my uncles weekender, set him back a pretty penny or two

honestly if the wrx just isn't doing it for you anymore, it must be time for a change, so long as the right cruiser becomes available at the right price i'd say go for it

see if this works, first time attempting to post images...



Success...now try

lol, it wouldnt really be that much different to owning and modding the rex. Plus I own the STI so it would be a matter of selling and buying a cruiser

Some damn nice cars your family has, my folks were happy to get a 1400 motor into their Datsun 1200 so needless to say when I came home from buying a Mitsubishi Express van with a XYGT instead I wasn't too popular

But back on topic, I know it's considered blasphemy modding an old car but if you plan on driving it regularly then I'd recommend swapping out the carby (or carbies) with a bolt-on EFI setup so you don't have to go through all the crap that old cars make you go through when you are late for work and just want to turn the key and drive

Just remember that your STI is 5 years old (judging from your profile) compared to car that is 30/40+.
Unless you're happy having a muscle shitter, you will most likely need to invest a lot of money to make it a fanny creamer.

Even if you get a car that is mechanically sound, it's all the small things that can add up or at the very least just annoy the piss out of you (crappy interior, dodgy door seals, creaky doors, fucked switches etc)

Yeah, I owned a B4 before the STI that I put 4 different motors into 3 different GBs, 8 Battery's and a shit tin of other money into. I don't mind the work, as I can actually work on older cars and also it won't be a daily. But I know what your saying, it would be a labour of love rather than a mode of transport as we still have the Missus Xtrail
