    Yikes!
    Most of my friends also have classic WRX imports from Japan.
    They are priced so you can still afford to mod them properly - the fuel to run them though is another matter in the UK.
    Really would like to get a Blob at some point soon and they are now ranging from 5k now so no too out the way either.
    I take it its a pain to import from the rising sun to the states??

    Incredibly. There's a ton of hoops and stuff to jump through regarding customs and then meeting the required safety regulations and such on the US motorways.

    Well - I didnt buy the classic I was going to but just in the process of buying a Version 3 sti - (minus block). Its got tein coilovers and springs, Afterburner lights, immacualte STI interior, pukka gearbox and various other bits - so will probably break it and move the parts on - one step closer to my blob eye.
    My friend has just fitted a 4" inlet AET turbo to his blob with external wastegate and screamer pipe - hes now good for around 750bhp (is that wot you guys work in??) sounds and goes frikin awesome! - Drove his classic 22b tonight too and that was a real pleasure!
    Its just wot life was meant for!! FUN!!!!

    I looked into buying/importing a Nissan R33 a few yrs back. The car was ~ 11000USD, but when it was all said and done, I'd had close to 22-23K in it. Didn't seem worthwhile to me..

    I'd still rather import a Ford Escort Cosworth RS:




    a Sierra Cosworth RS500





    or Sapphire Cossie RS,




    before I'd import a classic or anything else, for that matter..

    I lust after those Fords, daily..

    Had a Scort Cossie some years ago - most lovely pukka car - untill it got mullered by a deer!!
    would have another in a pinch but not with the cash they fetch!
    I still have more of a thing for the flat four sound though - strange that one!
    Cant stand the sierras though! Yuk - great car but v v ugly!

    I liked you and had respect for you, right up until you said the sierra was ugly.. wanker..

    jk. I agree, the boxer sound (only when using an unequal length header, IMO) is a great, unique sound. But the Sierra and scort cossies have such a great history, and were way ahead of their time. Not unlike (to an extent) my previous Ur-Quattro.

    Horses for courses I guess!!

    Uneaqual lenght headers are the essential ingredient!

    Cant fault the cossies history and even more fantastic that COSWORTH are now well onboard with SUBARU's !
    This can only be good good good!!

    Now to start chopping my new STI. pennies to be had for project BLOBEYE - with a little luck!!
