2000 Subaru 2.5 RS aka "Penny"

Justin updated their 2000 Subaru 2.5 RS bio

This car is 219k miles young. Previous couple of owners took great care of her with the exception of timing belts. Bought her after the previous owner had the timing belt go. Luckily she knew the rarity of the car and decided to sell it to raise some money for her move to CA for school. I was glad to help take this 2.5 RS off her hands. Initially I rebuilt the heads and put everything back together over the summer of 2014 only to have the air conditioning belt tensioner rub through the timing belt cover. Yes the timing belt blew up again. For a third consecutive winter she sat until she was taken apart and rebuild just in time for the Tuner Spotting summer 2015 show tour. Everybody meet Penny, 1 of what could easily be less than a couple thousand of these 2.5RS left on the road in the US. Future plans include a wrx swap and some other aesthetic improvements. Truly trying to make this a unique GC build, by the typical cookie cutter that a lot of Subarus become. Just recently had the head gaskets go after a bad thermostat and being forced to drive her in the sticks for about half an hour with no coolant. Guess it's time for a swap!!
