VEHICLE STORY

   I always wanted a fast car. Coming from a 94' Plymouth Acclaim, 92' Buick Lesabre, 91' Hyundai Excel and a 92' Honda Accord I was left craving power and torque. I would see other guys driving hot hatches or just fast cars in general and it made me want to run my piece of shit vehicle into a telephone pole.     So one day close to my 25th birthday I started saving as much money as possible for a down payment.  I managed to bank $5,000 in just 6 months. I narrowed my list of potential cars to a 2010 WRX and my 2011 Mazdaspeed3. The dealership selling the Speed3 called me back first.    After getting the car home I vowed not to modify it in anyway and to just enjoy it in stock form. Well within the first 5 months of ownership I was nearly fully bolted and tuned lol. Now I'm done seeking power because it's really fast and at the limits of what the front tires can handle.     So that's my story. Thanks for reading, or not.
