1986 Subaru Brat, bought for $750 in Dayton, OH. Previously a Florida car, and came with an unfinished OBD-II EJ22 swap. I'm tidying it up as I drive it and plan to lower it and make it an unusual auto-x/track car.

+2001 Impreza EJ22 swap +M.Rose EJ22 adapter plate +EA82 dual-core radiator (complete with hillbilly hose "reducers")

Future plans: XT6 5-speed and 5-lug suspension, giving me 4-wheel disc brakes and the ability to run tons of wheels and more suspension aftermarket. Eventually I will undertake the expensive 05+ Legacy suspension conversion that's really popular in Australia.
