Subaru Pink Badge

1997 Subaru Legacy GT, Auto-MEH-Tic

Well, somehow I suckered myself back into the game. I picked up a rather beat up 1998 Subaru Forester (black, 5spd) for cheap. Then that turned out to be a disaster so I traded it for a 1997 Subaru Legacy GT.

Yet another bad decision. *This bitch is sold*

While this Subaru Legacy GT was attractive enough, the automatic transmission was awful.
