01 Legacy GT Hi from 1st x Subaru owner

You can either “blame” or “credit” list members at mercedesshop.com and merkurowners.org for my presence here. After my recent purchase of a 2001 Legacy GT, I asked where to go for help & info regarding my Legacy. They suggested here and a few other places (not appropriate for family viewing). Just kidding
My first experience with non-US performance cars was in the mid 60s when a friend took me for a ride in his xk150 or was it a 140? Whatever. When I was young and single, it was sports cars. Now that I’m a “responsible” adult; its a Cape Cod, a chubby Golden Retriever, three children in college, and the unbelievably understanding, hard working wife. She has 96 Chrysler Van, the son has a bike (most intelligent one in the family), and the two daughters each have a Merkur Scorpio - that’s not to say they run. Well kinda. Intermittantly might be more descriptive. And therefore the reason for the Legacy. Relaible 4wd for the daughter who scoots around the north central PA hills and won’t allow a blizzard to prevent her from seeing her chosen one. He has a BMW 320 and we all know how well they play in the slush and snow.
So, she got the Legacy as a present for this Christmas, (and the next 9), graduation (under, grad & PHD). Since then, I had a few minutes of driving pleasure between repair shops getting it ready for her.
PS I’ll try to contribute. In the meantime, I’l be trying to get/keep two Scorpios running.
PPS Next time you see an old blue MB e320 Wagon and you wanna do the country road twisties or cruise the blvd; put on a little Jimmy Buffett and we’ll enjoy the ride to Margaritaville...

...a strange attracton...
That's an appropriate description. Apparently you escaped becoming a "Merkurholic."
Where you ever to the car shows at Carlisle PA? We had 236 XRs & Scorpios there this past year at the Ford natioinal to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the XR. One was a prize at the banquet, another through the drawing by Carlisle Productions and won by a Merkur owner!

Supposidly my old XR was going to be at the show since it was such a low mileage car that was all origional and fairly mint cond. Mine was probly the only one there/in existance that has a center (rear) roof mounted antenna (fuba). I never did find a scorpio that I wanted enough to buy...I was really holding out for the rareist of them all....the 5 speed scorpio.
Anyhooooo I could go on all day but.... once again...Welcome!

Any comments are appeciated.
PS Merkur stuff...
"Mine was probly the only one there/in existance that has a center (rear) roof mounted antenna (fuba)."
I'll ckeck the Merkur lists. Who'd you sell it to?
"I never did find a scorpio that I wanted enough to buy...I was really holding out for the rareist of them all....the 5 speed scorpio"
There's a fellow near Camden NJ who just bought one from a collector. Regency Red with about 13,000 miles, but not a 5-speed - the most coveted Scorpio.
