-- She's Gone --

So the SVT that I have owned for the past 6 years has been sold. It's a sad day to see her go but I'm a dad now and I need something 4-door with a little more room.

As for the SVT, I built her up myself with some help from local fanatics and all of you in this community and over on FJ. Thanks to everyone in the community for their help, how-to's and cheap parts

Here are just a few pics from my gallery, imagine some break up tune playing while you look at these ...










The car sold in about 12 hours to a buyer who owned an SVT before and wanted another. I directed him to this site and he has lurked around a little already, perhaps he will post up and introduce himself.

As for me, I am on the search for my family sleeper ... a Forester XT. They are 2.5L turbo's that are only about 30lbs more than a WRX and while I know it won't handle like the SVT, it will certainly show the same hustle and I will have something more suited for my Colorado - outdoorsy lifestyle.

Again, thanks to you all for your help. The community here is awesome and I only hope I find one equally as great on the subie side.

That is quite sad...good look with your search though, I hope you find a good one.
On a side note, there is a guy that auto crosses a Forester in my club and that dude is FAST! And its completely stock to my knowledge, so that car has a very capable platform.

What a beauty of a SVT to let go. Good luck with your new car. I feel like I am watching those "Swifer" commercials ...

The SVT will start playing "BABY, COME BACK

there is hope! I have seen one around here on STI springs, but I think eventually I would do coilovers on it, lightbar, etc. Toughen it up a bit.

Ah man.
That's gotta be tough, but I can see your need to move on.
