So coming back to work from lunch today, I saw one of these driving by. And it looked so much like my legacy wagon, until I saw the Toyota badge upfront. I got curious and after some research found this:
http://www.favcars.com/images-toyota-co ... 80x960.htm
http://www.toyota-global.com/company/hi ... index.html

Haven't found a good rear shot, but taillights looked very similar too.

So it looks like Subaru might've gotten some inspiration for the 1st gen Legacy from this here Corolla wagon. What do you guys think?

I feel like a lot of generations of cars look similar to each other. Last generation impreza sedans looked like a lot of things.

Plus, on the road, i always confuse old maximas for 1st gen legacys from the back.

Most of the Japanese cars from the 80s and into the early 90s all had that same look.

I think the post faces look too close to a Maxima for comfort!

This butt gets me every time. The license plate location, long continuous tail light and black trim with chrome sliver. The 1990 Acura Legend

Same here-only in the northeast-it's very disappointing not to see an actual 1st. gen. leggy anywhere but my driveway :(

My uncle had one of those 90 Acura Legends and yes they look very similar from the rear.

I spotted one tonight-not sure what year-had the side marker lights and the basket weave hub caps
