1st Gen New to the Neighborhood

How is everyone doing? Just joined today and looking forward to learning even more about the 1st gen platform. I live in Des Moines and recently sold my WRX and became the proud owner of this super clean '98 Forester S 5-speed w/ 130K original miles. I traveled 250 miles to go fetch her and it was totally worth it because it looks like she just came out of a time capsule.

No leaking head gaskets
Timing belt service was done 3 years ago
Zero rust

Damn, that looks real nice. Wish I could have found one like that.

The higher, the fewer.
