You've gotta be kidding me Flowmastered87GL!!!!!!

It must be PACKED with Subarus in your area, because that sounds like a killer deal to me. I paid $2000 for Roxanne two years ago, and that was a good price for Alaska. Two months ago, I paid $850 for Ruby, in non-running condition! (And I will be able to sell her for around $2000 with a little more work.)

I'd be willing to help you out, Jim... You could give me that XT... :) Then you'd have room for the "new" wagon. As for the parts car, well, you just tear it apart, then it's not taking up yard space. I'd even be willing to drive down and lend a hand. Even bring the Wife so she could drive the BRAT back..............
