Scary Cheap: 2005 Subaru Legacy GT

The Subaru Legacy was a wild all-wheel-drive family car available with a twin-turbocharged setup in Japan, but pre-2005, US customers had to live with anemic flat-4 power.  That all changed in 2005 with the introduction of the 4th generation model that added a de-tuned version of Subaru’s STI 2.5 liter turbo-4 under the hood.  With a few small modifications the Legacy GT can become a seriously fast machine with all wheel drive and a manual gearbox.  Find this 2005 Subaru Legacy GT offered for $1500 in Frederick, MD via craigslist.
