Does anyone have any links to some reviews or comparisons of the ea81/ea82 cars? I think it would be neat to read some old magazine articles to see what the press thought about them at the time, especially compared to other cars of the period.

It's not a car review, but a comparative essay between the auto industry and the future of radio broadcasting. It was written in the mid ninties and includes Subaru' niche strategy of selling product. Enjoy.

This is good stuff!

Why is the 79 DL 4SPD listed as 3.889F/3.900R on this spec sheet?

I have a multi-page magazine review. I'd have to get it scanned though. I also have some brochures and ads.

I have a whole heap of articles I gathered last year, but I just haven't had time to scan them yet. Maybe during spring break, but by summer at the latest.
