Just got this for $100. Drove it home too. The little 1/4" coolant line under the carb to the manifold had a small leak. Guy broke a screwdriver off in the ignition switch and let it sit for 3 years:

Those rims are sweet. So how come you don't have an offroad suby yet. This could be it.

Unfortunately I just moved to Austin, TX where the huge students/slacker population causes any old beater from the 80s to easily fetch 150% of KBB value. If the thing will drive from dorm to school to record store it's sold. I wish I had stocked up on Soobs when I was still in Boise. You guys in the Northwest should consider yourselves lucky.

Agreed.

Tacoma to Dallas was a huge change as well.. No soobs or parts:(

I am certain these old soobs are going up in value here too. I just found an old non-inspectable wagon so rusted the rocker panel was non-existent (unibody important part there!), the dealer wanted not only cost of car but doc fees. I gave away an old soob that looked better than what I have been finding for sale.....I suppose it is common sense. Even these old EA82's with errors do better efficiently than a brand new subaru "hot rod".
Who wants my 93 sedan (I got for free) for $12000 :lol:

BGD, you missed the decimal. Was that $120.00?? :lol:

Seriously, Subarus present a great value in a car. They're (usually) inexpensive to buy, easy and cheap to maintain, and last nearly forever.

I've just gotta get out of the Midwest. *Any* pre-1990 car is scarce here, and Subarus are rarer than most. Damn road salt.

It was a revelation spending time in the Pacific Northwest and seeing all the cars that I'd forgotten existed.
