Whats your story with your car?

Subaru

Btw, the BRZ is really growing on me, looks like the design will age better than the FRS.

Wut? Only difference is the bumper. How would that be the deciding factor that it'll age better? lol.

that commercial... this close [ ] to crying like a little bitch

but i got my first ae86 hatch from some lady who blew the motor near richmond automall, only owner. offered 800 for it but she thought i was nice and sold it for 500... didnt even want the car but the body on my mr2 was thrashed so i swapped the motor into it.

second ae86 coupe i got from an old lady who bought it new it new from downtown toyota in 1985. her son sold it to me for 1000 with a blown sr5 motor, she was in the hospital at the time and was in bad condition, i drove by the house a year later and it had been sold and about to be torn down... car has 80, 000kms on it

they both have so much sentimental value, i really want an frs or brz but im not willing to let go of my cars. maybe in 25 years when someone blows a motor lol

The name of my car also supports Darwin. Couldn't ask for anything more

prelude motor died, always wanted a big 4dr specifically either a G35 or a GS... went with the GS300. never had a white car either, so that helped narrow it down...

first GS got tboned, had so many parts ready to go, decided to get another GS, never had a v8 before, so decided on a gs430. and never had a gold car before, so asian huh... so that narrowed it down again.

now i understand the appeal of lots of torque under 3000rpm, and having a car blend in through traffic.

Speaking of Toyotas

First car: AE86 coupe with manual steering conversion and no sunroof, bought with own money from a guy in Abby for 3k with a rebuilt motor & trannie. I learned how to really drive manual with it, as I had driven a manual forklift before. Shortly after getting it, I used it to do a few delivery jobs until I wanted to focus more in university; I'm in my last year now. Since I met my girl while driving this car, it has temendous sedimental value.

Dad bought a 82 Alfa Romeo Spider when I was little, drove me to school when I was in kindergarten or sit in the doggy seat for luggage and dogs where the soft top goes cuz I was small enough. Now I drive myself to school in the same car.

I thought OP wants the story of every RSer of how they obtained their cars, haha.

So... buying a BRZ will get me a cute innocent Jap girl + a moment with my dad???
