    Peugoby's '95 Legacy L - SOLD

    ** Photobucket is the worst. I'll take the time to rebuild this thread one day. For now, here are some professional photos had taken of the car in 2016.

















    Story
    Hi All,
    I want to take some time to share my car and its unique history with everyone. My dad purchased this Legacy in June of 1995 from Thomason Subaru in Oregon City, Oregon. It served as our main family car for the next years until 2003 when it was replaced by a Honda CR-V. Throughout my childhood my family owned tons & tons of different automobiles. My dad, much like myself, cherishes cars & car culture and was always buying & selling rare French & German cars. The Legacy however, was always a staple in the family driveway. I have so many memories in it; fifteen years ago I took my drivers license test in it and passed first try. It was the first car I ever got to drive. My appreciation grew for the Legacy from there & in 2006 I bought my own '95 Legacy L AWD 5mt Sedan. I later bought a '91 LSi sedan, a '93 Sports Sedan (turbo) and an '09 3.0R Sedan. The love of the Legacy has been now a life long affliction.

    It has been driven all over the nation, including two cross country road trips, multiple trips to Canada, and hundreds of trips up to Mt. Hood... In 2006 my sister loaded the car up to finish grad school at Cornell University. Sadly, in 2010, the Legacy was stolen in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The car was recovered six months later and after a professional detailing, a new stereo & a new lock ignition set she was back on the road. After the car was stolen she herself went and bought a new (at the time) Outback Sport.

    Flash forward to 2012: I moved away to the east coast, and after spending a couple years time in Washington, DC I came back to the PNW and the wagon only to find it in complete disarray. My youngest brother had been driving the car into the ground for the past few years and the Legacy was very weathered. A CEL (PO420), leaky rear main seal, valve cover gaskets, and other various engine leaks were the least of my worries. It hadn't looked "good" since 2005, but the car looked totally beat. Dent's and scratches in every panel, stinky interior, stains. It was a total mess! My parents were moving to Boston, my brother to Japan and asked if I wanted to take over ownership of the Legacy. As you'll see below I of course said "yes!"

    Below is a timeline & mod list of everything I've done to the car. I don't ever plan on selling it. I just drove it down to Portland where it crossed 220,000 miles on the original engine and transmission. As of August, 2016 the car has received a complete Auto to Manual Transmission conversion and a small mountain of aftermarket Whiteline suspension components to keep the smiles coming for many years to come.
