That's awesome! Does it have the rocket booster inside the hatch? <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

I drove '80's Subaru's through high school & college (BRAT's) and your's brings back lots of memories! What kind of mileage do you get with that swap? Very nice! You just don't see many of these anymore due to their lack of rust protection & non-existent factory engine HP.

I like the two-tone paint, gives it a better look than just satin black would. Nice job.

Thanks for all the great feedback. I'm hoping to add power steering this summer and put in an AWD set-up next summer. I'll keep everyone updated.
