yeah.. california doesnt use road salt. all sand here.
i bought my Impreza from a family friend who is from Maine.. it drives perfect, except 2 issues that are rust related- it needs a new left front axle, because the CV joint is out, and the gas tank has a leak because the front of the seam has rusted kinda bad. The axle is a cheap (axle cost me 35 NEW), and USUALLY easy fix (I replaced an axle on my last suby - and it was a total cinch, took me 2 hours).
The gas tank is a bit of a bitch due to its location, but all i really gotta do is wire brush all the rust off and goop a bunch of tank sealant on it and it will be gold.
I took apart the whole thing.. got down all the way to the part where you slide the axle out of the hub and the things frozen on there so hard...
so fuckin A now i need to replace the hub, probably..
