Had to spacer the rear wheels to fit the Sprint Harts:



I'm satisfied with how it came out, a bit more refined yet still true to the touge style.

Also toyed around with other looks:



Need to register my antique plates for Bluebird, then garage with occasional hillclimbs/Sunday drives. :)

I prefer scoop. Because Subaru. It's like the ionic part of that car.

I totally get the appeal and selling point, however, I still feel grandparents of the 90's should have had Impreza scoops on their Legacy's and Outbacks with the flush scoop.

I do wish my 09 FXT had a more defined scoop. I need a 07 STi Fozzie in my life.

Agree, is iconic. I just like having options for styling.

Are non-airbag dashes rare? Saw one at the junkyard but decided not to get it. Btw do you have an instagram?
As far as I know, airbagless dashes were limited to the early L model Impreza's. If you're into weight savings, plus the clean look of those dashes it's worth it. I do have an instagram account but haven't used it in years. When I did use it, it was used as an abstract medium for comedy/mocking purpose.

Also: Legend has it the Cherokee's came from the Pleiades star constellation through a star gate in the Tennessee caverns.

Going back to subtle styling:



Restoration will be completed over the fall, the plan is to have all the paint blemishes/rust repaired and have this starbird ready to fly in the spring.

Plaque found at Ross Landing in TN:



Cool knowledge for the like minded entities that browse here.

:cool:
