Because racecar project

I been wanting a decent winter beater, my focus has been out of the game for over a year waiting on it's third engine. My mazda is my daily but its needs some much needed maintenance. So I got searching craigslist for a cheap under $1000 beater car to get by for now.

I came up on the beauty for $700. 97 Subaru coupe.

The guy who was selling said it was his sons old car it had a bunch of mods and was very well maintained mechanically. They was playing around in the wood one day a slid into a tree on the passenger side. The began to part the mods out and turn the car back to stock. He took it over and was using as a beater work car. He put a 2000# winch on the front to pull wood out of the woods and just had fun with it.

The interior is stripped and has two fiberglass racing seats, it has a aftermarket exhaust, and Koni shocks. The passenger door was replaced and works, it gonna need rear quarter, rocker, front fender and front bumper replaced. I plan to just use it as a winter beater now while I get some work done on the mazda then I'm gonna work on fixing it up.


AWD works amazing, engine runs smooth and it shift great, good heat and a/c. I was able to get it for $650 and its fun as hell to drive. I cant complain over all.


I've already got the rear bumper on, on the hunt for a front as of now.

It amazes me the deals you can find on CL if you are willing to spend a little time turning a wrench. Great find!

Congrats! Speaking from experience, I can tell you that is about the best winter beater you could have, especially at that price. How are the head gaskets?
