So it would be unfair for me to post in the VIC forum but not here... so I thought I'd post up what I drive.

No, it's not a Ford :P but I guess it ain't a Holden.
It's also not a RWD car. :D
It also doesn't have fifty gazillion killowatts at the wheels... but it has a fair bit of handling mods done to it, and for a lux-o-barge it handles surprisingly well :D

Many moons ago I owned a Liberty RS Turbo with an enhanced chip by MRT Performance in it. Went like a cut cat and went round corners like it was on rails. Would love one of the newer B4's to play with but the $$$$ are the problem, hence the Henry's......

One bloody nice looking Liberty there, well done

Cheers
RD

love the style, hate the engine sound, and hate the interior space.

Missus has a 99 liberty, and it has about 50% more psace i reckon, much more useable. but yes its slow as s**t :wink:

I hate the fact that the rear seats don't fold down. I mean, seriously, a f##king ski hatch?!

I just can't work out why Aussies call Legacy's, Liberties... Or do you guys have Legacy's too, and the "Liberty" is some god forsaken reference to Pauline Hanson shooting the Queen? And thank christ NZ gets Japan made Soobies and you guys get Aussie poofter ones! When I next own / write off and Subaru, it will be listed on Aussie E-Bay for sure. Don't know why, how or when, but you Aussies seem to buy a lot of bits from wrecked NZ Soobies.

Don't ask me. I don't understand either.

There must be something with the Japan made ones that you Aussies like.....?

I don't know why they were called Libertys over here, Legacy is way cooler.

Tangcla, I've seen this before during my OzCelica days. Sex!

If I remember correctly and the Blue ST205 was yours, that thing was f**k gorgeous too.

The Legacy name is owned by the Aussie R S L, so no one else can use it.
