Hello all.

Please don't freak out over my username and avi, though I am a big muscle car fan ( mopar is specific) , my boyfriend is a big Subaru fan and owner of a '92 Legacy Sport and an '05 Legacy GT.

Not to worry, he has converted me into an Subie enthusiast. I am here to learn more about Subaru's and hopefully, be able to help him with his.

I look forward to getting to know you guys & girls and hope you welcome me w/ open arms!

Do you remember a time, going down the freeway at 55, windows down in your car, listening to hard rock, when a Honda with a fart can comes by Tbbbbbbbtttttthhhh and flies passed you doing 60 and looks back at you... You think to yourself, hmm I shouldnt do this... but impulse takes over and you floor it, at once you see the gas needle drop, you hear the secondaries open up and sink into your seat as you pass the Honda like it was standing still..

Ahh Honda hunting :) I miss my Skylark lol. If youve done this then youre okay in my book :) :banana: if not, you should try it... legally of course :rolleyes:

Good that youre into Scoobs too though, I see no problem with loving Scoobs and muscle cars..

Hey, I'm another Mopar and Subaru fan. I have two 2nd gen Legacy wagons, both with the bullet proof 2.2, I have a '98 Dodge Ram quad cab 4x4, and my baby is my '56 Chrysler Imperial Coupe for which I'm building a 354 cubic inch Hemi.

Thats awesome! Our 92 is a 2.2 turbo, I hear they are great engines! :) I drive an 06 Charger, but the 92 will be my winter car this year. lol

Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I got attacked like nobody's business when I introduced myself on another Legacy forum.

And I have blown by my share of Civics. :D

Welcome to the forum!

My daily driver and current project is my '91 Subaru Loyale.

However, my "other" project is my 1973 Plymouth Gold Duster.

My wife's grandmother was the original owner, and as as much as I like muscle cars, this one is destined to remain stock, slant six, A/C, and all. :)

Past projects, I briefly owned and played with a 1990 Dodge turbo caravan :lol: , and as a teenager my father, older brothers and myself built and restored classic Mustangs. When I was 17 I had a 1966 fastback w/ a 289 "K code" hi-po and 4 speed toploader that was WAY too much car for a high schooler. Wish I still had that one.

Anyway, no need to worry, it's all good. Best Subaru forum on the net!

yeah, have to agree - they kind of missed the mark with the newer charger - but nailed it on the Challenger!

and dont worry too much about the mopar thing - we gat all kinds around here! (including datsun & honda fans) :grin: the biggest thing is that you love Subaru's - as long as you have that, all is good.

I'd love to get a new challenger, and then change the front to be more like a 'cuda. that'd be sweet!
I have a Dodge truck, an S-10 blazer, a 74 bronco, and 2 1970 mustang projects. and a couple subarus too!:banana:

I agree, but I would do it in a 74 super beetle. Now when I feel the need to go fast I jump on the bike. I actually have been enjoying my slow car.

Welcome to the forum, I have been enjoying myself here the last month since I got my soob.
