Representing Old School last friday (semi-rant)

most of the rides were 2002-2003 WRX's. there were a few 2004-2005 sti's.
One guy showed up in his 2000 RS. Overall fairly interesting time. Sorta got bored after a while listening to them yap about BOV and Rota wheels and blah blah blah....
It's not so interesting when you just dump money into your ride to make it look/perform better. I would rather get my hands dirty and do it myself the old shade-tree mechanic way.
That's why I am looking forward to WCSS6. Hang w/some old school folks that actually know how to work on their rides.

they were cool cats there. but I was glad I did not pay for food as I hear they ran out real early. I almost drove back up in my wagon after I got home just for fun.

I guess the funniest thing is hearing that they spend enough money on just Rims and tires to really deck out my BRAT. Like 700 bucks for rims. 700 bucks for my BRAT would get me a lot more. But hey, if you have the money to throw around why not.
I think that's the biggest difference between old school and new school. Old School prides itself in DIY mods and PAP finds. New School prides itself in who tuned their car and how many name brand go-fast parts they can buy.
Plan to go back this friday.

A long time ago...when I was just a pup...my parents owened a 88 GL wagon...thought it was the shiznit...had lots of fun in it...
That was my first Soob... Mom and Dads old 88 GL Wagon... Maroon! I loved it. I got forced off the road once by some blind driver and tacoed a rim goin over the sidewalk at 50 mph. Best thing to happen to that car. I had to get a new rim so I went to the yard. And there they were SHINY CHROME American Racing Mags. $100 for the set. That car was spottless from that day foreward. Even when I went out mudding it was "Blinging" again before the sun went down. Thats the car that made me a believer. Had her airborn god only knows how many times. I high centered it a few times though and afterwards could feel the floorboard separate behind the front seats when I took off, then slide back together when I came to a stop. It was time to sell her. Offed it to a friend for $700 with a crumpled rear pannel and tail light (got in a fight with a hydrant) (The hydrant won that round) and 247,000 miles on the original engine and trans. He learned how to drive a stick in it and killed the tranny shortly after.
Now I'm even older-school with the 83 GL wag. And I couldnt be Happier. Cant wait to show it off at WCSS6
