Okay, 56k killer coming...

My 89 GL wagon, stock. Daily driver, but quite often my days include this road.Posted Image

My 82 GL wagon (pics from today -- stock with crappy tires right now, though its getting a lift soon, can't believe I actually made it up some of the rocky sections without blowing any tires out. I also went through a puddle deep enough that I flooded the passenger side floor)
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

My '76 Ford Sasquatch (solid axle goodness :))
Posted Image

and my '84 turbodiesel mitsubishi pickup (yes, I'm dragging logs out of the woods with it)
Posted Image

And it wouldn't be complete without the VW GTI...
Just kidding:lol: But, actually I do take it on some pretty bad dirt roads sometimes. I need to get a skid plate for it -- I busted the oil pan and an engine mount last summer. It's got a diesel engine, so the torque is really good, and it's so small that you can get it places people wouldn't think.
Posted Image

And my friends have a discovery landrover, a 1980 Scout (doesn't have the subtlety of a subaru, but makes up for it with brute force), and a 1974 FJ cruiser.

I've got a 92 Dodge Ram that I usally take in the mountains, since my 82 4x4 is currently dead.

Is that GTI with the diesel engine, by chance a GTD? Or did someone swap the diesel into it? I heard about the GTD when I had my Rabbit, supposedly they had a 120 HP intercooled turbodiesel, instead of the non-turbo 53 HP that the regular diesel rabbits had.. I miss that car (Esp. with gas being $3.17 at Arco here...)

Nope -- the GTD was never sold in the US. I just put the engine from an '88 diesel jetta in it. It sort of sucks on hills on the highway, but other than that, reaching 85mph is not that hard. Average 40+mpg even with hard driving though.

I think most of you guys just don't get the point of this thread. He means WHO do you roll with, not WHAT DO YOU DRIVE AND HOW MANY PICS OF YOUR OWN CAR CAN YOU POST?
Great job reposting all those pics of yourselves though. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image


Anyways. It varies these days for me, but it tends to look like this.

hi guys. i was just wondering what rigs you guys 4-Bi with.
(pics would be great)


Hey zap, I read that as "What vehicles do you guys use to go four wheeling (offroad) with." Everyone of [HTi]Dain's pics was the vehicles of people who he goes offroading with, except the black brat and the tan wagon, those were his. But, we now know that you have selective reading and chose to flame a member for an innocent post. Maybe he meant "Let me see some pictures of the vehicles you four wheel with that are your friends, not your's." THEN that would have been more clear. However, why would he want to see just your buddy's rig?

Oh, and I like the emiticons. The first one is implying that he is a loser.

Great job reposting all those pics of yourselves though. Posted ImagePosted Image Posted Image Posted Image


And, if you want to talk about thread highjacking, talk to rooinater about his comment on the brat. This thread wasn't to critique people's rides, just to see them. That is a hijack.

I feel like I should post the pics of the people I offroad with:

Here's [HTi]Dain's Brat, he does light offroading with it.

Posted Image

Here's Dain's wagon, stock but it still kicked rump roast.
Posted Image


Savage's hatch. It's busted up, he rolled it on a gravel road. It still showed how great Subaru's were but never letting us down. Stock too.
Posted Image

Here's Savage's brat, I fabricated most the lift for it.
Posted Image

There, those are the vehicles of friends that I offroad with. None are mine.

And the Quote "Don't act like your not impressed." Is from Anchorman. Not meant to mean anything.

Let's just get along, the mere argument that he supposedly "reposted" pics that were from a different thread is stupid. Maybe you should talk to the original poster for not using the search function, you guys do that to everyone in the new and old gen forums.

Yeah, it's always the smallest one at the park. Keep in mind it's open too. :-p

I like bringing a knife to a gun fight, if you know what I mean. Posted Image

Here's a highjack for ya. You still got your old birfs? Give em' up. I need one, or will soon.
