Default The Green Bomb: My Daily Beater

I figured I'd start a little picture thread of the little Impreza that I use as a winter beater/daily driver/work truck while the Foz is under construction.

1995 Impreza base (auto) 205,000miles
Lifted on FXT struts and springs
Tires and wheels from an outback
Back seat removed for hauling metal

Back in the fall of 2015 when I had just got Ol' Silver, my dad bought the Green Bomb from a coworker. Here it sits with a bunch of foresters during the engine swap. The FXT should look familiar if you follow me on Instagram:

Later that year we lifted it on my Forester's old struts when I went to the Hotbits:

Then summer of 2016 it saw its first mud excursion on a little family trip:

In June or something of 2016 is when I bought it from my dad when my parents moved to Wyoming. These were my three subies:

From then on out i've been driving and adventuring in the Green Bomb, and recently I sold the racecar (96 imp with EG33 and WRX drivetrain) so now I'm down to two. Here was last fall:

Everytime we got some fresh snow, we were sure to go out and get stuck somewhere:

This was a late weekend night at Murphy Dome:

The TREDS kicked a$$ like always. After backing out of the hole, I realized that the radiator fans weren't working and it was overheating:

We had some water in a HooDoo Growler which made for a funny picture:

We also use the car for pulling snowboards and powsurfers:

And lastly, my most recent pic:

Hope you guys enjoyed the adventures in this little guy. I had to do SOMETHING with all of the photos I've taken of it, so I figured this would be good.
