So a few months ago i sold my 97 OBS to Mead, seen here: http://www.rs25.com/forums/f145/t151957-meads-gf8-20g-swap-third-times-charm.html i missed it a lot but was glad it was going to a good home. Then i picked up a 88 crx hf for pizza delivery which was pretty fun and got about 45 mpg but it had no personality. i bought it for 1500 put new balljoints, front struts, and tires on it then rear ended an suv, so i sold it for 2100 and put that behind me :lol: I guess what hit me was that i really missed all the people around here and the pnw. everyone of you guys are so chill and i just missed talking to everyone about subies and giving/getting compliments all the time.

in short you guys are awesome and i love GC/GF subarus :D

anyway today i picked up this 94 wagon for 1500 big ones

just a few of the awesome features included:

-super fucking clean interior
-175k miles and puurs like a kitten having its belly rubbed
-5 speed AWD 1.8L
-new clutch 15k ago along with related parts
-GREY INTERIOR
-hill assist clutch?! (did not know they ever put these in imprezas but its actually kinda sweet haha)
-OBD1 goodness
-flat gas cap!
-MAX A/C

here are a few phone pics will update this as things change ;)

the day i got it:

so i just filled up after the first tank of 70% city 30% highway driving and i got 29.3 MPG fuck yes!! i was not driving with economy in mind, just having fun mobbing around in it so im really happy with that number.

first bump in the road... the other day after it was raining like crazy i noticed the carpet was a little damp then the next day i could see the water coming in, anyway the entire passenger side windshield seal was shot, i could literally see through it... so i took it to quality auto glass and when they removed the windshield the whole pinch weld was rusted :curse:

oh well, $300 later all is good. just wish that could have gone towards coils :unamused:
