dont get an out back, they are ugly as hell. Get a newer fozzy, they look much better haha. And im surprised you cant find a newer wrx or sti in your price range. On the other hand 80% of the have probably been thrashed on.
the new foresters are huge and ugly, 02-07 is the best year for pretty much any impreza, OBS or forester imo. I wish i had a OBS or Forester xt instead of my WRX for camping/road trip space, but i could not have gotten as good of a deal.
