Older Outback Pics!
How about we start showing some older Outback pics? I want to get some ideas for mine... Anybody have Legacy GT wheels on theirs?

This is the only one I have available, I'll post more later:

I just bought it about two months ago... It has a rebuilt JDM motor (same as the USDM) with about 70,000 miles on it. The old motor made it to 220,000! It was mainly highway mileage, but she took damn good care of it. Original owner, all service records, never wrecked. Paint and interior look like a 50,000 mile car. I got lucky with this one. All I had to do was replace the clutch when I bought it.

I've done a few things to mine...

G-forces are off the car, some new hyper black Torques with 235's are in the back of the car waiting to go on and it's rolling on the gold Boosts again.

Car has now had 21 sets of wheels and it's been a 7-year project, so you can check my long-winded build thread on my other board if you're curious about specifics, or jsut ask ;)

That looks killer! I'm looking to put my LGT wheels on my OB and do an intake, header, and exhaust. I also like those JDM side markers and the front end treatment. I don't want to do too much as it is my daily driver and I have my LGT to play with...

Ok I just saw the pic of your JDM tails... I want those, too! Where did you get those?

sybir 08-25-2007 02:22 PM

The JDM tails are pretty common on ebay these days (used to be much harder, heh). Search for "legacy jdm" and you come up with a set or two for under $200.

Hops 08-25-2007 10:27 PM

I couldn't find any taillights but I did come across a JDM twin turbo motor... I wonder how hard that would be to do? I skimmed through your thread on that other forum... Did you ever get that WRX motor in?

Long story (very) short, no. Ended up going a different way after my relations withthat shop went a bit south and it went under.

I bought this instead (still have the wagon, too)

It's now wingless, and has a few other bits coming.

Back to OB pics, I'll post when I get the new wheels on the wagon tomorrow.

Sweet. Looking nice...

Don't know if any of you guys followed the 24 Hours of Lemons race a couple of months ago, but some of the SoCal LGT guys (myself included) campaigned a 98 OB. We killed the motor in short order due to overheating, but we'll be back for the October race. In the brief time we were out there, we were passing everything in sight. Here's the car:

Holy sh!t that is bad ass! Got anymore pics? Do you know if I can transfer any parts to my 98 OB from my 05 LGT?
