A Legacy of Cool

27 05 2010

Now, if you’re a regular visitor to the Hellaflush blog you will have undoubtedly spotted awesome Subaru Legacy. I try not to make a habit of reposting anything I spot on some of the bigger blogs, simply because if I’m posting the same stuff as them there would be no point in you visiting Fully-Sick. However, to every rule there is an exception and this is most definitely worth a massive exception. Firstly I have always been a massive fan of the first-generation Legacy, one of my earliest memories of Rallying is that of Colin McRae hooning around in the Rothmans sponsored Legacy RS. That car always looked the part. Secondly I feel like the Legacy has become like the forgotten sibling to the Impreza, despite being the better looking car, but I guess with the Impreza’s motorsport credentials that is no surprise. However, it’s always nice to root for the underdog. So from that you can probably understand that I was somewhat excited when I spotted this little number on Hellaflush. The car has been built by Logan Noel, one of the guys behind the excellent Drift Union blog. As you can probably tell, the car has been built as a dedicated drift car and is apparently a regular sight at North American and Canadian drift events. It started out as a Legacy RS packing the 2.0 Turbo boxer engine and was of course 4WD. However due to it’s forthcoming use as a drift car the Drift Union lads converted it to RWD with apparently very little knowledge on how to do the conversion. The finished product looks brilliant, not only does the left of field choice of car make it stand out, but also the look and sheer aggression of the thing too. I would love to see more Legacy’s given some proper treatment, right now they are shockingly cheap to buy, with many being broken for the engines to be used in Air-Cooled VW’s. So, forget about Impreza’s and join the Legacy. Oh, and just a side note, Drift Union also run a matching Mazda RX7… but more on that tomorrow!

Thank you for the information Logan, I did see if I could hunt down some technical spec but ended up memorised by pictures instead. It’s a truly stunning car, fantastic work. I’m just about to post up the RX7 too, so any spec you could give me on that once it’s posted would be great.
