At first, this 40,433-mile 1985 Subaru GL surprised us by popping up in Phoenix, Arizona. What does a state need with a quirky, all-wheel-drive hatchback if they don’t even know what a snowflake is? But it makes sense that such a cream puff would only survive in a winter-less wonderland. Northerners bought these to drive into the ground, and most Yankee Subies have been returned to the earth in flakes of iron oxide.
The owner is our kind of guy. It says right there in the ad that only true enthusiasts need apply, all others can shove off. And if none step forward, he’ll find it a good home at a dealership. Kidney, anyone?
