For the last 3 years I've been working on resurrecting a beat-up 2000 Impreza 2.5 RS Coupe. It's had quite the transformation from rust bucket to rallycross champ. I've really grown attached to the car in that short time, but I've come to slowly realize that I need a cleaner car. By clean, I mean not 16 years of rust and rot and neglect and patchwork body repairs. However, finding a suitable replacement here in the midwest has been nearly impossible. These older Subarus have not survived the harsh winters and even harsher chemicals put on roads here in Nebraska. Rusty quarter panels seems to be as sure of a thing as leaky head gaskets on these old Subies.
However, I've managed to find a suitable replacement to swap a few things over and continue to grow and improve with. Hidden away in Washington State I managed to find a 1999 Impreza 2.5 RS Coupe... same color and everything, just no rust. In fact, the car is in awesome shape and is more than ready to take up the mantle of my previous project car. However, the story of this RS Coupe has a more interesting start than that.
I wish I could attend the whole rally, but I have to work that Saturday. I'll be hitting the road, driving through the night to make it there, get some rest, check out some of the rally, get the car, and head home with it. What an adventure I've got coming! I'm pretty stoked to have this cool of a story linked to a car I'll be picking up. What a way to start a new project!
