New to the forum and want to share my subie stories!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! 

Just popping in to introduce myself, currently own two Subaru's. Just started daily driving a 96 Legacy L that I built a Frankenmotor for. Only 200 miles on the new engine so far. 

Bought the car for $150, built the engine and back on the road after a total of $930! (Hint: I am a mechanic for a small independent Subaru shop in Western NC, so I've got a bunch of spare parts and nic nacks lying around).

Once I figure out how to upload some pictures I'll show you what I got. I'm planning on painting the car and wheels soon so hopefully you guys can help me decide on colors.

I'm buying a 98 forester tomorrow for $500, so that'll be subie #3!

The mystique of Boone to an East coast vintage enthusiast like myself is that we all here understood it to be a place of old Subaru worship. 
 

Last time I was out that way was around 1993 when I stopped in Jonas Ridge to meet Mr. Mosely - Mosrite Guitars. 

Then when we were outside of Win/Salem in what is now Phafftown there was a rusting 76 sedan I recall near our friends place. 
 

Personally I love both ends of NC , never spent much time in the middle except drive troughs. 
 

We had an elder friend in Marion above I-40 who was an engineer who worked for Howard Hughes and had an incredible list of accomplishments. He owned a small mountain top. Such a beautiful property. NC has a feel you never forget. 
 

Enjoy !
