Just the thing for a quick jaunt over the Rimutakas.
Really enjoying the wagons in this thread. I always look at the Caprice/Road Master wagons and think about building a "sleeper". Dream about getting a Facon/Torino wagon and throwing my 460 in too.
Those Subaru XT always have a soft spot for especially since you can get a manual transmission in them.
Currently been driving this Chrysler/Dodge POS quality though I like the looks and how it drives on the highway. The get-up-n-go is fun too.
I have to say this car is better in the snow than the '00 Outback I had given this weighs 4300 lbs and is rear wheel drive bias AWD. Still does not compare to a 4x4 Truck.
Had fun with PD, but removed it. I still kind of liked that look though.
Coming home from an enduro:
Alright, I will return to lurking on this website.
No XT since '09. There's a reason I bought mine...I saw the announcement of the '10 redesign of the Outback, and called the dealer right-quick-like, to grab the last 5sp XT he could get his hands on.
the current XT Forester gets 25mpg combined with close to 250 HP. Why they don't offer that in the Outback is bizarre as it's a noticeably under powered wagon and gets about the same MPG as the Forester Turbo.
Funny thing how those "flame surfaced" lines that don't work imho, look fantastic with the touring body. That D pillar makes all the difference.
Freinds brother in law has an e 61 with the n55 and a 6speed manual trans. The kicker of the whole package is the windsheild sticker that states "automatics are for corvettes"
if i had jay leno money, the aston martin i'd want would not be a modern supercar. it would be this old shooting brake.
i bet it makes a pretty oil stain on the garage floor.
On the Monroney sticker??
And I didn't think anyone at BMWNA had a sense of humor....
Looks like an Edsel from the front.
yeah-if i couldn't afford this, a similar car would be 57 plymouth. only the plymouth would be 8/7ths scale to the Aston.
I put a bunch of miles on my Magnum pulling a couple bikes around. I really liked that car. Mine had the 5.7 and AWD. Looks like yours has the AWD rims... Is it?
I had 400k on it when I parked it. I never thought that the build quality was poor.
I'd recommend getting overload shocks for the back if you're hauling/towing frequently. The IRS with that combination can eat up expensive tires rather quickly when the camber is out a bit.
The 4cyl ranger I have now gets better mileage so I've been burning the wheels off of it.
No no, it was his add on.
This is the same guy who has a blower on a late model marauder. Got to drive that once, the blower whine with wide leather seats just seemed so wrong it turned into a right.
Found this on craigslist.
1959 Ford Ranchwagon It has a 557 cid motor with twin 76mm turbos and is intercooled and fuel injected. C6 automatic trans with a manual shift valve body, 4 wheel disk brakes, 4 corner air bags, onboard compressor and air tank,....
He claims 800 foot pounds and hp varies with boost.
Seems like a hoot!
Love V70XC's. I just had a ten day rental of an S60 four door. If the coming v60 wagon version has similar performance it's going to be a lot of fun.
Couldn't build it for that, more than likely. At least not without a big garage, lots of equipment, and some mad skills.
Especially if you had to pay somebody to do it...
Not meh favorite color... but looks like a blast.... at least in a straight line....
White/off white upper, red below belt line/trim.
Turning would be... interesting. :huh
