Go for an early 90s Impreza or Legacy with the 2.2L. 93-98 Impreza or 90-94 Legacy. Those motors are bulletproof and run forever!

^ agreed :biggrin: look for a 2.2L Legacy or Impreza, make sure you get AWD, some of those old ones were olny fwd. You will probably see lots of older loyale/legacy wagons at that price, maybe even a justy/chaser* if you want a bare bones beater.

*My sister-in-law had a 86 Chaser (GL for you non-Canadians :biggrin:) they traded it for $300 back before I got the subaru bug.. :tissue: could've been awesome;

+1 on a 2.2L. I'd probably go for something like an outback sport or other impreza from around 96. Pretty much anything but the ~97/98ish DOHC 2.5L models.
