I drive from Anchorage to Clear AFS twice a week; roads haven't been too bad. Can't speak for Clear to Fairbanks though, I only make that drive if I have no choice =P

Just ordered a seibon CW hood. I've been wanting to get one for years and figured it would be a good buy for the spring.

I know it's April 1st now but this is not a joke. Last milage shot, every mile was fun and I had a smile on my face the entire time. I've traded in the car for a new truck, looking forward to what toys I can pull when I move to the lower 48. I know I'll miss my car but I feel this is a more mature and exciting step.

That's really sad, but congrats! Very responsible choice. The truck will be very useful!

This is the name of the game for performance Subies. Hardly anyone keeps them for long for one reason or another.

If I could turn back time I would never have sold my 06 STi. I bought that sucker new and when I sold it I was sure I'd spend another 3 years in Japan. Hopefully the 17 Limited I just picked up sparks the same feels.

All in all I've had an STi for over 8 years. Was great and still love them. Will most likely end up with another one.

If you like amenities, then the limited will spark better feels then the 06. At least mine did.

Pretty good. Just cleaned a lot. There were ware creases (best word to describe) in my seat but not bad. Even with two kiddos in the back, looked like new still.

Taking it slow with my car. By that I mean, any time the forecast says "thunderstorms" possible I drive our beater. We purchased a car from a departing coworker for dirt cheap. It's a high milage, front wheel drive, able to take the hail damage with no care. I'm just over 1600 miles so far. LOVE IT MORE THAN THE 2015 aaannnddd the 2007 STi. I'd post a picture but photobucket...

Shoot I meant to put it in the story but I'm still going coo coo cachoo over the new car.

It's a 2004 Pontiac Sunfire. I used to during the 103 day wait after I sold my truck. Glad we were lucky to have stumbled on this beater as it saved us, I'd like to say thousands. I looked up how much it was to rent a car and it was dang near $1600 a month. NO THANKS.

Ah yes, the Aztek sedan. Always good to find a beater in a pinch!
