For the first in five years I have been free from these cars.

I thought it would be a lower stress,cheaper lifestyle but I ended up missing these damn cars too much. The other night I'm browsing around craigslist and what are the odds I find someone who wants to trade a galant Vr4 for a car that I have.

the craigslist ad

Its so weird and specific, I don't think the majority of galant Vr4 owners would be looking to get into a swapped Impreza Rs, this is my destiny. The Jackstands have been collecting dust and I'm about to use those sombitches again real soon.
BTW, the car is #319/1000 if anyone has any info on it let a brother know. The owner seems to be legit and the hopefully the car is as advertised. If anyone is curious the RS has a Version 6 Sti type-RA EJ207 and a bunch of suspension goodies.
I tried subarus for a while and I just can't do it, I have no real attachment to it.

7 bolt, eh? Not sure how I'd feel about that.

Your Subie sure looks nice! Any pics of the rust free "surviver" Galant from NY?

7Bolt was a typo, It has a 6-bolt with forged pistons and H-beam rods..... Allegedly. I'll send the few pics I have in a bit. I am still skeptical about "no rust" on a northeast car but we will see. We're exchanging video tours of our cars this weekend and then we'll figure out a dollar amount. My RS seems to be a bit more of a project than this galant but I have to see it in the flesh.

Uncut bumper is kind of a good sign right?

Looks like a turd.

Hood is smashed, stock JDM wheels. Bet my ass the pinch welds are rusty, too. You'd probably get the punishment you're looking for with that trade.

Did you get a full mod list from him?

I love Galants, but there's no way I'd trade your clean RS for that. Is he offering cash on top of the Galant?

I don't have a more current photo of my RS, its not as pretty as it once was and its currently not running because I swapped the throttle body into my friends RS. His car has weisco pistons, FP Green, Balance shaft delete, ECMlink V2, Act clutch and thats about all I got for now. The galant still has AWS and supposedly no issues other than leaking throttle body shaft seals.

Stay tuned while I make a poor or wise financial decision.

Ah, that evens things out a bit then I suppose. As long as it's not rusty, it might not be a bad deal.















P.S. getting a Galant VR-4 is always a poor financial decision

They could be G-GSX wheels.

Funny. I'd want a swapped rs or forester if i had to trade. I don't find it odd at all, really. Do it!

He's been a ghost lately, I've sent video and pictures and nothing back yet. Maybe he went JSB
