how's everyone? i'm new to this site, but not so new to the wonderful "soobie" world. i am proud to say that i've owned 2 soobies and am very much in love with my '86 sub GL wagon, 5 spd. (maroon). this is such a cool and very informative site. alot of useful info. passes thru here. i get the impression that alot of the members here are from the north/northeast area. does anyone know if there are members in the deep south texas area? just curious! as time goes by and now that u all have inspired me in some way, shape, or form to give my soobie a makeover. i'm gonna go the baja route. i know that i'll be coming to u all for advise and ideas. thanks for making me feel welcomed. one quick question...has any of u ever gutted out (taken out the carpeting) the interior of ur soobies, and maybe just gone without it? once again thanks dudes, baggyshorts

Welcome to the board. You'll want to link up with Calebz if possible. He's a wealth of knowledge.

thanks for making me feel welcome here. i can see that alot of u guys have alot of wisdom in ur subaroos. has anyone decided to gut out their interior like taking out the carpeting and just leaving the plain metal floor, in case u go off roading or go thru a stream and water gets in? let me know and if u have pics that would be great as well. also if my air conditioning isnt worth crap and i want to get rid of the compressor totally, can i do so without it affecting the alternator or fan/pulleys? this is on a '86 subie GL wagon. thanks again. baggyshorts

I'm blushing:-p (closest thing to a blushing smilie)

Glaveston is quite a drive from here (6-7 hours or so?)

However, that 'other' board is having a statewide soob meet in Austin the last weekend of next month. I am doing everything I can to prepare teh soob for attendance.. Have yet to finalize the last step though.. Permission from the wife ;)

Welcoma aboard. Old soobs are few and far between down here.. But we're slowly filling in the gaps.
