OH, well now dont I feel sheepish. Oops. Sorry. Didn't meant to
go off on you. I believe the Magazine is CAR not CARS but there is one by
that name that I have seen before. I think it may be either British or
Australian based. Pretty good wrightups from what I have seen. Cool one
online about the WRX Version III Sti-Type R or whatever they call it now.
Anyhow, glad to see we actually agree on this matter :)

Is Vanagon a Westi or Synchro?!?! I want both, $$$$$$. Oh, and I
want 200 hp in it too. Would settle for about 130 though. Maybe an Audi
2.3L conversion, or VR6. Or, (Shrinking back in fear of evil responses) a
Subaru 2.5L motor. 150 hp and probably close to same size as the 4-cyl
thats in there. Wonder of a Subaru SVX motor would fit. 220 hp. Or a
turbo charged Subaru 4 like the WRX has. 911 motor is nice but I want
lots of HEat for those cold ski trips so that would require a GAs fired
heater. Boy, the possibilites are endless, the funds are not though. Oh
well. 4kq will have to do for know, just wish I had a Yakima Rocketbox to
go with the ski Rack to hold all the gear.
