For Sale….what?!

10/02/2013

Ya, crazy huh? Stick with me here.

So in February, I reluctantly sold my 2008 STi to a great guy in DC. He loves the car, as did I. He’s buying a house in the burbs, and his commute to work will be around 100 miles a day. So, while he doesn’t want to, he has to sell it.

This is where I re-enter the picture. Ever since I sold the car I regretted it. I put a TON of hard work and money into building the car exactly how I wanted it, and now it’s for sale…and I want it back. As much as I think the FXT is a rare, beautiful and gorgeous specimen of a Subaru, the hassle of building engines and swapping transmissions is less appealing than buying the work I had done right before.

This means the FXT is for sale. I have 3 interested parties already, but, I thought I’d put this out there for everyone who has expressed some bro love for this car. If you want it, act quickly. Send me an email if interested!

I paid $19.5 for it, and have since added about $1500 in parts, labor + tunes. Selling for $19k firm. Tucson, AZ pickup, or I can ship at buyers expense.
