I'm willing to bet they are the most popular Legacy's to date. It seems successful mid size cars need to: A) look like a Camry. B) expand to completely dwarf their original size class. And C) completely abandon the enthusiast niche.

Anyway, B4 looks great!, especially at night.


That's the 2010-2014 Legacy.....yes it looks exactly like a Camry (fugly) and yes it's huge.



I was 100% sure that was a Camry!

And James614, the Legacy since the 4th gen has always been quoted as looking like a Camry unfortunately.

The 4th Gen didn't really suffer from it IMO. But then again the 4th Gen still had the very un-Camry 2.5GT and wagons. If the current 2.0GT/Touring Wagon came stateside I don't think the Camry sentiment would be nearly as strong.

I couldn't make it... I was working that day.

The weather was pretty crappy too, but it looked like it was an awesome meet nonetheless. Sorry I missed it!

My God, it's been nearly a year and a half since I've updated this thread.

After replacing the timing belt, the clutch (same pull-style as an EJ205 WRX), the struts (using ZF Sachs struts for a USDM BE chassis Legacy; I will try to have Bilstein USA rebuild my originals), and the saga with the leaking rear differential (4th time's a charm I guess), I took the B4 on an unforgettable road trip where I drove the entire length of US 441, from Miami, Florida to Rocky Top, Tennessee. No interstates or turnpikes allowed.

The night before I got on 441 in Miami:
Image

Few things make me happier than an open, deserted two-lane road through nowhere:
Image

I took it camping in Paynes Prairie outside of Gainesville, Florida:
Image

I stumbled upon an old, deserted gas station:
Image

Through Georgia, US 441 is a scenic and historic highway (also, hello officer!):
Image

On the scenic parts of US 441 on the border between North Carolina and Tennessee:
Image

As an added bonus, after I finished US 441 and headed to Nashville, she hit 100,000km:
Image

It was the best vacation and road trip of my life, and I'm planning another even more grandiose one hopefully in the next couple years!

Glad you had such a great time!

I'm pondering a relatively epic road trip myself, but it wouldn't take place until summer of 2018.

Beautiful car and amazing scenery. Sounds like a blast.

That looks like a blast. I plan on doing similar one day. How did you keep the car so immaculately clean the entire way? Did you keep a clay bar and wax kit with you?

I actually only ran the car through two car washes on the trip. One on the south end of Georgia and one when I got to Nashville. I actually have video from my dash cam somewhere of the car going through the car wash in Nashville at the hands of the personnel there and them flipping out over it being right-hand-drive.

Tony, I can't promise anything about making it to the Mega Meet next year. If I think I'm gonna go I will let you know.
