If you're like me, you have a fond memory of the original Subaru Impreza WRX that was sold in North America, which came out back in 2002. Americans had clamored for a high-performance version of the Impreza for years, and we were all annoyed that Subaru was selling it overseas -- and then, finally, it arrived.

Just as soon as WRXs arrived, people started to modify them -- and these days, it's nearly impossible to find a nice early WRX that was representative of that era in Japanese performance cars. But this particular example is a very, very nice one. It's a blue 2004 WRX wagon with a manual transmission, and it looks totally unmodified and untouched -- and it's traveled just 37,700 miles from new.

That's amazing, and it's even more amazing to see this WRX's time capsule status. The exterior and interior are both in great shape, and this WRX ticks all the boxes, between the color, the body style and the transmission. The only drawback is the fact that it's not a 2002 or 2003 model, meaning it misses the original "bugeye" headlights that were iconic in this era of WRX when it first came out.

Still, this WRX is impressive to see, especially in this condition -- and if you vividly remember the original WRX as positively as I do, here's your chance to get into what surely must be one of the nicest examples left. It's offered by Road Ready Used Cars in Connecticut for $16,000.
