New member, "new" Baja.

Post by ZUBAJA » Wed Apr 18, 2018 4:47 pm

Hey gang, new here. When my beloved 1989 Isuzu 4x4 Spacecab burned up last month, the best replacement seemed to be a Subaru Baja. Picked up this 2003 / 195K miles 5 speed stick Sport last week. Owner couldn't drive a manual any more so they found an identical automatic model, and offered this one for sale. I had 43 pages of build thread on Planetisuzoo on the Spacecab over the 6 years I had it. Also have 3 Foresters. A 98 (170K - Daughter's), a 2002 (221K second daughter's), a 2005 (105K wife's), and had a 2006 (wrecked by a drunk @ 209K). Did heads and rings on the 06, did heads on the 98 (DOHC). All Subaru Family now.
Plans for Baja: getting a hitch this weekend, a mild lift (at least the front) in the not too distant future. Dennis
