I guessed it had at least one welded diff. How does a welded rear go on and AWD, or is it before Subaru went to all AWD?
Not me, and not off the black top in the way you were probably meaning, but Jen's first car was a Brumby.Surely someone has had or has a brumby, L series, or forester they take off the black top.
Is that the old AGQuip special pin striping? My uncle had one - wore a roo through the windscreen and pranged it. I used to lust after that little ute.Not me, and not off the black top in the way you were probably meaning, but Jen's first car was a Brumby.

She only had it for a year or so, because it wasn't really suited to the long kilometers we were always doing. Couldn't fault it on the farm though, as it was a great little work horse. It was even small and nimble enough to get down the tracks on her parents piggery that were made for the quad bike.
Because I enjoy sharing, here's one of my favorite subi moments.
The time it won a 4x4 trophy.
We used to go to a lot of local shows, and although we didn't really take them too seriously, we would enter the ute/car comps just to get parking and camping inside the grounds (Another advantage to parking inside the grounds, was that you could smuggle your in your Eski/fridge full of drinky poos).
Usually I'd just enter the Holden category, and Jen would just tick the "other makes" box. We knew we wouldn't win anything, but didn't care.
While registering at one show, I looked around at the other vehicles entered, and noticed their were no four wheel drives to be seen. So for a laugh, I told Jen to "tick the 4x4 box".
By the time registrations closed, we noticed a couple of kitted out dual cabs, and knew one of them would take the prize. Oh well, it was worth a try.
Turns out there was just the two of them, and they were handing out prizes for first, second, and third.
When they were handing out the prizes, we just happened to be standing next to the two fellas that owned the dual cabs. They were joking amongst themselves about which of them would get the third place trophy. As far as they were concerned, there were only two 4x4 at the show. When they called out Jen's name they both looked a little confused. Then one of them laughs and says, "Oh yeah, I did see a subi."
The other fellow just said, "I didn't even know they were four wheel drive", and then they both congratulated her.
The trophy sits proudly on a shelf in our library to this day.
