04 wrx wagon with full sti drivetrain. The current winter setup pic is the only one I have of it currently. They are the sti bbs wheels powder coated in black. The brembos are powder coated in black as well.
I saw you in PA when I was coming back from Camelback last year. I remember your license plate. I gave it a look as I was driving a 07 WRX sedan.

I could push it further but the car is my daily and I want it to last. What I like most is no turbo lag (full boost by ~3,000 rpms), the low end torque is phenomenal, coupled with the awd system makes it a great car to drive in the mountains. I've been tossing around the idea of getting a Legacy GT Wagon or WRX wagon because maintenance is cheaper and more space but cant bring myself to sell this car. STI's are real fun to drive too!! Also been eyeing this S4 Wagon, makes about as much power as my car but is the ultimate sleeper.
s4 wagons are so sweet. now if only they made an rs4 wagon.... >: )

Haha thanks! Let's see...it has a 6" Fabtech (replaced the Fabtech shocks with Bilstein 5100s) and a 3" PA Body Lift. The rims are 20" rockstars and the meats are 37" toyo MTs!

I just bought basically my dream truck...a 1996 (1st gen) x-cab 4x4 toyota tacoma that is in very very good condition, its at 122k miles. Its my "dream truck" because the 1st gen tacoma is one of the best 4x4 trucks you can buy, it is small, light and nimble so it can get through any trail, it is built to be an offroader and even stock has great ground clearence, it has an amazing bulletproof engine,and the aftermarket is increadible, plus many others i cant remember. The only reason i bought a truck at 122k miles is because it is a 1st gen toyota tacoma and they are famous for lasting forever. I loved my lowered 2wd 99 tacoma (and had to sell it to buy this one), but i really wanted a 4x4. So i found this one that was very well taken care of and jumped on it. Of course one of the biggest reasons i got a 4x4 was for driving in the winter to go snowboarding, so this will be my new mountain assault vehicle!

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Slight tangent, but it's a shame there are none of the AWD Toyota wagons here in US/North America. Caldina's are great, and have that 'go forever' factor nicely built in as Toyota's do

That is a great lookng grille! Normally I don't think aftermarket grilles look very good on cars (trucks can usually rock any kind of grille and look fine) but that chrome mesh looks really clean.

And thanks wolf, I can't wait to really get it plowing through some snow. I have these wild fantacies of my truck charging through snow in this epic fashion like the arctic hiluxs do. Dam its gonna be fun
