most of you know that i currently dont have a car. well i didnt.

saturday i picked up a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS with 153K on it

the previous owner had a little mishap with it and didnt know how to fix it nor did he know what was wrong with it. to my luck, it turns out to be one busted control arm... and a bent strut.

thats just to drive it. the impact was so severe it blew both airbags and bent, dented all four wheels.

to me, these are minor fixes and as soon as the parts arrive.. it will be on the street.

i have since replaced the wheels and removed the blown airbags.

enough of my rambling... onto the pics..

warning... i am a very amateur photographer....

some of these are of the damage to the car.

how did he manage to bend all four wheels? awesome grab though. and nice bonus on the zune in the glove box. I had a buddy who bought a car from the police auction and found a nice stash underneath the spare tire. funny thing was, he would have never found it is the tire didn't go flat. got to love little shit like that. anyways, what are your plans for it?

how much you pay for it?

the plans for the moment is just get it driveable. after that... the possibilities are endless. $$$ is a huge factor as well. it will most likely stay stock for a while. i really dont need any extra attention with it.

updates?


pfft...


i got the rear subframe fixed so no more eating tires off the rear.

i changed the struts back to stockers because the KYBs were blown...

i installed the factory compass option in the dash... its so nice! has altimeter, outside temp, and outside press. and a compass... i love it!

currently the car is for saleish....to the right person and the right price.

im looking for 5K seeing as the only thing it still needs is the rocker panel repaired.. and a new bumper..

im getting fog lights soon... so other than that... its a stand up car... and has exceeded the expectations that i originally had.

i have rallied it a few times... didnt win... but i did come in 3rd at one. AWESOME car in the snow. i got it stuck in a target parking lot in 18" of snow however... but i got it out with the rocking method.

so if anyone wants a great snow car, and just great all around car.. let me know... im looking to move onto a truck or something like that. so.. trades will be considered...

I love these cars, but no offense Chris, so don't get all mad with me telling you this. 5k is a CRAZY number for this car.

Maybe its your area, I dont know. But they go for about 2-3k in the midwest. And thats in good shape and less miles.

Other than that, was the rally you raced in a rallyX? What class did you run? SA? PA? In my wrx I had to run PA all the time just because of my springs.

its the area.... they go for 3k in rusted rough shape... i mean.. im way flexible on the price... but again.. like i said... to the right person... they will pay 5K for it

i ran one SCCA rallyX and they made me run PA becasue of the KYBs and the SRI.

the other rallyX was not sanctioned... and it was a run what you brung deal. there was a dune buggy out there...

they had classes... but it didnt matter much... i was beat by a FWD eagle summit...

i did beat the 5th gen hatch with the GSR in it... he was pissed...lol

that race was all in the driver skill though.. becasue another guy had an L with an RS swap and kicked my ass he got me by over 2 minutes overall.
