Hey Stupid, that thing is in great shape! Now I know that when I cruise through your area I can look for you. I am sure you are the ONLY one in the area with a nice old turbo wagon. Hell maybe in PA. Didn't see any rust??!! Someone's grandma's old car or it came from a different state. Nice ride! Boz

That's an interesting decal config that I haven't seen before - I like it.

And yes - I have seen several GL decals that haven't turned yellow. Got one on my Brat - and I've got an extra from the JY - just happened upon it one day....

I'll try to get some interior shots this weekend, we're forcasted to get a NorEaster so all that snow should make some interesting shots. This was the 1st old turbo I had ever seen, I snatched it up within a couple of days of seeing the ad 2 years ago. Put-Put test drive...I knew it had bad compression...still paid a grand cause body was in great shape. I replaced cracked head & resealed engine (couldn't have done it without your help). As far as I know, I'm only USMB on EastCoast with ea81t. Local dealer (w&l subaru) actually took an interest in this project....every other old soob I've owned...they would just laugh. I was cleaning interior this past summer & came across an old drug store magnet w/ a Tennessee address...so I assume this car grew up as a "volunteer rebel". The car got its name "Stupidru" from when I worked at Advance Auto Parts. We called Subaru's Stupidru's cause there were so many frigin questions you had to ask the customer to find exactly what they needed (so many variations of each model), it was a pain in the neck to narrow it down. Needless to say I was the butt of everyone's Subaru jokes cause all of them drove mopar-ford-chevy. But they all agreed on one thing...that a subaru is durable and practically indestructable...if well maintained. I've had Subaru fever since 1983 when a friend of mine went in debt by purchasing an 83 gl-10 2wd 5speed.

well the badge being yellow is because on the "turbotraction" rigs the badges and some other things were gold instead of silver just to point it out

That is a nice wagon on either coast. I like the graphics as well. I have never seen that one before.

NOTE;
Not all Turbotraction badges were gold. Actually, I believe "ALL" the coupes were silver(chrome) I've seen wagons with gold and chrome. I had a perfect gold one that I had put onto my '84 Turbo wagon. I sold it to Turbones wife.

Actually - I think Rob said it's still around somewhere. HE doesn't have it anymore. The spousal unit had a little accident with it or something I think....

It was sold to the individual who backed into it. I believe it went back to auction and ended up back in Bonney Lake.
