 Are you asking about the black one? 


The AMC Gremlin in the background makes me think this was taken in the US. lt looks like a mid-70's Leone. Of course back then, we just called them Subaru GL or DL ... 1974 or 1975 maybe?

Well, I'm no expert in this, but I think they made 3 different 2-door Subarus back then, that were all slightly different. But, the front is the give away to me or maybe I'm just drunk... :D

I had a chance (a chance!) to grab one a few years back for stupid cheap, up in Monument Colorado. Guy had to sell several of his vehicles to pay bills after the economy fell. I think he was asking $1200 for a '78 coupe in good, running condition; said it was one of his daily drivers. Sadly, I couldn't scrape the cash together quick enough  :(

The one that got away.... I have a few dozen of those! The last one was a 1978 Wagon here in Phoenix. I looked at it, came home to see about cash, called him right back and he sold it. He was asking less than $1500 with no rust, orig. paint and a gorgeous interior and new tires!!! So pissed at myself for losing out on that one.

Street car? Don't all cars start in this world as a street car?  :) It would make a terrific addition to your collection.

There's a really nice all black coupe on Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs, CO. Civilian DOD worker down by the rail yard. Tried tracking him down before I retired and [temporarily!] moved to Florida, with no luck. Thing is *mint*.
