What'd you drive before?

I've seen quite a few people that have gotten or are looking at the iM have had xB's prior. I was wondering what everyone was/is driving and why you made the switch?

Personally, I have a 2005 xB and I am looking because it has a couple problems, some maintenance due, just over 200k on the odometer and I am ready for a change.

I'm a bit of a gear head... before my XB I had a 99 Eclipse GS-T and before that was a 98 Neon R/T but here's pics of my previous vehicles... after the 2005 XB I owned 3 different Subaru WRX models:







The Alfa Romeo was a barn find I restored and sold to fund a motor build on Subaru number 2

love that subi sedan, still till this day I want one even if it's just the WRX and not an STi, but of course the STi is where it's at!

Did you end up doing any modifications to your WRX STi?

All of them were modified... the STi I had to 350whp before I sold it, and decided to go back to a WRX 2.0L for reliability reasons. The EJ257 is a **** motor... google "STi ringland"

I love subies, especially the Impreza hatches.

Let's see some more of your previous/current vehicles.

Still better than nothing, some folks end up with just that... nothing.

But at times not having it can be good as cars can get costly.

My very first car was a '92 Mercury Grand Marquis. All red interior: seats, dash, carpets. Not easy on gas, but tons of fun to drive.

Those are awesome but that's because i'm a gear head and love RWD V8's, even more so when its a chassis like that which has a ton of cheap replacement parts used or new, especially the generation after.

That's one of those boats of a car. You can feel the waves when you go over every speed bump.
