2005 Subaru Impreza WRX - Chris Siberry

I had no prior knowledge about Subarus, so when I purchased my car it quickly became a learning experience.

Chris Says Residing in Manahawkin, NJ, I work as a mechanic at RDN Automotive, a small shop that’s one town over in Barnegat. I don’t really have a set schedule and the work environment is very laid back, but we’re still able to accomplish lots of quality work. When I set out on my search to find a car, I originally wanted a truck, but soon realized that it would be a waste of gas and money to get a truck that wouldn’t even see mud, due to lack of free time. I started to look for cars and came across the Subaru WRX. I had no prior knowledge about Subarus, so when I purchased my car it quickly became a learning experience. Over the past two years of owning my car, I’ve become quite the expert on Subarus and I’m always willing to share that knowledge with anyone who is interested. Throughout those years, I also began modding my car, starting with the basic intake, exhaust and tune, but quickly became power hungry and upgraded the turbo, fuel system and had my car pro tuned. That is where I am currently at today, and I am satisfied with the power I’m making, it is a very fun daily driver. All of my photos are taken by my good friend Tyler Sladen, who is an amazingly skilled photographer and never ceases to amaze me with the outcome of his work.

We Say You can’t go wrong with a clean Subaru. Chris’s car is nice because it’s extremely subtle, functional and not outlandish or crazy. We like cars that can be driven hard and then driven to go get the groceries.
