I'm sure many have seen this on Facebook, but for everyone else, might as well post this here.
I picked up this 98 Subaru Outback for $650. It's got 209k on the chassis and a blown head gasket, but is in otherwise fantastic shape. I'm on my third day of working on it and nearly ready to replace both head gaskets.
You'll notice the tow bar on the front. The previous owner (the second owner) bought the car with 150-160k on the odometer from a guy who towed it around on the back of an RV. The odometer and speedometer are mechanical on this car, so when the car is moving, it's racking up miles... So much of the first 150k of this cars' life was spent being pulled. This really showed when I got to the camshafts, as they look absolutely fantastic, even have some of the factory machining marks on the lobes still.
Work done so far on the engine:
I love me a good project car thread.
