you can e-mail them to me, or I can grab them if someone else posts them. I would like to add them to the ultimatesubaru.org site either way if that's okay....

thanks,
Mick

Mick, they are on their way, 8 e-mails with pictures, one with contact info. I'll be leaving soon for the rally, and won't be back till Sunday evening late. Let me know if you get these.

Look at the heads they were using on the rally engine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Edit*: Anyway, not all the pics seem to work. I managed to download quite a few before they started acting up. Did I break anything???

Those pics are awesome. Now we know the EA81 4wd NA was the first RX, altho it was JDM only. Its to bad I wasnt into Subaru's when I was in Japan with the USN. But then it would have been all 1st Gen stuff. I know I saw lots of the 360's there, Vans and Trucks but not many cars.

The only 'vintage' Subaru I've seen in Japan so far, was a 88 Leone Stationwagon. 1.8L, 2WD, white with black bumpers...

So I'm not all that excited about the old(er) Subaru's here. I want to find some adresses of 'nostalgic hero' dealers so I can see an 1300G in the flesh.

BTW, I 'read' somewhere on a Japanese site that Subaru started development of the 4WD system on the 1300G and also did initial testing on that car. Interesting, interesting... That would be an awsome car to have!

I think I've got a pic of one. It is still called the RX. It was a 1300cc motor, twin carb, single inlet port, dual exhuast ports (think VW - one facing forward), extractors part time 4x4, 3.7 diff LSD rear, and wait for it..... 96hp from factory. It would have been a WILD toy for it's time!!!

Yea, I've seen a picture of that somewhere, but don't think it was in your photos Rudy. I was wondering about if it was an RX, how can the EA81 derived RX be considered the first gen, and the EA82 version a gen two??

The first time they used 'RX' was on the EA81 cars. Before that they used G-Sport and GSR on sporty models.

No Marnix, you are not right, I'll try to find the picture, but there was a car in the mid 70's that had 4WD and looked very agressive, that car was badged as a RX.

It's starts to dawn now... Didn't I send a picture of a '74 2-door that was called RX?

Yep, that's the guy!!!! No need to apologies, we can be right all the time (well except for me :lol: ). So, was that a mis-titled photo, or was it really called an RX??

Maybe that '70s RX was a concept car, and they didn't come out with a production version until the EA81 model??

Well, I'm counting this one (the 74) as the first and the 1998 Impreza RX as the last. Maybe both were one off creations, but the both are identified as RXs.
