      My 1997 Legacy L. It had the venerable 2.2L 135hp four, 5-speed, and Raceline wheels.

      While not mechanically perfect (needed a few oil seals, a cam service, and a clutch), this is a car that had the throttle matted everywhere it went during the 2.5 years and 90K miles I owned it.

      That little engine with its stock exhaust still sounded pretty good. Completely unstoppable in the snow, and wonderfully comfortable over long distances. Loved it.

      This motor is only worth a crap after you put good intake gaskets on it. The stock plastic ones are junk. I sale auto parts and it's the number one thing on lots of older chevy v6's.

      My mom and dad have an 90 mazda mx5 dx (super base model) 281k miles last i looked my dad dailies it. I have 218k on my 98 b5 passat wagon 1.8t, on the 3rd auto trans and 2nd turbo but no CEL. My dad has run 3 chevy astro's to 230k+ miles before killing them all with 4.3L.
      Budget $2500. car -$1040 = $1460 to make it better.
