Ever since I have been into Subaru’s I have wanted a 4x4 Justy. Last Christmas my wife gave me Rusty She bought him off of her Brother’s roommate for $500. Included in the sale were 2 sets of steel wheels, a complete 2nd engine (<future turbo build ) and a box of assorted parts. All I can say is I love my Wife

This car is currently serving as my DD until my OBS is back on the road. I own several Subaru’s, but this one is in all honesty my favorite, lol. Well, enough chit-chat, on to the good stuff .

The day I picked Rusty up.


The trek to Rusty's new home


PO abused Rusty a little. He was used as a DD to the Cripple Creek Mines, HORRIBLE road to DD cars on.


Dirty

You should have had it, but then again it may just be the rebadged Suzuki Swift in Justy clothing Over here the Swifts were known as Geo Metro's and Suzuki Swifts, only none of those are 4WD.

They are around from time to time, but are beginning to be a sort of collector's item, lol. The price of gas in the states has made most folks flock to the 30+ MPG vehicles. I am averaging about 40 MPG right now. I hope to be in the 60 MPG range before long, but that will require me adapting a piggyback ECU and other items. They used to be super cheap to pick up, but now they are going back up Parts are also pretty hard to find now, which makes it pretty difficult to restore.

-Update

I have just purchased a TON of NIB Justy parts, as well as a bunch of spare parts, headlights, tail lights, switches, etc.

I also just completed my 3rd Poly filled motor mount. I will need it to fully cure, but I have no reason why it shouldn't feel just as sturdy as the other 2 I have already filled/installed.
