Welcome to WRX.anastrophe.com.

A silly ode to my car, a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX sedan. No significance, other than that it was the first 'brand new' car I'd ever purchased (I was 41), and, it is a very cool car. My previous car, for the past thirteen years, was my trusty Subaru GL 4WD wagon. It had about 212,000 miles on it when I gave it to my brother in law about a year after getting the WRX. It is still in service.

I ordered my WRX on 27mar01, the vehicle was built during apr01, and I took delivery into my hot little hands on 12may01. Subaru is only producing about 10,000 to 12,000 WRX's for the United States market that first year.

A few of the specs for this 'stealth' performance car:
4 cylinder horizontally opposed engine ('boxer')
Dual overhead cam
16 valves
Intercooled Turbo
Horsepower: 227 @ 6K RPM
Torque: 217 Ft-Lbs @ 4K RPM
All Wheel Drive:
Viscous coupling locking center diff
Viscous limited slip rear diff
Curb Weight: 3095lbs (13.6lbs per horsepower)

Following are a few pics, snapped the day after I got the car...
