I am going down there for a work trial type thing for the next 2 weeks and may have a great opportunity to move there. One of the first things I looked at on craigslist was subies for sale and only 3 came up. So Im wondering if there are any other subaru owners in or near San Angelo with any useful info on this city or anything interesting worth mentioning. I can pretty much guarantee Im gonna be the only one to have a lifted 83 gl coupe and am I gonna have a hard time finding parts if I need them locally. Coming from the northwest this is a totally different place than I am used to.

You are definitely in for some 'culture shock'.

Yep my brotha, it's definitely different than Portland / Vancouver. I finally saw a late 80's GL wagon today. probably an 87. First I've seen! I still think my 85 brat might be the oldest in town! And probably the only Brat! Check out the Texas group - http://ultimatesubar....php?groupid=20. Not a lot of action there, but there's a several of us.

one possible problem, if you are accustomed to having a multitude of BLM/forest service roads to wheel on - uh, not much federal land in Texas. Not to say that San Angelenos woun't have a coupla spots nearby to offroad - but it's likely private property.

but I'm not from there so, maybe you'll get connected with a resident from the area.

Ya I figured not very many muddy trails in TX lol. Hopefully I can at least find a couple places outside of town to at least get offroad, of course without getting in trouble:brow:. Ive heard pretty good things about San Angelo so Im goin down there this friday for a lil over a week to see if its somwhere I would like to live and the kind of work that will benefit my future. Of course if things work out I will miss the northwest after being here for 21 years, but I sure wont complain about all the sunshine. Thanks for the info guys.

Yeah there is not much of a subaru scene down here but do you really want to be a part of a scene? Or would you rather start the scene? Honestly I get way more enjoyment out of having people go wtf is that!? than seing a bunch of other cars just like mine sitting in a parking lot. Im sure there are plenty of off road people down there if thats what your into...just don't expect them to know what a brat is :P. Haha true story I went into the nearest Subaru dealership and tried to order some parts for my brat and even at a Subaru dealership, no one there in the parts department or the shop had any idea what a brat was!

Wow thats crazy lol. I get alot of people asking me up here in the NW what kind of car I have. I know down there nobody will know my lifted 83 coupe is a Subaru. Youve got a good point about starting a scene.
And the heat wasnt too bad, of course its pretty hot but its something I can get used to.

So I made it down here to Texas on Thursday. It took us three days and 1860 miles from Vancouver wa. to San Angelo. Not too bad for having the suby on a trailer behind the u haul. It was awesome goin through Utah its just too bad I didnt have time to take it off the trailer in Moab especially since I know the coupes probly never gonna be there again. But it feels good to finally be here in Texas. I sure am gonna miss the northwest but im lovin the sunshine.
