    Had 3 Subaru wagons before my first (now on third 4WD) Tacoma... Great cars... at least back in the late 70's and 80's when they were still 4WD and not AWD! '77.5 1600cc, '80 & '86 1800cc.

    X2 on keeping the Subie!
    When I paid off my 05RS last year I got Taco right away... but I'd never give up my Scooby. I'm hoping to give it to my Niece as her first car in 5 years, if she holds out that long - @185xxxkm, so far so good. My nephew will get the Taco a couple years later, if I'm done with it...
    Enjoy that truck, I'd love a 1st Gen...and your WRX :D

    Welcome from Oklahoma. I had a 95 Impreza. Unfortunately, I could not find many parts for the 2.2 and I didn't feel like dropping the money on a 2.5.

    they are definitely fun little cars. I picked up an 07 tacoma trd new, but realized how much stuff I wanted to do to it and would rather set up an "off road" vehicle thats actually paid off so I got rid of it and waited. Plus it wasnt even 4x4 just had the locking diff.. woo! Rocked the soobie in the mean time.

    I was in Pennsylvania, but once I commissioned the Army decided that Fort Sill was the place for me. Once my initial 3 years are up, I will be looking for a slot somewhere in the MD/VA area. It's a little difficult to go saltwater fishing in OK.
