So I sold the GTB & got myself a 1992 Gen 1 RS wagon.

Had to drive out to albury to pick it up. She was unrego'd so I took a car trailer & towed it back.

Shes not in the greatest of shape, sun damage on bonnet (clear coat peeling) & the roof was in a bad way but ive managed to polish it out (but needs some more work). Some small rust spots under the mirrors on both front doors (very common in the gen 1's). But over all not too bad for a 21 year old car.

Its missing some interior parts - passager sunvisior, the 1.5 din dash piece. Its has wires everywhere from some sort of sound system. An amp under the passager seat not connected to anything. I will get a small system back in there soon.

It has a few mods already done:
3 inch turbo back exhaust
Big BOV
Front mount intercooler (piping will need re-doing it dodgie)
4 pot brakes up front, standard rears with slotted & drilled discs (unknown pads)
Wrx seats
Dual stage boost controller
Boost gauge
Shift light.

Planned mods:
Really good clean & tidy up.
Bonnet respray
New tyres - tomorrow
Coilovers BC BR's - tomorrow.
Sound system (maybe a tablet type install)

Its a fixer-a-upper but runs really well. Im looking forward to get her back to her former glory.

I like it!


As soon as she hands it to you, slowly take of your pants, then, while staring her straight in the eyes rub it against the tip of you penis, while continuing your painfully intense gaze whisper to her;
 
"My eye is watering, this might be a bit hot"

I should just convert to single, right?

You need a pink badge for the grille so people respect yo!

 

Glad to see a nice machine in the hands of a non P plater and look forward to some quality mods.

 

 

 

Congrats Simon.

Looks good bro.

I like to think of it as borrowing someone's car and driving it better than them.

Nice Simon, once it's all tidied up you'll love it to bits :)
The rust under the mirrors is quite common yeah, I've already had one side fixed on mine but now the other side has started...ugh. Apparently there's a bit of foam under the mirror or something that soaks up water and holds it there, causing the rust problems.
