Default They're only as old as they feel.

I don't know if it's the American culture, the having too much money to know what to do with, or the trade your 'junker' in schemes you guy's have, but I've seen far too much calling of new cars old. Be it hatch owners taking pics of their cars next to 'old' GDB's, Or threads about showing us 'your older GT's', filled with BH's. It's sad to see everyone turn their backs on perfectly good cars, with plenty to be proud of, and DECADES of life left in them.

This thread is for the "old" cars your perfectly good cars.

Post your car here if it's older than 10. That's not even out of elementary school! This is for cars where it's just you, the car, and the road. Driving how it used to be; no elctronic throttles allowed, no SI drive or TGV's. I want to see savage GC's, Dirty old BC's, and swapped BG's! Whatever it is, Post it up, as long as you are proud of it!

I'll get it started with this young pup, only 12, almost embarrassingly new for this thread! I want to see Version 2's, and BC rally cars!

Love it! Yeah most American are always about new new new, but many of us know how to appreciate the old. I'm rebuilding my 96 Impreza as I still feeling even brand spanking new American cars cannot hold up to it, hell I probably could have traded it in for a brand new Chevy Cobalt lol no thanks.

Beautiful Legacy though!

I don't care how old a car is, as long as it's in good condition and runs good what holds it back from still being a good car? I actually prefer older cars than new ones. I honestly don't think I'd ever buy a brand new car, lose so much money on them and imp I'd rather have a unique older car or somewhat new rather than a brand new car that anyone can go out and buy. Good thread sir.

a 10 year old car is pretty old, whether you want to believe it or not.

Great idea for those of us who've been in the cult since being little kids. I remember one of my teachers had an XT and I thought it was the coolest car ever. Full-on mini Automan.

Sadly it is true that Americans turn-over their cars all too fast.

Part of that is due to the advertisers assisting the automobile industry to 'convince' the consumer that their few-years-old car is really too old and that you need a 'new' car.

Another is that cars are so expensive that many don't buy but instead lease. Because of this, there is a high rate of turnover.

Another is many simply don't know how to or don't care to maintain their car over the long-run.

I think that this is simplistic at best, but makes a point.

I had a car for 11 years, 111,000 miles. My last one that I had for 5 years I gave to my sister when I bought the Subie. She still has it. It's going onto 10 years, but has only 65,XXX miles on it.

Buy it, love it, maintain it, keep it!

The biggest reason i think you don't see a ton of older subarus regularly on here is that we only got WRX/STi models (and the boosted/sporty Legacy & Foresters) starting in 2002 here in the US. That's when Subaru enthusiast culture in the US really took off. We don't have tons of GC WRX's n STi's cause we never got em. (and they are also still illegal to import in the US as well).

However, i'm still with ya on the whole "toss it in 5yrs" thing. Americans in general think a car closing in on 100k is done and on its way out. Retarded. Even my 04 STi has 110k. Then again, when it comes to a lot of American-built cars, 100k is "on the way out", and they'll start breaking as soon as the 50k warranty is up. Too many American's are also obsessed with having the "latest greatest thing" to show up their neighbors.

With that said: I don't have any old Subaru's anymore. Just one '02, one '04. I only moved to my STi because of the driveline. Nothing about the looks of an 04 made me want it. Hence why its fully dressed as a bugeye now at least...

Hmm. I used to have a few '00 RS's and a 98 RS > V5 STi swap.
My "old car" fetish is for MR2's. Can't wait to get my 24yo '86 mk1 running with her new 20v/6spd driveline. Here's my 17yo mk2 Turbo sitting pretty next to my old 03 WRX. Still looks better by far...
