I sold my bolt on and cammed trans am about 6 months ago. Sometimes I really miss it. Yet, im happy that i now get 20+ mpg and i have awd and a turbo! I dont know whether i'm going to go back to domestic yet. Who knows! Anyways I got a WRX that was stock and i've done quite a few thing to it so far, it makes it fun. But here she is.

There's no way I would have sold a transam and bought one of those. Seems like a downgrade to me...

For a DD I'm sure it is a lot of fun, I've always liked the WRX. That thing is probably going t o be a blast in the winter. I bet it is quick though - have fun with it!

It just wouldn't be enough for me during the warm months though. Perfect combo would be the summer car I've got right now and one of those for a DD!

if I was going to buy a awd car and wanted to have fun with it, I would go with a Evo 8 hands down.

I would rather drive a beater as my DD and hold on to the LS1

I can't do an AWD car, is just no fun.. no drama. Stab the throttle and then if the clutch doesn't slip or it doesn't bog it will accelerate quickly but they fall off quickly as the driveline loss takes over.

RWD You Stab the throttle the tires scream and struggle for grip and the car squirms around a bit and feather the throttle and steer to keep it straight as the chassis catches up to the tires and starts to really pull and keeps pulling. I just love it!

Its not as economical as people think to buy a replacement car that gets better mileage. I was looking into replacing my Z28 for a car better on gas but going from my 15mpg yearly average in my Z28 to one that gets 20-25mpg yearly average would only save around $500-1000 a year. not worth it at all to me because I'd have a whole new car to learn and Mod and probably have a small loan on top of that to pay off for the new more gas friendly car.

i sold my ta for a built evo 8 and to be honest the evo was way more fun to drive and much faster, 475awhp. but it only lasted a summer and i had to rebuild the motor, built it to 617awhp and sold it cuz it wasnt reliable in anyway. now im getting another trans am and driving my beater in the winter. subarus are nice cars tho guys, dont bash the guy cuz he was being practical lol

MPG ratings on the two are about the same, I would bet on the T/A getting more on the highway than an AWD car though. WRXs are cool winter DDs, but I wouldn't have replaced an LS1 F-body with one. An STI or Evo would be different, but a WRX seems like a big downgrade to me.

so many haters still.

The Fbody is not the only cool car on the planet, that WRX is cool and fun and can be driven all year round.

I'd rock one for a DD for sure if they didn't have such a high used market.

Huh - wonder why they demand a premium in the used market? People like them!

Both cars are cool in their own right and do different things well.

tough crowd lol... I don't think owning one makes you gay, but trading in your trans am for one does...

For a 4 cylinder turbo they get horrible gas mileage imo.
