Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
So this was my first car I got at 18. It was maybe like a half mile from my work. I used to drive past it everyday on my way. It was always parked at a mechanic shop/car lot. I just stopped in one day and asked it if was for sale and it turned out it was actually the owners personal car. He was reluctant to sell it at first but ended up letting me purchase it.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
Surprisingly not. Car was literally bone stock minus some different wheels at the time.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
Oh there’s no way lol. I would still like to do a full wrx swap on the car. Make it just a tad faster and have it make all the right noises. And my interior after that I think I’ll be happy with it minus just random odds and ends. Are any of our cars really done though lol.

Flared Subaru Impreza 2.5rs

What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
It’s an Ohio car. Is there more I got to say. She’s crusty. Could be worse don’t get me wrong just makes it that much more fun to have to work on.

If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
Honestly no. It was my favorite car back then and still holds a very high spot on my favorite car list.
