch earlier this year. Gone stage 2, plus some other mods. Love this car! Its unbelievable how easy it is to throw money into this car. So much to mod, so little time...

31, 2007 sti widebody … 668hp but that might change soon…. I want to get a replacement for my GT3788R. Car spends more time in pieces then my previous mustangs but when i do get to drive it i love it.

But just got married in November and the Car hasn't been driven in over a year in a half. Gotta start working on it again soon.

In the mean time, just bought a 2013 tangerine XV with my wife and this year or next once its offered in a turbo model we will be buying a black BRZ just to turn around and paint it to match the XV. LOL

This definitely! Invest in a radar detector. Those 20-90 pulls are quite addicting

30 years old - Bought the '03 WRX wagon back in the day, then down the road picked up my '06 STi (couldn't bring myself to sell the Wagon). And just recently bought the wife and baby a '14 Forester XT as a family car. '03 and '06 are both stage 2 with a bunch of other mods, '14 is bone stock and hopefully I can keep it that way...

Anyone who says you outgrow this, was never a car guy to begin with.

42, and recently purchased a 2014 WRX hatch. Short shifter and Cobb shift knob are the only mods so far, but plan on upgrading sway bars, getting an alignment and most likely changing out tires for something with more grip. Also plan on upgrading the head unit and speakers.

Might due a tune and down pipe down the road, but pretty happy with the stock power and want to retain the warranty.

32 married with 1 kid. I have a protuned stage 1 SWP WRX limited as a daily driver. I have a cobb sf intake, process west tmic, ap v3 and a couple of tasteful exterior mods. I have a 11 GT500 with close to 700 rwhp as my weekend fun car. I have owned 3 mustangs (2 of 3 supercharged) and 6 sport bikes up to this point. I gave up sport bikes when I got married and my wife promised me that I can always have fun cars in return.

Was 31 When I got my '02 new in '01. Now I'm 44 and had the '02 for 12 years and 72k. Now I'm driving a '13 hatch, wonder if I'll still have it at 57?

The only thing that sucks about this car is I cannot take the family for a ride. I can only take 2 kids at a time. The rear doors physically WILL NOT close with two booster seats and the infant car seat. So I am stuck driving the wifes SUV on family outings.

Daughter love when I take her to school though.
