Little Lion: 1988 Subaru GL

Ask the average Joe what he knows about Subaru and he will probably talk about the new Forester or a variety of SUV-ish looking wagon-things that are designed to be lightly off-roaded and driven around the city.  Press a little more and Joe might talk about the sporty WRX or STI versions of the Impreza…but it is entirely likely that he is totally unaware of Subaru’s interesting history of importing oddball economy cars into the US market starting in the 1960s with the Ladybug and continuing through the 80s with things like the GL. Find this 1988 Subaru GL offered for $3700 in Westchester, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
