    This brings back nice memories of them — they were wacky and very cool people to hang out with…the Subaru fit them perfectly. Other than that, the 4wd works like a beast!

When I got it the outside was in good shape but the inside was disgusting, as most repossessed vehicles are, so I took an entire day to hose out the dirt, cigarette funk, and mildew.

    COAL: Subaru GL Wagon – 4 Wheel Deadly

    First posted July 14, My brother called me one day with the news that the roommate of a good friend was selling a car and would I be interested?

    Somehow word had apparently spread that I seemed to consider buying anything and everything for sale…In actuality I had been complaining about having to deal with snow chains in the mountains on the few occasions that I actually went, and the car for sale was a 4WD Subaru….

    It was located in San Jose — about an hour away. When we arrived we were directed to the carport in which it sat. Looking at it from the back it looked OK, just a small dent below the 4WD badge and a cracked taillight. The left side had some minor scuffs but the right side had a fairly mangled front fender. The roommate just wanted it gone. And now I had what can fairly be described as an old car with a lot of miles on it.

    In this case a low price, 4WD and being a wagon were huge positives. I said it was a ; in reality it could have been anywhere from to , I just do not recall and no longer have any documentation. The picture at the top is my actual car, if anyone here can somehow identify the actual year, please make a comment. The front had the single square headlights as opposed to the earlier round ones or the later four-light setup.

    My future wife can sort of be seen just on the other side of it by the tree. I loved the fact that it was blue inside, and by that I mean it was blue all over the inside, in a way that nobody seems to do anymore. It was not particularly roomy, but big enough; the doors had frameless windows, there was a crappy radio that worked and a manually operated 4WD engagement lever.

    Once engaged, to disengage it I recall you had to push the lever down and reverse for a short distance, although that could have been a peculiarity of my particular car. Mine just had standard steel wheels, not the 8-spoke white steel ones that you used to commonly see on these. The one feature I wished it had but did not is the Cyclops headlight. This was a feature where a small portion of the front grille with the Subaru logo on it would flip upwards and there would be a smaller headlight mounted behind it.

    Very weird but interesting concept. The car was definitely slow as far as acceleration goes, but cruised fine if a bit loud with those frameless windows. That mangled fender helped a LOT in San Francisco traffic as when you needed to merge you just kind of started veering in the appropriate direction and one look at the fender would leave drivers of nicer cars i. This, like Subarus to this day, was powered by a horizontally opposed flat four cylinder engine; with 1. The 4WD system had a single range transfer case without a center differential so using it on dry roads was a no-no.

    We drove this thing a lot over the year or so that we had it, both in the city—thanks to no worries about dings and dents—and then also into the mountains. Boy, was it slow up hills!

    The odometer turned , miles as we were ascending Hwy 50 just past Strawberry on the way to Lake Tahoe loaded up with four of us and all of our snowboarding gear on the roof and in the back. Like the Energizer Bunny it just kept going and going. It never needed anything besides the two tires I mentioned earlier and some wiper blades while I had it. It had character, bags of it, and just worked well at its mission. His plan was to take it up to his cabin in Forestville Sierra Nevada foothills and attach a plow blade to it for his driveway.
