http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/01/r...legacy-2-5-gt/

Lets all congratulate Marnie on her new found fame.

Looking good!

Flicker user and Autoblog reader Marnie (a.k.a. *Your Pal Marnie on Flickr) acquired the "97 Legacy 2.5 GT pictured above because she needed something with AWD to act as a winter car. As any of you who live in areas where the white stuff falls during the cold months, this is entirely understandable, and the Subaru is a capable machine for such a task. Marnie notes that the Legacy was way too nice to be called a "beater," but she soon discovered that it could be a fun car to beat on in a good way.

The black Subaru is now driven in RallyCross and TSD events, and when the weather's right, it's used for ice racing. It was lightly-modded when first acquired and it's seen some additional changes over the last few months. We love that the car's so versatile -- in addition to weekend racer, it's Marnie's daily driver -- and happily name it today's Reader Ride of the Day. Thanks, Marnie!

that's me!

I've been in there twice now.

they took a couple "editorial liberties" with the info I gave them -- i.e., I have not yet gone ice racing -- but it's nice to be featured!

I'm gonna get clobbered in the voting this weekend.

I like the first picture. My Mom had the same model with the funky black/purple paint. Maybe hers was a 96.

Subie Gal (Jamie) Started out with a black '99 Legacy GT.

She went nuts with yellow decals on hers though.

Here is a link showing what she started her rally career with:

Oh yeah, in case you really want to go nuts with those Hella rally lights:

My understanding is that Rochester, New York does indeed get dumped on, snow wise, from time to time so a Subaru is well suited to this particular area.

^^ I like it. red mudflaps are my next mod... it was funny scraping the mud off the roof the first few times, but the novelty has worn off!

lol, I'll be putting big mudflaps on mine too. Ditto on the novelty wearing off...except for me its 15lbs of clay in the wheels, wheelwells, and suspension.

I feel sorry for the $2 carwash guys whenever they see my car pull up

I was the 146th votor for your Legacy. The Skyline, with 41% of the vote, appears to own the election.
