    radu416's 2005 OBK

    This car found me in a funny way, and it's got a weird story, but I'll reserve that for another post.

    My goal is to make this into great-handling, comfortable, winter capable, parts hauler, daily and exploring machine. This won't be the "fun" car. I won't be turning this into a sleeper, it won't be turbo swapped, RWD converted or any other such things.
    I recently moved to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and there are lots of places to explore. The roads here are twisty and fun, but not too technical. Handling and being able to stop are a high priority. Fuel economy and comfort is also important as I often do long-distance trips, and the trunk needs to be able to handle anything from airport pickups and camping, to serious junkyard hauls. Being able to see at night is a priority, as is the ability to drive on gravel roads, bad pavement, and snow.

    It's a 2005 Outback Base. It's manual and at the time I got it had over 420,000 kms. It was cheap. I am the 7th or 8th (and last) owner of this car.
    This is what life with it has been like so far...
