This thread is dedicated to Uno my very first Subaru which I have owned for twenty years now. I am the sole owner of this car. I purchased this car in 1994 at Camp Subaru in Spokane Washington. Up till that point I had driven used cars. The original purchase price was approximately $11K. This was quite a lot of money for me at the time as I only made $14/hr part time.
Uno is a 1993 Subaru Loyale Sedan, FWD with the Single Point Fuel Injection (SPFI) EA82 engine that makes about 90HP at the crank shaft. It has power windows, power locks, power seat belts and air conditioning. I got a good deal on this car because it was last year's model when I bought it in August 1994. I have owned it for 20 years now and it has never left me stranded. How many other cars can you say that about?
I have been on USMB since 2005 and never really thought to start a "build" thread as my car is mostly stock. After about 19 years I thought about the newer cars and what I might like about them. The main things were electronic so I added them to Uno.
Uno has remote key-less entry with trunk pop and soon to be enabled, remote start. Uno also has a backup camera and reverse distance indicator to tell me if I am about to back into anything. There isn't really anything else that makes me envy newer cars. Uno fits me perfectly and I enjoy driving it.
I am in the process of refreshing Uno for a twenty year anniversary trip from Bremerton Wa to Baltimore MD and back. I will visit a very special friend who played a key role in my adoption of Uno as well as in my life and I can't wait to get Uno back together again so I can once again drive it. People make comments about me and "my old Subaru" but I pay them no attention. This car is like a comfortable pair of shoes or comfort food. There will probably be others, but this car is my first and will always be special to me.
This pretty much sums up how I feel about this car:
