I am new to this forum, but, not to Fuji Heavy.

I owned and loved my 78 & 82 Brats

I now own a 2013 WRX Hatch and love it. Still breaking her in, but, what a distance Subaru has achieved in technology. Except in the audio department.

I never listen to the radio anyways!

I think the audio has come up pretty well. My 82 Brat had a single speaker in the dash and an AM/FM radio. My 05 Baja has 4 speakers, 2 tweeters and a factory amp/sub under the seat.

Last week my front right axle went out and had to replace that the ball joint wheel bearings and brake caliper. This brat is a happy one.

Less than a year and I'm sad to report that I'll be looking to sell this trusty steed. I'm moving from Los Angeles to San Francisco, and will be leading a car-free life. This car has been a terrific partner over the past several months, and is still in terrific shape. PM me with any interest!

I've always had a soft spot for Subarus, and after some ambling around on Craigslist, wound up with an oldie but goody: a 1984 GL hatchback.

I wasn't particularly looking for a "classic," but this car was just in too-impeccable condition to pass up. It's only had two owners, and the second has only owned it for the past year. And only 137k miles! I took it to a very good local mechanic for an inspection and they were blown away by how good it's condition is.

Despite all that, I admit I'm having a bit of buyer's-anxiety - I'm not terribly mechanically-inclined, and this is my only vehicle. She's definitely a beauty, though!

Hey guys!

In addition to my 02' Foz, I picked up my newest project car, The 1986 XT!
It's got over 300,000 miles on it, but it's in incredibly great shape and It will be used to bring home some rallycross trophies... So hello old school!

Hi there. I'm the designated mechanic for my girl friend's 87 GL Wagon. I'm finding a lot of really helpful information here. I've never worked on Subaru's before, but am finding them to be pretty sinple and straight forward.

Just finished a ground up restoration ('85)... when it dries up a little bit I'll be enjoying it. Only real mod was a cyclops retrofit.

Hey guys I am looking at picking up a 1988 XT-6 All Wheel Drive.
It's not in bad shape but.
I have only had subaru's back to 2006.

What parts transfer to the old motor? Can I put on a 5 speed tranny in the XT-6?
Or maybe even a 6 speed? With the DCCD?

Hopefully you guys can see where I am going with this? I want it to be a great DD.

Not gonna turbo it or anything just leave the motor as is. And upgrade items as they go out.
thank you for any info you can add.
Jeff

Maybe a wagon they produced from 85-94. Not super rare but not a lot of runners left. I found one and resurrected it. Cool car and loves gravel. Blue Interior. EA82 Engine super easy to work on.

Wow, you all have some neat stuff. I'm lovin all the wagons and brats! I just got an 88 RX sedan. The motor is bleeding a little so I'll be digging through here to figure that mess out. PO took it to a dealer and they wanted to replace every single engine gasket/seal!
