Spotted a Crosstrek in the wild.
Its like YouTube but funnier and with more redneck. Link below, enjoy.
It’s so tacky, yet somehow so attractive.Pop ups, Long hood, Mid engined, *That* styling, what more could you want?!
After finessing the rear wheel wells with a hammer some filler was prudent, naturally it escalated into fixing dings in the doors, bumper, and quarter panels. Because:”While I’m at it...” Also got new taillights and an emblem.
The $600 examples are now $1200, and the $1400 examples are $2000. Also looks like less are for sale (based on my quarterly Bay Area Sc400 Craigslist browsing) I’m conflicted because I want their values to rise, but I also want to buy another one in the near-ish future.
Trying to finalize my turbo charge pipe situation, its currently 16.4ft 2" and 4ft 3" pipe, if that dosent sound efficient its because its not. I need to figure out what sizes to use and I’m not sure how velocity figures in. Ideas are appreciated.
In Summary: 79 in a 65, no points because of Traffic school, RIP wallet.
Started on here when I was 15, its been over 4 years now. Post meaty tires and project cars.
The sc400 is truly diabolical, interior temp was 115°F even though its 78° outside. Floor pan under the gas and brake pedals; 180°. Felt like death by the time I got home. Good news is there might be some video to illustrate the twin turbo v8 noises in the future
An interesting article after the jump, Basically painting a car with Rustoleum, foam rollers, then wetsanding, and buffing.
I doubled the torque, power to weight ratios right around 9, but now I’m eyeballing water Methanol injection and more boost.
I appreciated this, I’m sure everyone here will too.
I don’t have anything against EBay turbo builds, but pretending one is worth actual money is a stretch.

The cars down for a small makeover so it’s time for some aesthetic bits. More after the jump.
