the car

12/03/2012

I purchased this car from a fellow IWSTI member from Los Angeles, CA.  Living in AZ, it was an easy commute to fly out to Ontario Airport, meet up with Vic and complete the transaction.  I then drove the 8hr+ commute back to AZ and even got 27mpg!  An improvement from the WRX that only ever saw 23mpg on the freeway.
