The Story

Checkout my YouTube channel & Instagram for more posts about my car. YouTube.com/hawkeyestiguy1  Instagram @HawkeyeSTiGuy Her name is Aurora, and this is her story…From the time I was 17 until I was 20, I was a die-hard Evo fanboy. In my mind, it was the king of all cars. Even watching Clarkson review both on Top Gear, I always sided with the Evo. My good friend Matt, AKA SubaruWRXFan, was a die-hard STi fan. In fact, we rode the bus together & any time he saw a WRX or STi, he would giggle like a school girl, pretty much the same way he does on his YouTube channel when he does a pull in a fast car. Lol. I never understood his obsession with STi’s. At the time, the Evo seemed to be so aggressive & badass, while the STi was much more reserved, almost boring in fact. It just didn’t appeal to me at all really.  Well, I joined the USAF & went off to basic training. While there, every day the same ’09 STi hatchback(white w/CF hood & accents) drove by. I wasn’t allowed to turn my head while in formation, but I couldn’t help but stare at it out of the corner of my eye. After 8 weeks, the rumble of that flat four started to resonate in my heart & grew a passion deep in my soul. After I graduated tech school, I moved to South Carolina & immediately started looking high & low for STi’s. I was desperate, I needed on ASAP! I didn’t care what year or color it was. It took several weeks of searching, but I saw a for sale listing pop up on one of the forums I was stalking. I jumped on it! I contacted the seller within an hour of him posting it & asked to see it. Two weeks later I was learning how to drive stick for the first time in my new-to-me 2006 Hawkeye STi.  I purchased it on December 14th, 2010 with 73K on the odometer.  Five & a half years later, after racking up an additional 80K miles, after replacing the engine twice(both times were caused by other parts failing), and despite being crashed into 3 separate times, I can honestly say that I love my car more now than ever before. I have named this car Aurora, because she is something very special to me. I look back at how much it has changed over the past few years, & I look at how much I have changed over the past few years, then I realize that both Aurora and I have grown together. This was the car I learned to drive manual on, the first car I purchased on my own & have in my name, the car that safely allowed me to drive 700+ miles home in terrible winter weather to see my family for the holidays. I want this car to be something I can share with & pass down to my future kids someday. I have absolutely no intentions of selling my STi. To do so, would be like selling a piece of my life.
