Havia muitos Subarus em Portugal? Nao me lhos lembro de quando la vivia. Desculpe-me por nao escriver perfeitamente, porque ha muitos anos que eu estava em portugal. Pois, eu gustaria ver mais fotos, se Voce lhos tem.

ciao

Hi...

There are a few old Subarus still on the road here...but very few indeed.A know some FF1 and 360´s in junkyards, but never saw one on the road.There was a Subaru dealer in the 70´s near my hometown.He´s still alive but and he told me he sold many Subarus.There were some that were imported from SouthAfrica too, manly GSR´s ( he still have one ).
Here is another pic of my car and a bit of his history...
Posted Image
I took this pic back in 2003,after almost 12 years in the garage withou seeing daylight.
My grandfather bought it new in 1975, and unfortunately he died 3 years later, even before i was born.But after that my dad drove it a few times, until the day the battery went dead.My father oiled the bottom and the doors of the car before it was stored in my grandmother´s garage.That´s why it has no rust:) .
To be continued...


Olá Peter...o teu português até não está muito mau.Estou feliz por encontrar aqui alguem que fale a mesma lingua que eu.

Thanks

Hi...

When i said mechanic, i meant a car shop...( sorry for my english...)
I didn´t replace the rubbers on the doors, they are not to bad so i´ll keep it as original as i can.
My car only have 36000km, about 22400 miles...lol.The engine was stuck but i did not opened it.I got it full of oil and petrol for a week and i was able to unstuck it.Jus had to put new points and it started running the first time i tried. The piston rings should be replaced because the engine oil starts to "disapear",i am getting parts to fix all engine.

wow thats hard to read... really nice car! how many k's does it have on it???


About that you can use a translator, we have one or two international members, i think that you will all like what you will see.

Thanks
