    I hope to make as many events as I can in 2008.  I am sure there are a couple people on here I still know, but why not re-introduce myself in typical n00b fashion.

     My name is Mike, I live in Eureka, MO.  I bought my third Subaru earlier this year...actually it was an impulse buy (it was too good to pass up).  I have owned an '02 wrx, '95 m3, '05 sti, and '05 vette.  Those were my only fun cars.

     Here is my current project, I hope to have completed by the 18th of this month:

    Car - 2003 wrx:
