History
My DD turned Weekend Warrior SCCA autocross car.

The story starts off around September of 2007 when I purchased a 1992 Legacy Sport Sedan from a friend who was in the process of shipping off to Korea to be an MP for the Army. He had been working towards the use of a T3/T4 turbo and a very small FMIC. This did not seem like the best combo and I decided to scrap most of his progress and start over in the direction I felt was best for me.

Seemed like a great deal until the more I worked on it, the more body started to show it's true colors (rust color). I came to find out that a LOT of deep rust was covered up and filled in by many pounds of Bondo. I took a closer look under the car and the rot was far beyond what I expected.

So I put the project off while I could figure out if swapping the parts to another car would be best or just try and fix what I had sitting next to my garage. As it would happen, waiting paid off big time in the form of another Legacy SS in PA, but this one would require being trailered home because the transmission only had reverse and even that was on it's last legs. He let the car go for very cheap because he needed money for college classes & books, along with the fact he had acquired over 10 Subarus and his father wanted most of them gone ASAP!!!
