I recently took a trip down memory lane and found pictures of my WRX wagon I owned from 2004 to 2008. This was by far one of the best cars I have owned. I could take the family on a trip with room for luggage or hang out with the tuner crowd. It was at home at the autocross course, drag strip, or local grocery store parking lot. This was the ultimate all around car.
I’m not sure if it was the all wheel drive or the turbocharged flat four cylinder that made this car so fun to drive, but it was a blast. I had a lot of fun upgrading the car as it responded well to modifications.
The car was rated at 227 horsepower at the crankshaft from the factory. After upgrades were completed it was dyno tested at 249 horsepower to the wheels and ran the quarter mile in 12.6 seconds with a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds. It was fun to drive in all four seasons!
