Found this on craigslist. New as of yesterday. $4000 for an 02 wrx. Anybody know if this is legit. Conti, any history of this car (just by looking at it)?? 4000 project car, sounds feisable. Supposedly drove into a marsh. reconstructed title

Ew, I know that car. All the wiring is fried like bad. All of the engine bay was soaked for a while. Interior leaves something to be desired. I say it is worth it if you have a lot of time and extra wiring harnesses, ECU and engine.

Just ask 00Maddog about that car, he will tell ya.


Oh, it seems they found an ECU for it. I am surprised that the engine runs at all.

the engine has a dead hole, prob bent valves cause the t-belt was way off. the trans, p/s, engine, etc. was all full of water for a long time...everything is likely shot.

I don't think he was ever on the boards. He was living in Soldotna when he had the car; I met him a couple times at gas stations and told him about NASIOC. I never noticed that he signed up. My son had some mutual friends with him. I think the story was he was driving to ANC in the wee hours of the morning and ended up way out in potter's marsh.

I know of a $4500.00 rex out in wasilla. I saw it when I took my freind there to pick up a fox body mustang. The seller is a guy that rebuilds old gl's and justys. It is grey or white (can't remember), body damage to the roof, pass. fender and pass. doors. Had a cold air intake but the tubing got crushed. Drivetrain wise its ok, missing one wheel (stock wrx wheels). Interior is good as well. Good donor car for a swap. If I hadn't bought the Syclone then I would have bought it. Guys number is (907)376-9832 if interested.
