Attention mechanics looking for a new family ride?! Or buy this car to FIX it and make a profit! NADA values the car at $6200 plenty of room for profit!
What it needs: Car needs new head gasket. It runs and drives great, has ice cold A/C but starts to overheat after a couple miles of driving. Car needs a new windshield, the old one is cracked. See photos.
Condition: Exterior has light scratches and dings which are normal wear and tear for a car of its age. The hood has several dings in it, maybe from hail damage, but the roof looks fine. Tires have 80-90% tread life remaining. Car is from the midwest and has very little rust on the undercarriage. The motor compartment is very clean as you can see in the photos- very rust free. Interior: See photos...driver's seat has a couple of small blemish areas. Driver's door panel has some dog marks...carpet has one hole near driver's feet. Rear passenger seat has tear on left hand side. Carpets have normal staining. Probably could use a good steam cleaning. Kids.
Car is from the midwest and it is mostly highway mileage. Wyoming title in hand as well as bill of sale. If this is an issue please don't bid. Any questions or concerns ask, ask, ask. I want a successful sale. A bid is a commitment to purchase. Vehicle is located on Martha's Vineyard island, surrounded by water. A ferry must be taken to get the car to the mainland. Car would need to be trailered or flatbed towed as it is AWD. For additional fee I could help with transport of vehicle to the mainland. The ferry docks in Woods Hole, MA.
Thanks for looking! Questions? Fire away.

In what we can only presume/hope is a precursor to the launch of the next-gen WRX STI, Subaru has released three videos now giving us a look back at the history of the STI-badged WRX models. In this third video, Dominick Infante, national manager of product communications at Subaru of America, got ahold of the automaker's 2011 WRX STI that broke records for the Isle of Man TT Challenge a couple of years ago.

In 2011, rally driver Mark Higgins piloted this car to a lap speed record of 115 miles per hour and a lap time record of 19:56.7 around the 37.8-mile course. The race-prepped STI, which Infante refers to as an "STI on steroids," features a beefed-up suspension, a wonderful-sounding open exhaust and the removal of the speed limiter to go with full roll cage and racing seats and harnesses.
Scroll down to see - and hear - new driving footage of this 2011 WRX STI with Infante behind the wheel as well as some race footage from 2011 - including a near-disaster Higgins averted at 150 mph. Also, be sure to check out the previous videos from Subaru for the 1998 Impreza 22B STI and a 2004 WRX STI.
Sources in Australia are reporting that we'll be seeing a small, rear-drive sedan from Toyota, based on the GT 86/Scion FR-S. Yes, a convertible variant is still in limbo, but a four-door sedan is in the works. It's unclear if the rumored GT 86 sedan would spawn Scion and Subaru variants (it's hard to cross all ten fingers while you type, but we're having a go).

Working with remarks made by the car's chief engineer Tetsuya Tada in his blog and a rendering from Japanese magazine Holiday Auto, the Australian site Motoring is claiming that the new model's wheelbase will grow about four inches over the current GT 86's 101.2-inch wheelbase.
Besides the larger overall space between the axles, the sedan will offer a more potent engine option over the current 2.0-liter, flat-four. Promising 268 horsepower, which is a big jump over the current car's 200 ponies, the new powertrain will be derived from the Hybrid R setup, shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. If, like us, you're reaching for the salt, and we don't blame you.
Andy Palmer, Nissan's executive vice president, does not like the Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ. To us, that's like saying you enjoy barbecuing puppies, but we'll let him slide, because his statements about the Toyobaru twins are much, much more than just idle trash talk.
Speaking to Motor Trend's Nate Martinez, Palmer said, "Do we have any competitors [in the small, rear-drive coupe segment]? Are you talking about the Subaru [BRZ]? It was a car designed for a 50-year-old. It's for a midlife crisis. That's not what we do." Strong words, but what followed was even better.
"Are you coming to the Tokyo Motor Show? You'll see the answer to the midlife crisis. Except it won't be for the midlife crisis." So, if you were wondering whether Nissan is working on a competitor to the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, the answer seems to be a resounding "yes."
