My wife and I bought our first Subaru, an '06 Forester, the day after we got engaged.  That car took us everywhere.  We've since picked up a 2011 Outback, but this is my pride and joy:  my sweet little get around...an 84 GL, purchased from the original owner with only 72,000 miles.  The owner told me it had never spent a night outside.  Unfortunately, sometimes all that garaging isn't so great for a car either...they need to be driven.  It ran great for a few years, but developed some carb issues (common, right?).  Right now, it's with the mechanic for head gaskets and a Weber conversion.  I can't wait to get it back.  It's the 2wd model, but with studded snow tires, I always make it home up our 1/4 mile driveway at 9000 feet in the Colorado foothills.  I'm not really sure how anyone lives in Colorado without a Subaru.  I would love to keep it as the summer driver and match it with a 4wd...someday!~

That's a gorgeous little Subaru, even if it is only 2wd.

It could be both swap in the rear drive train (brakes, hubs, diff, drive line, axels, ect), transmission(4 or 5 speed), flywheel/clutch, and a piece of interior plus a hole in floor for 4wd shifter then you got your self a 4wd subaru wagon.
