Goal: Find an inexpensive, rust-free, 1st generation 2.5RS to use as a stock class SCCA RallyCross car. This will replace the rusty, but mechanically sound, '03 Impreza Outback Sport that my wife and I have been RallyCrossing for the past 4-years. After losing the brakes in an event this fall and having to repair the four rusted brake lines entering the junction block in front of the right-rear wheel and getting up close and personal with all of the rust underneath this former Minnesota car I figured that we needed to find a rust free car before the suspension ripped out of the current one. I settled on the first gen 2.5 because it was similar to the car we were running and we could use the current car for a spare engine, etc. plus it was lighter than the current car and would handle better.
