Some people have cars and some people go through some things that make their cars more like friends.

This is how my friend started out...

Bought it at auction for $1400.00 and drove it on the trailer.

Then to this...


Many rallycrosses and adventures later I have grown to trust this "car" with my life.



My daugther was driving in a rallycross. One bad corner with too much speed and time stopped as I watched her and her friend go over. The single scariest moment in my life. But, my friend kept her and her friend safe and uninjured. I have some other pics I will add as well to show how much these cars can actually handle.

Goodbye friend... Posted Image

The single scariest moment in my life.

That's tough. At least everybody was okay. I've come to regard my rigs in much the same light...I trust my Legacy more than I trust most people.

Man that sucks, but I'm glad your daughter and her friend are okay, cars are a whole lot easier to repair than people, and unlike people, they can be replaced. (looks like a lot of parts are still good too, so your next rally project might be cheaper!

'Tis a sad day when such a 'friend' expires. Glad to hear the occupants made it out okay. Are we going to see a part-out thread? :)

It lives! Tiny photo on the cover of this month's Grassroots Motorsports, and in the rallycross feature on page 87.

many thoughts here, the kids are ok, the car looked really cool after all your work and even though it's gone now, it's been 'immortalized' in a magazine?

that's like one major bummer and two happy endings

can't beat that :)
