Anybody else have one? I'm amazed how zippy this little car is.

I'll post pics soon. Has rot in corners but still a good commuter for here with no body inspections !!! Thinking about using this car. I can see it's great on gas!!

Two door. 5 spd. Same tire size as my '78!
It's an 88.

Never had an 88, I had the both the body style before (a 4x4 wagon), and after (1992 sedan). My wagon I liked because I made good money off from it, and it was fun to drive around in bad weather. The 92 I had, I hated as it was neglected before I owned it, and had many engine issues that I had to sort out :Flame:

Both were pretty fun little cars, and got great milage. It should treat you well as along as it has been taken care of!

Good condition excepting the rot spots and a light sideswipe.

The girlfriend has a '96 as a spare commuter car, still a 1.5L. It has 254k and averages 40mpg. I'm amazed at the build quality. Apparently this particular car took three girls through high school and a son through college yet has hardly any squeaks/rattles and nothing is broken.

It's kind of sad how slow non-turbo Subaru's are compared to these little turds, but 100ft lbs of torque and 2000lbs isn't too shabby.

Light sideswipe this side , plus rot :

Fenders are cheap enough. Wheels I hit quick with a Rustoleum product.
