Soobies in Fort Worth?

Recommended Posts

I am in Oklahoma, and it is the same thing here, not a Soob in sight, other than mine.

Wait a minute, there are quite a few newer subes here and even some older ones....have a couple of the moderators here in the DFW as well Subaru3 and calebZ.....I see quite a few legacy/forsester/outbacks, many from the Teape dealerships. I have a gray faded Legacy from 91, and saw a red Loyale in good shape yesterday on way home from work.......keep eyes peeled, there here......

I once had an old Subie and when I was selling it folks would call me and ask what is a Subaru.

 

Luckly we are not bothered with "white misery" and rust here.

 

I have a 79 Brat for sale and an 86 Brat coming from Conroe on Tuesday.

 

I also have a truckload of Gen 1 parts.

 

I reside just 3 miles west of Loop 820 off I-30 West.

I recently moved to Austin. Seen quite a few newer soobs, but only 1 other gen 2. Was a wagon. My 85 brat is the only one I've seen so far. Can't even drive it though. Needs a new engine. Damn I can't wait to get it back on the road! So far not having any luck finding a USMB member here that's a mechanic.

There's actually quite a bit of Soobies in Texas. There's a lot more newer ones than older ones. There's quite a bit in Houston and Austin.

i live south. in midlothian/venus pretty much at the junction of 287 and 67. I have a 97 outback limited, wife has a 1996 LSi, and my roommate has a 1995 Postal wagon right hand drive. My friend taylor has a blue impreza wagon with jdm goodies, my friend jay lives in river oaks and has my old black wagon (avatar). I used to have my digital urban camo GL when I lived in haltom city, but sold it to my brother. He just got his license. We should REALLY have a get together someday. We could include LegacyGT, SL-i, and subaruforester.com. I am not "cool" enough for the impreza crowd, so nasioc is bottom of the list i guess. The more soobs the better but i have had sti owners think my GL was a toyota...

Sounds like fun.

 

I need to get the timing belts changed on my 86 Brat.

 

After 3 back surgeries, I will have to get someone to do it for me.

I came across this thread I thought I'd try a reply I'm in Houston do any of you know anyone who can work on a 95 legacy 5MT? I mean the trans work I'm looking for someone who knows the sube and doesn't cost like a dealer.

????

Thanks

Dan
