    Arrow howdy!

    This is my first Subie. It was purchased by a good friend of mine in 2003, with about 15K on the odometer. he has taken very good care of it and even slapped on a turbo back exhaust and a tune to get a little more 'oomph' out of her.

    Unfortunately, hard times hit and the car has not received the attention it needs or deserves.

    enter moi, i have traded a 2002 explorer sport for this car and i cannot be more excited. it's a project, for sure, but i will get her back on the road ASAP.

    here's how she sits currently, with about 140k on the odo.






    i look forward to learning from you guys!

    got the battery charged up and cables replaced, after sitting for nearly 3 months, she started right up on the first turn of the key!

    oil seems to be leaking from the turbo and the suspension is FUBAR... little rust on the rotors and the tires are all damn near dry rotted.

    i'm super excited, i LOVE project cars!

    i'll create a separate thread documenting the restoration

    most bugeyes are project cars. most are modded with "less expensive" parts, and some are found neglected.

    That's how I got mine on the cheap too. It needed exhaust work, mainly gaskets.

    Wagons are awesome. Have fun with it!
