Should I get another sube??
Posted 06 September 2003 - 07:13 PM
The owner offered to trade me straight across for a computer. I have the spare computer I can get rid of, but the problem I have is i already have a lifted wagon and a brat. I have no room to park and no money to register another car.
But I would love to hop up a EA82T and tear it around on the pavement and gravel.
Or should I sell the computer, and build a better and faster one?

I think i might do it.

I will work a deal for it -

let the computer go and gets the soob! you dont just up and get offered touring wagons all the time.
we just fixed a turbo motor with a bad gasket, it started right up.
the motor in the back of my gl-10 had both head hgaskets blown, heads are still good!
doing up a turbo motor is no mre than any other soob motor, 'cept for a big ol' turbo hanging out the back.

Miles, my Brat will cost $44 for this year, and i just paid $62 to register my wagon for another year. Next year is smog year (yay) and it will almost be double after total tests and fee's.
To have a 3rd wagon will kill me. I could use $300 (the value of the computer) more than another sube. But your right, when will i ever get another offer like this.

so would you ever "tour" your "wagon" out this way?
Posted 07 September 2003 - 04:08 AM
If you have a brand new car, you get reamed on taxes. When I bought my brat, i had the owner write $300 on the title when sold, instaed of $1,500. That way tax isnt that much.
When I bought my '84 Wagon, the dealer i bought it from tried to charge me $280 in tax when he was asking $1400 for the car. I told him i would give him $1,100 cash that same day, including what ever tax came to, and he would have to figure out the rest.
Anyhow. A $30,000 car, you'd pay ALOT in tax's. Thats why cali sucks.
But a $300 '89 GL10 Turbo Wagon with FT4WD 5spd.... its hard to pass up.

Don't let this one go, Brian!

I'll keep everyone updated.
SOOBME! If you are reading this... i will need to contact you. Im very interested in one of those downpipes you made.
Posted 07 September 2003 - 04:53 PM
I'm green with envy:headbang: I want a touring wagon sooooo bad! And a turbo on top of that!
I hope U can work it all out, that car would be PIMP!
Posted 07 September 2003 - 08:42 PM
The answer is always yes!
everyday I drool as I drive by a silver hatch with NO VISIBLE RUST! I would buy it in a second but the person bought it for their kid and it is not for sale.:boohoo:

Personally, if its just you driving them and you dont have the room to park them, its just a waste of time and energy to take care of cars you can't afford to drive or maintain. I think a focused effort on one of these 3 would be the best bet. I think you need to sell your gold wagon, lift the brat, and keep the turbo touring wagon for racing.
You did ask!
Posted 07 September 2003 - 10:24 PM
It probably wouldnt be insured or re-registered until its running to my standards (FAST!!)

Shawn. I had that exact same idea today on my way home from work. I bought the brat so I can have the best of both worlds... slow for the woods, and a faster brat for the street. My goal was to make the Brat EFI but I could just lift the brat and use the GL10 as a racer.
Another Idea i had was to buy it, get it running and take it to Oregon and sell it. I know someone will buy it after the 1st snowfall. And if I could get it running the way it was when it was bought, i know I could get $1,500 for it and not even have to smog it

having the $$ to do things WITH them as opposed to putting $$ IN them are two different things........
finishing one or two COMPLETELY is better than 3 piles sucking $$ all the time,
strip the GL wagon's good bits and sell it, then think about other projects, especially if space is an issue
just my two cents..
I'll call you about Wed.............looking for rotors too

We're all still on for Wednesday. I got a parts list too, and a holiday paycheck to spend.

soobs is gold.
you are only going to know about what you get into to begin with.
that is my claim to my subaru knowledge, because i went through so many of them. i think if you can manage, keep them all
swap around the best stuff on your favorite ride, and use the leftovers to keep the others driveable.
to bad you didnt live out this way, because you can let the grass grow high enough and no one would see them to complain!!!!
as long as you can see them done its worh it. just so long as you dont mind spending all your time on subarus. but if you have a subaru, what better else is there to do?! (besides the message board!)
Posted 29 September 2003 - 11:51 PM
now that I have booked you a guilt trip, go get that sube.
Posted 29 September 2003 - 11:59 PM
Who wants to buy it?
After its running of course.
