First off I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in this process of weeding out different cars and what not. Without you guys I would have ended up with a clunker.

Anyways, So my name is Steven. Im 18 and i'm from MA. In January I decided I was going to get a job and start saving for a new car. So I got a job and started saving EVERY PENNY. My girlfriend did not like this. Anyways, I searched craigslist DAILY for a WRX in my price range. I was looking at the numbers and couldnt find one lower than 7k! So I said to myself, "self, you can either settle for a decent car, or you can get on that work grind and make some serious money" So I went out and I got two more jobs. I was working close to 60 hrs a week.

Skip 6 months later, I was on NASIOC and was looking in the for sale section and I come across a Legacy GT ad. I had never really thought of anything but the WRX. But I clicked the ad and it was like love at first sight! The ad was for a 2006 Legacy GT Spec B #368/500!
I searched this car and talked to some people who had LGT and they convinced me to get it.

Am I sad I didnt get a wrx? Yes. Am I happy with the LGT? Yes!

Anyways, thats my story.

On to the pics.

2006 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B #368/500 83k miles

(still dirty, going to detail tm! And sorry for crappy cell pics. Will get better ones soon!)

Congrats! Can you explain the lien situation? That was my only concern from your first thread.

Gotta respect a kid that works for his turbo car. 99% less likely to do something incredibly stupid than a kid who's parents bought him the turbocar. Well done OP.

T think, I usually HATE teenagers. You sir, KICK ASS.:cool:

What does this have to do with anything in this thread?

Congrats on the car! Always liked that interior color!

spc2125 07-07-2012 07:32 AM

Thank you to all!!!
This car will be my baby until I actually have a baby :p

I went to a private high school and so everybody had rich parents. (Mom is unemployed) But I was lucky enough to have the hammy down Olds Alero that I made my own.

And almost every kid at that school had like a bmw or range rover or mercedes. So when I got my car sophomore year, I made it my prerogative to learn about cars. Little by little did I learn about my car and started doing routine maintenance and stuff on it. Eventually did mods to it with me and a buddy. (full exhaust. headers, high flow cat. dual outlet muffler)
I would listen to the kids talk about their cars and how their so fast. I just laugh because I know that 98% of those kids dont even know how to change their own oil!

So I kinda dont think too highly of the people who drive their parents nice cars and brag about it . I dont mind if you drive it, because thats not your fault that your parents had good jobs, but dont brag about your car when
1. you dont even know how it works
2. you didnt pay a dime, nor do you even pay for gas

Anyways, so I kind of feel like the only way to actually be proud of something that you have, is if you dedicate yourself to a goal, and strive everyday to achieve it. And thats what I did. Let me tell you, I barely got any sleep these past months. Would work from 7am till 3am on the weekends. I would go from one job to the next (worked as a barback ((like a bartender assistant)) at a bar).

But here she is and I am damn proud of myself. Sorry If I sound a little arrogant. But I am just excited and overjoyed that I finally got my car.

Its simple. Guy was in financial trouble. He had a loan that he still owed $8500. So he didnt have the title because the bank has it. But it didnt affect the car, besides me having to wait a week to get the title so I can register it.

Congrats on the new car man. Looks a lot better than my 83 Oldsmobile cutlass I had when I was your age back in 03. Enjoy!
