Don't worry guys, the flesh is cooking in the hot sunlight as we speak. It is almost ripe for the picking. :grin:

I'm sorry. Those cars are hard to find here in the JY's and I have been slow on the uptake in the past. Didn't mean to look so vultureish. Please forgive and I hope you guys have had a nice laugh on me.

Cut the roof off... make a roadster/pickup out of it.


That is unusual damage... I concur the sentiment to 'roadster' it!

Inspiration from another thread:

Can someone say Jurassic Park style! Probably one of the best Outbacks I've seen.

It's been a little over a year since I destroyed my Outback. Just one final commemoration so that it will live on in everybodys memories as the awesomely perfect Outback that it was.

Glad you or no one else got hurt. Thoughts of cutting off the top to create a roadster may have some merrit. Someone posted a wagon, with the roof cut off behind the driver to create sort of a pick up truck. A roll bar could be fabricated at the B pillar, and roof sheet metal brought back to connect to the roll bar. Might work out great! When you have a lemon, turn it into lemon ade

So sad for the Outback, but the Most important thing is that You're Alright, Glad to read that you was able to Walk away, right after That.

You can see this event as an opportunity, Because that Outback could became a Beautiful Project car: Imagine it as a Pick up, or even as Donor car to do the "EJ Swap" over an Old School EA Subie...

There could be somehow 'endless' project posibilities, but the Good thing is that you're OK.

Kind Regards.


can anyone read this?

Ouch btw.

The default forum style used to have a dark grey background. 2.7 Loyale used to post with this colour font and thus it's hard to read now. I highlight it to read it, much easier ;) He's since changed his font colour too!

As for the roll over, I don't know why people are disgusted at the damage - that stands well in my book - if it didn't move then the momentum that the vehicle has would be fully transferred to the occupants thus throwing them around with the potential for real injury. Try doing that in an L series and see who comes off the worst...

Best of luck on the replacement/build - which ever route you decide to go down ;)

Cheers

Yeah the nature of the accident was especially rough on the roof because it rolled down an embankment and LANDED on that corner. I had also recently healed up from a broken left collar bone, felt like I had shin-splints in it for a few weeks after that (seatbelt directly over that shoulder).

And the car's long gone, I only had it a couple months after I rolled it. The motor had 250,000 on it and now resides in my sisters Legacy. She has since put 24,000 miles on it. Darn good engines them EJ22s...

I just figured out that this original post was 11/11, over a year ago. Upon my first read, I thought this was a new post. Now, I see the car is long gone, but the motor lives on in your sister's Leggie. I agree the EJ22 is a darn good engine. There has not been a more reliable Subie engine built since the EJ22. I have a 95 EJ22 transplanted into my 98 OBW with 50K miles. I figure the motor will last another 150K miles.
