Brings back memories of my 1st Subaru. But of course, in ALOT better condition:

I pick it up a week from Saturday. The only problem is I dont have anywhere to park it... From what i've heard, it needs a radiator and a CV Joint. Moosens, you know we'll be in touch. Think you can scrounge up a couple working CV's? and/or a Radiator??

There are alot more pix here:

Bummer. I just threw a '79 away. I didn't think I'd need any running gear, all I saved was the grille and the woodgrain dash. I'll see if the guy still has it.

Yeah I'm sure it will be ok. I'll have to talk to my woman first. But if it's just for a short time I think she will go for it.

short time? Hrm, not sure. Gotta find another place to park myself, and hopefully that place has room for 3 sube's :) Possibly 4.

The car will most likely stay in Mendocino for a while until I do locate a place for it, but im still going up there Saturday to get it so I can drive it to my friends.

Nice car! That's exactly what I have been looking for. I just bought an immaculate 84 GL wagon 4x4, but there's just something about those Gen 1 wagons that looks so cool!

Wow looks very similar to Russ' beer wagon #3 just a slightly different color.... seats look in REALLY good shape for the age.

I just saw one of those (same color too) on the side of the road today with a DOT sticker on it. Not in near as good condition as that one.

About a year ago there was a 78/79 wagon at my local u-pull-it. I pulled a push bar just like that one off it. It had the most immaculate black interior I'd ever seen for a junkyard car. Unfortunately they crushed it shortly after.

btw...Nice score!

There's usually at least a couple of gen 1's in each of the two NV Pick-N-Pulls here.

That car looks to be in better shape than my '83!

Well, i was thinking of using a EA81 radiator to get it to sac. Also breaking the CV Joint's in the front and using 4WD to drive the wagon back using the rear wheels.

Brian if you need to you can store the car at my place. I got the ok from my girlfriend. I'm sure you can leave it here as long as you need. Just buy a tarp or something to cover it.

Nice car! I'm so glad to see people starting to take a renewed interest in Gen 1s. I was beginning to think Paul and I were all that was left!

Let me know if I can help with any parts.

Todd. My 1st Subaru (also my 1st car) was a '79 GL. I've always loved the Gen1 sube's, but could never find one in good condition. This has to be the best looking Gen1 ive seen to date, except for some of Moosen's collection.

Cant wait to drive it. I'll definatly need some parts.

NICE WAGON!!!!!!!!! I have to agree with most of you guys here. I really like my 82 Brat but I LOVE my 80 Brat more. Its just that more vintage look of the gen1s with their round headlights and stuff. I guess Ive always like them better because my very first car was a 79 Brat when I was in highschool many, many moons ago.:brolleye: Hey Brian you can keep it here in OH if you need to.:brow: Congrats..................
