The Story of how Peasant Wagon came to be
FEEL TRIP AND STORY AHEAD , SKIP FOR EJ207 AND WAGON CONTENT.
I can really blame my father for all this , When I was 19/20 he got a 2003 Wrx with a salvage title. Little did we know the car was a hack job but at the time it was fun.
It looks nice , But it got T boned hard on the drivers side and the frame rails showed it. It was rebuilt by a shady shop somewhere in Macomb , Michigan. Michigan people will know exactly who I am talking about.
Abused car for most of its life and you end with this. My friend Sean and I were taking it up to Michigan State to visit his girlfriend and her friends. I rolled onto boost in second gear and hear a horrible noise. Stupid me thought it was an oil line when we really threw a rod right out of the case halves and it made a nice hole under the intercooler.
We were done with that car , My father worked out a deal with 31 Motorsports for a car he picked up with a clean title and it just needed a new motor. He built us a motor and we were on our way with Rally Car 2.0. That motor is still running great today after 65,000 miles, Transmission just got rebuilt after 170,000 miles and one Regional RallyX championship.
We did TSD Rally with it and once bounced it off a tree then used two jacks to position the damaged control arm in a place where we could get a spare wheel on it. Then my father drove that car home 250 miles while I passed out in the back seat to keep weight off the front end ( I love you dad ).
Then it got rallied some more, My brother is a much better driver than my father or myself. He won a regional RallyX championship with a stock Wrx in Prepared class with just K Sport Gravel coilovers , Hawk Pads and Hankook Rally tires
After all those adventures I bought a blown up 2005 CGM STi , I loved the car but I was a stupid 21 year old idiot at the time. I did not realize how expensive these cars would be and my dreams of building a fast STi did not ever happen. I sold the car because I realized how dumb it was to be then 22 and paying $2200 a year for insurance along with a car payment as well.
I loved the car , It was an absolute blast to drive.
Rebuilt EJ257 with CP Pistons and Manley rods
RCE Tarmac 2 Coilovers
Direzza Star Specs
I learned how to tow the car driving back to Michigan from Peoria !
Also you see a subaru in its natural environment !
My brother always is there to tell me things I am doing are dumb or that he hates car kids.
He is one of the best drivers I know and has won a Regional RallyX championship with a basically stock 2002 Wrx and Rally tires.
