Childhood nostalgia got to me. And I’ve wanted a Subie for years. Of course, I promptly found the only used GC8 exhaust in Missouri and swapped out the rusty factory pipe.

So far, I think I’m in love. Everything in this car just feels right. Surprisingly it’s solid as can be, given age and previous lack of maintenance. Parts list is already growing and all the other vehicles have temporarily been thrown to the back burner. Inner Colin McRae here I come!
