Re: New media outlets!

Crank Journal is fun because it's car nerds. No talking at length about new cars, or "current" topics, but it's all about what's in the classifieds, and iron that's out in the world.

I had a really fun time, and look forward to being on the podcast again in the future.

We talked about my history of Legacy and Outback, pre-Subaru and post-Subaru cars, and of course, Obscure Cars for Sale.

Re: Moscow, ID - Cusco front subframe brace. 90 shipped.

Back in 2001 the STi parts availability in North America was very weak, so I bought the CUSCO brace and the top mounts that were on the 93 wagon. It's far easier to get parts here nowadays, but that's not as fun as going to AUTOBACS and browsing the aisles full of tuner magazine parts on shelves.

Re: Apexi AVC-R Electronic Boost Controller $200

Good of Apex-i to replace the display. That was a great device. Probably got that in 2002, so it's 15 years old or so.

Was this the one from the 93 Wagon?

If so, I carried that one back from Japan. What a difference it made.

Re: Imporing a 25-year old JDM Legacy

The Legacy is/was a family car, in most every trim level save for the extreme versions. I'd be surprised if the Legacy didn't outsell the Impreza in Japan for many, many years, like it did here until the mid-2000s. The Legacy is more a volume-sales car, where the Impreza is, and the earlier models c...

Re: Imporing a 25-year old JDM Legacy

I looked into them yesterday, as Matt Farah on The Smoking Tire purchased his mint R32 Skyline GT-R from their California branch. They had no Subarus in stock, but that's not to say it's not a few phone calls away. Thanks for the tip though. If I get serious, they'll probably be the first place I co...

Imporing a 25-year old JDM Legacy

Now that the 89-91 (as of this post) Legacy models can potentially be imported to the United States legally, has anyone seen or heard of this actually happening? I've browsed a number of JDM importer sites, but they don't have any Subaru models whatsoever. This isn't a surprise, as the WRX and Impre...

Re: Contemplating about a replacement car

It took me a long time to get used to my wife's 09 Fit, but when I realized I'd made a poor decision on the OB XT, and that the BH OB was just as hopeless, it made sense to look for something almost completely different: No AWD, no boxer engine, lightweight, great mileage, beam rear axle, rear drum ...

Re: For the first time in...

Nissan doesn't make any appealing 5-door cars, and I'm a pretty die-hard wagon/hatch fan. Looked at the Mazda 6 wagon, but it's only got that awful 3L Duratec Ford engine, which is junk, though it was paired with a 5MT. Also (very) briefly mulled a Mazda 3, but I think it's got a bit too much engine...
