More projects than
you can shake a stick at.

Default Subarus are Sooo last year... New project.

I got this car for free from my uncle, I have always wanted a 2002, I would have preferred a manual, but beggars can't be choosers. according to him when the car was parked in 03' only thing wrong was the alternator( which was removed and went missing along with the keys). I have bought a new one, but need to source a lower bracket. I have installed a new ignition tumbler I got off ebay for $10 I have removed the stock solex and will be putting a weber 32/36 on. There is also a small hole in the gas tank I need to fix. And the brakes seem to be iffy, I hope to get it running by the end of September, depending on funding. I am somewhat familiar with older carbed vehicles as I have a 71' VW 411 that I rebuilt with my other uncle at 16. i am a bit scared about putting the weber on, the kick down cable seems to be in good shape, so we will see.

Here are some "before pics", it is 95% straight, and rust free as it was a California car. I want to try and save the paint, and all the chrome is in the trunk.

Nice deal!

The 2002 and 510 are two cars I've wanted for awhile.

I have a copy of European Car somewhere of a 2002 with an 80's M5 driveline. Tight fit but a very well done project.

I'd about kill for one of the rare 2002 turbos.

WoW This brings back a lot of great memories! I had a 69 2002Ti ( dual solex sidedrafts) was later converted to Weber DCOEs. I imported a ton of Alpina racing parts back in the 70's for it, even got the BMW factory Turbo body kit looked just like the silver one posted above. When it was completed it was basically a SCCA legal B sedan run on the streets. Then the best one was a 1970 1602 convertible that was one of two legal US cars. My wife and I picked it up from a Army Capt. that had it built for the US when he was stationed in Germany. Wish we still had both cars!

I had the M5 driveline in my 79 5 series. Fun car, suuuuper ugly.

The 2002 is a different story. I would love one. Just really hard to find a decent one around here. A lot more to choose from back in Oregon.

A BMW 3.0 cs would be my choice in a classic bmw. or an M1


Yours looks nice good luck with it~!

I just missed out on a great orange '76 3.0 CS that had just been worked over, new carbs and all several years ago in KY.

The CSL's were great racers

"Project" seems like a bit of an understatement by the way that thing looks. post up progress.
