SLW-SVT Posted October 1, 2018 Share Posted October 1, 2018 (edited) My original Outback had been sitting for a year after i broke the timing belt. It has been stripped of all the upgrades and sent to the bone yard. This 1998 has been showing itself on Facebook Marketplace and i watched the price go from 2400 to 1900 over the course of a few weeks. I finally called him up and told him that I would come and buy it if he would take 1500. Went to look at it and wow, so much better shape than the old 97. No rust, relatively decent condition on the inside and the body was in great shape. I offered him $1400 after some haggling and drove it home. Had 214k on it.

Serious detailing The old 97 when I brought it back from my inlaws house to strip it down. It really was a rust bucket http://i632.photobucket.com/albums/uu48/eocullins/97%20Outback/PNPmSVcWQZSjwnOnLIydFw.jpg Thats it for now. Will be slowly working on this thing to get it fit for driving back and forth to work. Edited August 1, 2020 by SLW-SVT Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
