91 Legacy - Running, but at this second has no front control arms. This will be remedied this evening.

Got this fixed, so now I have two Soobies that are officially running and roadworthy! :banana:

If I hadn't just picked up a turbo coupe, my situation would be a little better. I have two runners, the turbo wagon and the stock hatch. The lifted hatch and the t-coupe are non-runners. The only one that drives at the moment is the hatch since the wagon developed a MASSIVE exhaust leak right before the turbo... But that will get fixed and then I'll update my post.

Out of the five Subarus I've owned and sold, only one didn't run when I sold it, a 98 OBW with its second set of head gasket issues. The rest were all EA81s and 82s.

I've got 2 GL wagons, 81 & 82. 81 is in rebuild and 82 is crunched along entire drivers side, would like to make it a woods runner in the future.:rolleyes:

So I'm 0 for 2.

I guess I need to get my butt in gear!:-\

1985 Brat Registed/Running

1978 GL Fast Back Coupe (running but needs extensive metal work)

Parts Cars
1983 fwd wagon(could run w/ a lot of work)
1991 loyale(pretty much a shell at this point)
1985 Brat

Non Subaru Cars
1973 VW Bug Registered/Running
1966 VW Westfalia Camper Registered Running
2001 Harley Davidson Nightrain Registered Running

Non-subaru Projects
1956 VW Bug
1959 VW Bug
1959 VW Van
1967 VW Van
1973 VW Westfalia
1981 Harley Davidson Sporster Shovel Head.

Needless to say I have an addictive personality. VW's are my Heroin, Subarus are my Crack, and Harley's are my Alcohol.

Being a big fan of the flat 4 design Subaru beats VW in my opinion. More reliable and more power than the vw design.
