Show off your roos Mileage!

Recommended Posts

As long as this thread continues to pop up I'd like to point out I should have a post way early in this thread , about "the professor". A guy in North Salem NY who by now has almost certainly moved to retirement or is no longer with us.

 

It was a great experience my several meetings with this gentleman. And like I posted , his wife backed up his statements.

One hatchback - over 1 million miles and he said up to 450k still had all original components associated with the engine.

 

He would not allow me to contact Subaru on his behalf. He was not a Subaru fanatic only. He had a few vehicles of much interest.

I hope he is still going strong. I've had a few thoughts about the guy recently. Usually that means I'll see his obituary or sometimes I run into that person. He's got to in his 90's now.

 

Hope you enjoy the read. Absolutely not a speck of BS in there.

 

Cheers !!

That was the best running ea82 I've ever had. Never skipped a beat in all the 40k miles I put on it. Well, up until the fuel system clogged up from a rusted out filler neck

My pink Loyale has 268K original miles and a unicorn hood ornament. Still running as strong (weak) as when I got it at 114K! 

 

Hoping for another 260K…
