Post where to find a cheap Impreza OBS/wagon?

I'm looking for a grocery-getter to do a 2.5L swap on in the future, heh. But all the potential donor cars I've seen are in the $14-15K range... too much for me. Is there any chance of me finding a great deal someplace? It doesn't even have to be running - I'll fix it up somehow in my spare time if need be.

If you guys could help me out I'd really appreciate it. I'd like to make my turbo RS a weekend GT/race car - not my daily driver.

-Edwin

hey, stay out of my thread!

i can't afford your car with all those mods man. it'd put me in the poorhouse for sure. i want a cheap daily driver that has cargo room, yet is small and nimble enough to dart around Boston. An OBS would fit the bill nicely IMHO.

Ok, so I stopped at this used car place to check out the Scooby there. I don't know these guys, so I can't recommend them, but here's the info:

2.2L Automatic Transmission
74,142 miles on it
it's a 1995 Impreza LX Wagon
(it's got Outback trim...don't know exactly what that means...)
It's got the roof rack, A/C fold down seats, etc...
it was 10,900 (too much in my opinion) but they just "marked it down" to 7999...

Don't know if that's what you're looking for or not.

Don Main Auto Center, Inc.
(603)329-7373

Like I said, I don't know this guy personally, but that's what I found out.

Good luck!

Thanks Flea, I really appreciate your taking the time to stop by the dealership. That was definitely above and beyond the call of duty!

Hm, automatic ... well, I guess beggars can't be choosers. I'll put together a list of the pointers people have sent me and start shopping this weekend...

There's a OBS wagon in Hampstead NH, on my way home from work I drive by it everyday. It's at a used car place, it's dark blue, and looks to be a 95 or a 96. I have no clue how much it is, but a friend of mine just bought a 96 for under 10K from Commonwealth. She found that by searching on their website.

I'll take a look at the name of the used car place, and let you know. You could always give them a call to see how much they're asking for it...

Hey Edwin,

I'll talk to my buddy, who I bought mine off of. I'll give you more details later.

No problem on stopping by there, I love car shopping! In high school my friends and I used to go to dealerships to see if we could test drive the "cool" cars...

You sure you want a wagon? How about a L sedan 5spd? There is one at my dealership a 97 with about 70k on it that might be in your price range. The car is mint.

I sent you email. Let me know where you are exactly and we can talk. Funny that I'd see a Subaru saleman on this board...
