I present you the "Hello Kitty Lincoln Towncar".

This rare beast was photographed in beautiful suburban Homer, Louisiana a couple of months ago:

Oh, and how about a 2.5l Outback automatic. Stock drive train, no low range, stock rims and tires. But he has STI decals, a snorkel and an axe.....

Hey G-man, I saw a Subaru WRX wagon outside of the Framingham Auto Zone that had driving lights mounted inside the air scoop.

Hell yeah, i kinda like that. It's the lesbian edition of a GS. All dressed out, underpowered, overgeared, overweight, and the wrong tool for the job. Still probably fun though

Hard to get a better angle without trespassing, and the trailerhouse was right next door, so I just snapped this quickie and left.

The flames go the wrong way.



For what it's worth, the flames on the other side went the right way.

If you go to the "Wicked Big Meet" (Largest NA Subaru gathering, held at Wachusett) you'll see about everything, from Foresters with complete STI drivetrain swaps (and no badges!)


to these:







As well as the real deal: VT Sportscars builds the SOA rally cars.


Now, who has some pics of pickup trucks with giant stacks in the bed? I saw one last week in NH that had two - and a gas engine....
