Well I think i might do it

I was thinking about letting my Scooby become my project non-daily driver car and have acome across a very good deal.

I found a 92 GSX with clean body(very minor dent on the pass door and a small spot of rust), new clutch and recent engine rebuild for only 1000. Granted I need to do some work to it before It is drivable, turbo is bad and the Balance shaft needs to be done away with.

I have joined our sister site to try to find out as much as possible before I make my decision but what do you guys think? Do this sound like a pretty good deal?

So your planning to use the GSX as the daily driver. I say the WRX will be alot more reliable. Get something like an older RS or something. Just my .02 though...

Man, go for it. DSM's get a bad reliability rap from people that don't maintain them properly. I had mine for a couple of years without any major problems from it at all. It even had the 7 bolt in it, ooohhhh crankwalk, yeah whatever. I miss that car bad. That thing was so sick. It was far from stock though.

Check out www.vfaq.com and www.teamnabr.com as well. If you do decide to get it, let me know. I can help you with it some.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

You know what "DSM" means, right?

I realize that but I always have my scoob if it does break down. Like I said it is kinda a project car. After working on my friends Conquest(a lot of the DSM free mods worked on it as well) I feel like I could have some fun with a cheap car. plus I save miles on Ol blue for if I every decide to trade it in or sell it.

Don't hate. !Laugh! You guys all know deep down inside that you want one. The reliablility of the Subaru gets old after a while. !Laugh! You know, turn the key and it starts every time, that's for the birds.

Just playing.

My Aunt and her son and daughter are all about their DSMs. My mom and myself are all about the Subies. It's funny because we get in these family feuds.
