Hi and welcome! Our first Sub was an '81 GL hatchback. Our first impression was how much better FWD handled snow in Buffalo than all the RWD cars. That car was the first of a steady stream of Subs, now in its 37th year with our '17 Touring Forester, waiting for its first WNY Lake Effect storm. BTW, that question mark after your 4spd fits me also--our's was stick, but don't recall if it was 4- or 5-spd.
