Thumbs up

Do you know what the Pine Barrens Express is? Have you ever driven on the sandy forest trails in the Pine Barrens? The PBX is a fast, very rough, challenging TSD rally in South Jersey and a couple of friends of mine won their class in a stock Justy in 1998. Tough little car.

you come to the right place my friend. i have 2 yes 2 1988 Subaru Justys. a white one and a silver one. they are both 4wd and 5-spd.

the justy is a very good tossable car. a guy up here rallies one in the Canadian Rally Championship and he consistantly wins production 1750 with no problem like by sometimes a minute.

they are relatively well built and with some reinforcement they could be very good. check out this link and the video at the bottom and see what he did with his justy http://pages.infinit.net/cohara/

in terms of power. well not that much. they are a 3 valve per cylinder design so they do have some potential. the problem is that the stock carb sucks stangles the engine. with a bigger carb, header, and exhaust i think you could have 100 hp. the stock is 66 hp @5200rpms. and 70ft.lbs of [email protected] If you are really ambitious and i have thought about it several times and i think a turbo and intercooler set-up from a swift would bolt up and provide some serious HP. i think 125 hp with a turbo is a good number.

OK i talked enough about justys email me at [email protected] if you want any more information. i know everything about these little cars!!

I had a 1988 awd justy. It was a real kick ass car to drive off road and on the real tight paved twistys DOWN HILL.

Here are some pics of it.

I beat the crap out of it. I put over 200,000+ miles with no major break downs, only routine maintenance.

I now have a 1999 2.5rs Imprerza
