Hi everyone, we both retired a couple years ago and have been doing that "travel the USA thing". We will also be relocating to Arizona next month. Of course years ago I planned to keep it no matter what but now it mostly sits unused. I don't have to sell but why continue to pay for tags, insurance and upkeep if my interests are now only to travel. Imagine.. the RS has only been driven 241 miles since February 2019. Figure it's time for someone else to care for her.

Anyways, she is a Rally Blue Pearl Coupe purchased new in San Diego September 1997 and still has original drivetrain. Car has never left SoCal area. Current original mileage is only 100241 miles.
-DOHC Heads rebuilt( instead of attempting to reshim dohc valves with engine in car). All gaskets, seals, water pump, belts and clutch replaced. Note: crank and pistons specs were excellent and have never been removed from block!!
-Garage kept for 21 years, parked outside at work and now sits in driveway. NO RUST ANYWHERE!!
-Factory interior except for Subaru MOMO steering wheel, Kartboy SS Kit, disconnected APEXi SAFC, aftermarket plush molded carpet, Subaru Gauge Pack drain plug temp sensor leaks so disconnected and install regular drain plug.

-Factory STI cat-back exhaust. K&N panel filter. Full SYNTHETIC OILS.
-Magnacor Silicone Plug Wires. Homemade grounding kit (it really works!). Bypassed throttle body heater.
