Hey, guys. Had my Legacy about 10 years now I think. I bought it with 87k miles for $1750. Since then
it's done thousands of miles off-road through Florida's Green Swamp area and recently Ocala. I can't
really remember how stock it is at this point since I've had it for a long time, but it's up on Outback struts
and has some custom-ish suspension components and WRX wheels with street tires. I have a Cobb exhuast
on it and probably some more crap, but I just cant remember. Either way, I love this car. There have been
times that I didn't care so much for it over the years and abused it, but I do love it today. Even my wife loves
it and it made an appearance in our wedding photos :D


The morning after I bought it (maybe 2008-2009?)

It's gone through lots of iterations since then. Some more embarrassing than others (like the time I mounted
6 circular fog lights to the bumper in a row) but lots of pictures were just lost to time.

This is the most recent picture I have of it with the glass headlights and stuff.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the things people have done and maybe get some cool
ideas

It's hot though. Real hot. Preservation comes at a high cost, it seems

Welcome to the club! Beautiful BF Legacy. They age so well. Subaru's 22G red always stands out. They even used it in the VAB STI.

Thanks a lot, guys :) It actually took me years to learn to love the red
as I never wanted a red car. I almost considered not buying it, but it
does clean up pretty nice.

Not sure at this point. I remember having the 14" wheels for a while
and then I went with a few different sets of WRX wheels and a few
Forester ones at a point. They looked hilarious, drove it like a boat,
but the extra ground clearance was fun. Not sure what size tires were
on these, but they seemed bigger than stock
