Okay, so I went down to the local Pick'n'Pull and got me a bunch of those little plastic trim screws, as well as helping a buddy find some brake caliper bolts for his 86 Nissan 200SX (we finally found them in an 80s Stanza tall-wagon). On the way I saw lots of soobies... here are the photos. Plus an alien that I couldn't resist. :cool:

A Brat with nice decals and intact grille (I have nice photos of the decals for that sticky thread later).

A wonderfully rust-colored EA81 GL sedan:

A fairly clean EA82 GL sedan:

An elusive EA82 GL coupe:

An old EA81 hatch, looks like a DL?

A sad-looking EA81 DL wagon:

A strikingly nice color on this EA82 GL-10 4WD Turbo - I wanted this car to live so badly! It's hard to see but that's a deep metalflake blue.

And last but not least of the Soobies, an ECVT Justy:

Here is an oddball I couldn't resist photographing: an old Opel coupe. My dad drove one in the 70s and told me it was his favorite car ever. Course, he's never driven a Subaru :brow::

So, as you can see there are lots of Subarus in this yard, and the prices are reasonable as it turns out (we were charged $1 apiece for the bunch of screws and the bunch of bolts). If anyone needs Subaru parts in Eugene I'd recommend the Pick'n'Pull up Highway 99 as a place to check. They also have a lot of newer gen Legacies.

Me and Tin Soldier are hitting the East Coast version of this tomorrow. May get pics, maybe not. We'll see.

I love salvage yards.

Yes, everytime I goto a yard I'm right at the brink of tears cause 99.9% of the roos I see have been hit beyond repair..........snif..........poor little roos.




























OK, maybe I get just a little too attatched to a Subaru.;)

Hmmm does that EA82 3-door have a good passenger side rear quarter window? I'm in desperate need for a good one...

Sad Brat...:(

Oh and that white EA81 hatchback is a Standard or known as an STD...

Is there a possibility I could get you to pick up a couple parts for me? I'm in Seattle, and would prefer not to make the trip if at all possible.


Thanks,
Kevin

The shame I am having is seeing the GLF:( ....not having anything on it that I could use on mine. I havent been to a junk yard since I used to work at one...and there arent any good ones here....I am jealous of you.


The justy reminded me of the one I used to have..but mine was a dark grey.

Caboobaroo, I can check for that window when I'm back there.

MyFinalCoffinX, what parts were you looking for?

Most of these old Soobs in the yard weren't wrecked at all... I have the feeling people just didn't love them enough to keep them on the road. :confused:

After visiting my local yard again today... that yard looks clean and spotless. Mine looks like such a junk hole. Plus, the cars are rusted all to hell. I'm posting a thread about it in a few minutes.

I was hoping to get a few of those silver caps for the wagon wheels. And possibly one of these if you came across one...

Thanks!

Is that a good driver's side tail light on the EA82 coupe? I need one. Mine is has been broken and is glued back together.

Most of the Subarus at my local yard are not even wrecked. Almost no rust on any of them. It is the nicest yard I have ever seen. The whole place is paved and all the cars are set on stands. Cheapest prices any where too. The most expensive part is a motor at $100. The sad part is the yard will not sell any complete cars. There has been several cars I would have bought and fixed. Today I saw a "historic" gen 1 two door coupe waiting to be drained and set out with the rest of the cars. Brings a tear to the eye.

Okay, I will pull the taillight next time I'm there too (if it's still there). It was good, yeah.

Spark, I find Subaru wagons for sale almost daily in the Eugene and Portland Craigslists... eugene.craigslist.org, portland.craigslist.org ... the EA82s usually run $500-1500, depending on equipment/condition.
