I've been interested in cars in general since a young age. My entire life, I've worked on every vehicle I've had from one end to the other. When I bought my first Subaru, a 1999 Impreza RS, my real interest began. While I didn't modify it as much as I could have, I started learning how to work on Subaru's. There just aren't many shops out there that will even touch the cars, let alone have any idea of what should be done to them that is effective AND affordable. My current WRX is a permanent work in progress. I will never finish it, because there is always one more thing I could upgrade, change, improve, modify or fabricate lol! I used to be a professional welder/fabricator(now I'm the welders boss), and I'm still certified, so I have a few extra skills to feed my performance needs. Working on other peoples cars was kind of my wife's idea. She saw how much time I spent on research and planning and realized I could offer those same skills to others.
1999 Impreza RS
My first Subaru.
I bought my RS in 2000, thinking it was just a cool looking car, not realizing I was going to be hooked. Being young and broke I didn't do much to it, a cold air intake, exhaust and a decent stereo. But I loved it anyway, and wouldn't mind having another one.
