$0 --> Stage Ready < $5k? (or under 5 years...)
For fork's sake, I think I have a problem....I'm Dan, and I'm an Impreza addict...
I picked this up this afternoon:
It's a wee bit long-in-the-tooth, but for the price, it can't be beat. I troll craiglist all the time (not like that, pervert!) and these deals pop up occasionally. This one happens to be a 2nd owner, since 10k miles, regular-old 98 Impreza wagoooon. Owned by some nice old bat up in Mass.
The Specs: 212k on the ticker, 2.2liter, 5 speed, awd, clutch shot, rear quarters snotty and patched with fiberglas.
What do I do with it?
Option 1: Rallycross?
Option 2: a second stage rally car? If I go this way, I'll most likely snag a SafeDrives cage and document it as a "how cheap can you hit the stages if you have tools and a welder and a drill press" (leaning this way)
Or, a $2012 Grassroots challenge car?
Either way, this thread will document its transformation from one of the absoultely filthiest cars I've ever seen, interior wise......I gotta explain....it is soooooo nasty inside, looks like a bunch of drunk smurfs used it for a frat house for the last 14 years...
anyway, it's being dragged back to Abington Rally HQ, my garage, on Saturday and the evaluation will being. More pics, for those with strong stomachs, when it gets here.
This does not do the squallor that is this interior any justice...
So those 15" steelies have pretty new tires on them, they'll be first up for sale to finance this beotch.
