You could trade it (plus some cash of course) for a WRX. They run pretty good.Or a supercharged mini cooper. They are pretty snappy too.I like both. Having driven many of them, I would say the wrx would be hard to beat, I like the euro feel and look of of the mini though, so it would be tough for me to choose.Having replaced pistons and valves in a few WRX motors due to valves letting go I would opt for the Mini. Dont know if there is a class for them in drag racing but if so, you may win for lack of competition.
Otherwise getan 80 s malibu wagon and build it to the hilt, keep the subie for parts fetchin like was said here ealier.
