Re: HELLO :)

i think you are going to be saving for a long time mate. i really dont think you will get insured at 17 to drive a scoob, well you may do but it will prob cost you as much as the car in the 1st place, if you want a scoob dont get 1 with a turbo on just yet. i may be wrong tho

Hi.

When you find a job. Save up and pass your driving test and you still want a sporty Impreza. I would recommend the UK 1997 4 door 2 litre Sport normally aspirated Impreza.

Good luck with the insurance.

Go to your local Subaru Garage...or independant specialist... or sports car dealers..... ask for a job as Saturday boy, car cleaner, go for, helper and you will learn as you earn.... I think the Health and Safety laws may preclude you from certain tasks until you are 16 though.... why not go in person and ask

You could even volunteer to work on no pay for a trial period ??

Good luck and I hope you keep the faith with the Scooby's

If you live in the US the UK 2 litre Sport normally aspirated will be no good.





Another very nice normally aspirated Impreza! "US" GC8 2.5 RS.
