Speaking of which that was a Rescue... It was brought to VT by a collage student from CA and left for dead when the "transmission went bad" $250 for the car and some shifter bushings later it was driving around.
This was it back then.
And after some love

My 2nd SVX.
The 93 Imp I picked up. This was the most work I've put into a car yet to get it back on the road.
One of the EA81 coupes I had, no before pics tho.
89 XT S/R 4WD.
My first Brat, a 85.
The project I'm working on now is a 2002 Fozz. Hit in the front enought that it needed another core support, hood, bumper lights, etc.
Before (Bumper and lights removed by PO, but you can see the damaged core support).
New core support
Put back together
Right now it has a 98 hood, lights and bumper on it. But it will be getting replaced with 02 stuff soon.

Sitting in a backyard in east Seattle for a few years, it was pretty ugly. Qman helped me get it home and he was embarrassed to have it on his trailer.
It cleaned up nicely and my late wife drove it for 4yrs.

Not going to lift this one. This will be either a complete resto or a rallyx, haven't decided yet.

It feels nice to resurrect an old machine that would have been crushed otherwise.

Front end bashed in, reeking of pot and wet dog, oversized tires that were bald and rubbing the fenders, no stereo, headlights pointed to the ground, cracked windshield, blown suspension, and piston slap up the wazoo...
Frankenmotor, WRX/STi suspension, WRX interior, WRX rims, UEL to Invidia knockoff exhaust, factory Yakima rack, new headlights/fogs/corners, LED lighting, WRX underseat sub, and plenty more.

Hmmm...... looks like an vintage subaru wagon that needs rescuing, before it gets used for target practice like this poor old vw bus.
Posted 17 January 2013 - 09:31 AM
The car is somewhere in Arizona, happy hunting!
Here is a link to the thread. You could probably email the guy who posted this on the samba to get an exact location of the car. (pg. 600) from the samba.
PS the samba vw bus hunting thread was my inspiration for starting a subaru search and rescue thread on this web site.
Keep searching...they are out there

Hi! I found an old 1980 1.6 SRX. I do not have the before pictures because the car was awful. It was an ugly puke-green color.... the interior was in horrible shape, but on the positive side.... the body was solid without any rust. So far, I have repainted the car, customized the interior to a more classic look, rebuilt the motor, changed the clutch, breaks and tuned the dual carbs. As of now the car is running better than new!
That is a very nice car. I love everything about it, very nicely done. Love the round headlights too :slobber: If only we had gotten stuff like that...
I picked this up today, not sure what i'm going to do with it, but I couldn't say no for $200. It is very rusty (as in it has no floors) and the rear shock tower is broken/rusted into the bed.
