For the past few months, Jibs has been nice enough to store my lifted wagon at his property. I had moved to a new place, and the new house doesnt have room to store a beatup, broken down subaru. I did manage to get it out on a wheelin trip a few months ago with Jibs and his lifted brat. I believe that was the run that blew my headgasket
Sooooo.... Thanks to my tax return this year I was able to pickup another EA81 to replace the wagon. Camping season is here, and i need to get out and do some fishing and get back into wheelin again! So thanks to uncle sam, and craigslist I went and picked this little gem up yesterday
148k on the ticker and the thing runs like a clock. A couple small dings here and very little rust (although it does have some rot, nowhere important). So, here in a couple weeks I should be making a visit to Jibs, where we will start to dismantle my old wagon. I will be transfering the lift, bumper and rear brakes to the hatch. Also, last weeks yard run netted an LSD which will end up in the new hatch as well.
Ive almost lost count, but i believe this makes #14. Only EA81 type left to buy would be a sedan and 2dr coupe. Next to my wagon (when it was new), this has to be the smoothest runnin EA81 ive owned. Im not 100% sure, but the butt-dyno even tells me it out accelerates and pulls harder than my RX Guess that means I better do some more work on the RX tomorrow (new turbo sitting on the bench, different story).
Anyhow, if you wanna see more pictures I will be putting them all in this album http://gallery.usmb.net/hatch I'll be updating that album whenever i get new pix so check back soon!

This weekend I will be extracting my lift from my old Wagon, and putting it on the hatch I'll have to find a way to scrape together some money for new tires... but Im hoping my coopers still have alittle life in them. We'll soon see
More pix are here http://gallery.usmb.net/hatch
Should be fun to see this hatch develop. And will be even more fun wheelin it!

You've heard of Ferrari's Testarossa,
Well this could be Covatarossa.
Look it up (Covata Rossa).
