when i was 15-16 years old i saw a youtube video about 2 friends and how they both had bug eye wrx's, ever since i decided that i needed to own one. I started off with a 92 integra that i knew i could trade for something slightly newer, 2 months of owning the integra i end up trading for 96 civic sedan, this car was a bit more reliable so i stuck with it for about 4 months until i got offered a 97 civic coupe. The coupe was clean but auto so immediately posted it for sale and got a good amount for it. i then found a 99 civic hatch that was super clean but it was cheap so i knew something was wrong with it. i bit the bullet and bought it, turns out that it had 8 codes and the guy took the check engine light bulb out....(got me). i ended up scoring a job at subaru as a valet. knowing i was young and didnt have to pay many bills (insurance/rent/phone) that i could save a lot of money. i was a valet for 2 months putting in 58 hours a week at 9hr. i then got offered an express tech position at subaru so i took it. now i knew i needed to fix my car and so i did it all at once using my bay at work and got it tagged. 8 month later of me changing oil and replacing bulbs i had a good amount of money saved. so i found this wrx and told the guy give me one week and ill have the money (he was asking 5500). i found a buyer for my hatch and just like that as he gave me the money i gave it to the guy with the subaru. and thats the story of me getting this thing.
