History
Purchased Sept. 2016 for $500 off Craigslist. Right off the bat, the car needed *lots* of serious work - broken exhaust, ABS warning light on, one non-functional headlamp, a missing RH fog lamp, a shredded Driver's Seatbelt (replaced under Subaru Lifetime Warranty), all tie rod ends were shot, oil pan & valve covers leaked oil, A/C needed a freon recharge, &c... Just an old-ass car being beat on by a couple of college kids before I stepped in & rescued her.
