    The fact more than a few of us found this thread via a Facebook link probably tells the story. There's also shiiieeeetttloads more content out there to 'consume' (i hate that word) When i joined (03 i think, 100th member) you could hardly watch a video online and youtube was still 3 years away.

    Not sure who's paying the server bills but hopefully it's managed so that it can stay around for a while yet, we lost 3 years of the MCM forum because an admin pressed the wrong button, can happen that quick and boom there goes a bucket load of resources.

    Drove my wagon today. So good.

    I'm always floating around the site and checking up on how its all going.

    I took the RS out for the MCM day at Winton recently and she still runs like a dream, its crazy to think that mine and Jake's RS started this forum nearly 15 years ago.....time sure does fly.

    I didn't fund the link, I was just chilling and thought, what was the RS forum up to and spotted this thread.

    Good to see that the forum is still around, but I miss Reggie's banter, Hendo's cliff notes, Billsy's left field craziness.

    BTW Marty did you post build pics of the conversion you did in Al's shed with BenTZ (Mechanical Stig aka Benny)???

    the sad thing is that since subaru discontinued the RS liberty/legacy, the fan base will drop. newer cars will entice drivers jumping ships. I dont blame them all those creature comforts and now safety specs (airbags, blindspot, reverse camera etc etc) also with the P plates law and anti hooning we hear from the media.

    i sold my RS subby and now drive a SUV as i am now a family man. Those rock hard suspension and loud exhaust doesn't cut for the family. I did move myself to an audi q5 as it is affordable and has grunt, the quality over a jap car can be night and day after 10 years. But im sure that is another debate.

    anyways i came here as i found a part in my drawer to sell, as the last time i've logged was more than 2 years ago. and i will probably login again in year 2019.

    Facebook as killed the forums. but you cant search facebook.

    Haven't been on here in a long time......

    I have still got my RS sitting in shed behind a few other toys. But the urge to overhaul and bring it back to its former glory is growing.

    Happy to chip in some money to donate to keeping forum live. There is a lot of info that has helped out many over the years.

    Is there any national meet on the radar? Miss the old rs lib cruise videos!

    Bumping an old thread (and posting for the first time in a few years), I still pop in here every now and then.

    There is a mint RS Wagon (white with gold wheels) that is around my new house, reminds me of my old bus (miss that thing). Some bloody good times had with the RS Crew.

    +1 ..and if there is ever any need of some cash to support/maintain the site and its wealth of info, I'm sure pretty much all of us would be happy to fork out!

    Hi All! Just checking in after about 8 years... took me ages to remember my bloody password haha. I cant believe this site used to be my first go to page when I got to work, and unfortunately now its all about facebook etc..
    Anyway, I still have my old RS in the shed over here in Perth. I've come close to selling it once or twice but decided not to as I know i'll never come across another one like it. I too hate that these forums have been left in the dust by social media, which obviously doesn't cater for the information that these forums contain. I'm glad it is still being kept alive though.... Live on RSLC!

    Had it this long. Be madness to sell it now. Not many of the new Gen cars inspire me like the old cars do. There raw and fun. Even the BRZ/86's as awesome as they are don't get me the same way. My 95 is staying safe where it is.

    ah nice, saw some guy who'd just bought a matt black legacy on facebook, no idea who it was. lol.
    i even misread the post and nearly sent him down the garden path, haha
