Today we present the story of Justin Mathews and his 06 WRX!
“Well let’s see…..Name is Justin Mathews and I live on the panhandle of Florida. I bought the car brand new June 2006 as a birthday present to myself. I have always been a car nut, and I can blame my dad and my grandfather due to them being car nuts as well. I have owned various cars ranging from old school muscle to import and driven all sorts of powertrain with the exception of all wheel drive. I went to poke around at multiple dealers looking for a new car to give my 95 Honda Prelude a rest. Well, long story short I test drove a 2006 STi and was immediately in love. I came back the following week and pulled into the dealer right behind the delivery truck and picked one out before I walked in.
Over the first few years of owning the Subaru I really missed auto cross but really wanted to step up to a bigger game. So I began building the car to really perform on tracks local to me, Road Atlanta and Barbers. So now the car sits mostly track ready but still completely functional as it is daily driven and will be until I buy another Subaru (turbo 5-speed Subaru Baja) to drive to work.
This Subaru will be a one owner car until the day I die….unless I import a JDM STi spec-c type RA-R in Yellow (my dream Subaru).“
