20 years of Legacy Central

Post by DLC » Thu May 16, 2019 4:11 pm

I first posted about my 1990 Legacy L+ back soon after I got it in 1999. February 5th I posted the following:
I went in to the Q-Lube that I used to work at today. I changed the fluids in the rear differential, final drive and auto transmission. For a vehicle with nearly 90k miles, I don't think any of them have ever been changed. If they had ever been drained, it was some time ago, and they sure did need it again. There are perks with knowing the manager at a lube shop, you get great discounts (read: free) services that would cost you a lot otherwise. If you haven't changed the fluids in your boxes recently, do it, nothing is more important for the reliable operation of your AWD system than to keep clean fluid in them.
This year is 20 since I posted that. I haven't owned a Subaru for a few years now, for various and sundry reasons, but that doesn't mean I don't look at the nice Forester XT, BC Legacy, BP Legacy GT, WRX STI, or even the odd Crosstrek.

It started as something for me, and turned in to something for you. I'm good with that.

Thanks to Josh, all of the moderators, and the excellent community we've made here.

Agreed, out of all the communities that have come and gone and I participated in; this is the one I keep coming back to and is close to my heart. That is not only because I still have my 1990 Legacy, but because of the BBS's members. They make this community what it is.

Agree with it all. Such fond memories that I now have 2 more "BC"s. A '92 SS and a 93 n/a wagon :)

An endlessly helpful friendly community, solid cars that I am very familiar with now and know their quirks. My wife and I decided we don't want new cars anymore. Selling our newest car while it still holds some value and will daily the 2 Legacys instead!

I parted ways with my last first gen. Leggy-a BC last year-I'm in the middle of "rebuilding"-read-she was a very neglected GF '96 impreza. Close as I'll get to another first gen. Leggy. So, on that note-I'll still head to this AWESOME FORUM :-D

I haven't owned a 1st-gen Legacy in some 7 or 8 years. I still own a Subaru, but as I get older and my responsibilities continue to grow, my spare time for leisurely online surfing continues to dwindle. Thus, my activity here has all but dropped off a cliff, and it appears the same has happened for a lot of other longtime members, not to mention that online forums in general have fallen out of fashion.

Nonetheless, every once in a while, I will still type bbs.legacycentral.org into my browser.

It's partially out of a hard-dying habit, but mostly because I like seeing what others who are still active in the community are up to and because it remains the only online forum, automotive related or otherwise, that I feel like I can call home.

Even if it eventually has to just become an archive, I hope LegacyCentral never, ever goes away.

I know most do facebook-but, I don't-I enjoy the fourms

Dave and I both certainly want this site to remain and don't have any intentions of letting it fade away, even if it becomes more of an archive.

Still here and still on the road in my '92 L wagon...295k mi and counting!

Thanks to everyone who continues to be a part of this community - these cars are becoming rarer and rarer as are parts sources and the esoteric know-how of experienced enthusiasts. I'll be more active this summer as the Yeti goes into heavy maintenance to recover from three hard years on Great Lakes roads.

I enjoy the forum esp. the archive folder, its still a great resource packed full of facts and real life experiences of running an older model Legacy.
I'm into my 70's these days and still believe if someone made it I can repair/fix it.
In England there are less than 20 BC BF Legacy's left on the road,my BC was built in October 1991 but not registered until August 1992.
This forum provides a friendly advice to help owners keep their Legacy's on the road & who enjoy the occasional woosh in a Legacy BC Turbo.
Here's to the next 20 years.

Amazing that it has been this long. I've been here over a decade. With the invention of Facebook and groups being created like the 1st Gen/2nd gen legacy group and many other Subaru groups and my phone over taking the roll of my PC, I have been pretty absent. Recently I've started checking back in. I miss this forum. Hands down the best forum out there and I'm on 35-40 of them.

This was the first online community that I made myself a part of. Of all the others that I've browsed, and the few I've joined, it's still the best.
I've recently let my last first gen go off to car heaven, but I'll likely never stop checking in here. It also seems that I can't go too long without a BC in my life, anyway...
Thanks for everything you do, Dave, Josh, all the mods, and long-time and new users.
