Okay, we "all" get together and pool our money. Shawn and or Mick does the bidding for us. Then after the legallities are abated. We have an USMB "super auction". I know, I know,,,,, you've had enough beer tonight Tom. But think of the possibilities here. Old cars in general, and Subaru's to boot. I mean, come on guys!!!!!

THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!

was an old guy that lived alone there... I'm guessing he drove them at some point. his place was fairly wooded, so he just parked them. 4 of the soobs were under a home built carport, the others were out.

house was really ratty. would need to be burned down and dozed... would have been nice to have the 4+ acres though....

Paul, Brian, according to my FSM the '73 wagons were all split-gate. Looks like the Holy Grail of the FSCR is in Iowa.

Let me clarify my earler post: Are the other Subarus still available, not the other old cars.

all the soobs were sold. initial inspection by me deemed them all crusher material. the newest one (78 wagon) had a hole the size of a floormat in the passenger side front floor, etc.... most had the normal fender rot.... and rocker rot...

then I spied the tailgate! :clap: :clap: My son wanted me to get the coupe, but the floor in it were way too bad...
I got thetailgate one though because it was in the best shape of them, and had an awesome basket roof rack on it.

I also go the alloys that were there. one other guy (maybe 2) bought up the rest of the soobs.

if they (soobs) would have been in better shape, I would have gotten them all, and tried to find a place to store them, but they were too far gone.

I hope to have the 73 home in the next few days to get a better look at it...

I'll work out a roadtrip,somehow.As long as it isn't falling apart I don't care about holes.THe thing will be for fun and will never be a true resto...but who cares?

It looks decent enough for a base.
