My favorite is either a 4th or 5th Gen Toyota "Pickup"... Although the 1st Gen Taco is damn good too, the 2nd gen is good but I like them to be more narrow like the older ones. Better for trails methinks, narrow body you can always go wider track if you want...

I have now hopped on the bandwagon with all you subie owners. I bought a 1994 Legacy Turbo Wagon. If you're familiar with subarus this one has the rareish closed deck ej22 turbo motor with oil squirters and it has a low ratio JDM 5 speed manual swap and a limited slip from an 06WRX! Rebuilt the motor and it should fire up tonight. I have a 3" bellmouth downpipe and muffler in the garage ready to go in soon after too! Should be an awesome ride in the snow. Im so stoked!

Pics for sure coming soon. The beauty of it is I won't need a tune. the ECU on these cars are very adaptive and from the factory had such a safe tune that when you get them to breath a bit better they really open up. Somewhere down the road I'll need a tune, but Ill have bigger injectors, and a larger turbo before that will need to happen

I either use a Subara Legacy or I use a Mazda CX-7. But I'm also in the south west so those vehicles suffice.

Was drinking a few beers last night and originally read that as the engine was from a 06WRX. Not familier with the older engines though...sounds nasty Looking forward to seeing pics. Post some HP #'s if you have them.

Another shameless whoring of my Subaru....



She'll probably be retired from winter driving come this fall, I'll focus on making her the track car I've always intended. I'll be picking up a new daily driver as a replacement, I'm leaning towards an '05-'08 Outback or '06-'07 Forester. Need something a bit bigger and higher for my winter needs. I've always liked the Tacoma too, but I prefer fuel the better fuel economy of a car over a truck.

2008 GTI with winter tires...carried my two 6 feet plus ex-roommate all last season up and down Durango and Wolf Creek (lost my damn car key the first trip) without issue.

Haha, used to be a hater now I am a convert. 3 years later and I no longer own my Chevy Silverado Z71. I miss it but it had to go, too many problems kept arising and I could not afford to fix them all. So now I drive an '01 Subaru Forester, I love this car. I have yet to test it in the snow as I just bought it this July, but I can't wait to hear that crunch under the wheels. Currently has the saddles for my kayak mounted on the crossbars, it is summer after all!
