Back when I was in college (in the late 20th Century, A.D.), I had a friend who always drove when we went on a road trip. It wasn’t because he was the best driver or had the biggest car or even the nicest car…no it was much more simple than that. He had the car that would always get us to our destination and back… and his car was a mid 80s Subaru Leone wagon. It didn’t have a turbo or all-wheel-drive like today’s example, but it always got a load of college kids to/from a concert, camping, or wherever college kids needed to go. He sold the car years ago, but I can only assume it is still being used by college kids to get around, or at least I hope it is. Anyway, if you want to make a political statement get a Tesla, but if need a car to get you places, get this 1985 Subaru Leone Turbo AWD offered for $6,000 near Santa Cruz, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
From the seller:
1985 Subaru 4×4 Wagon
cylinders: 4 cylinders
paint color: white
title status: clean
1985 Subaru Turbo 4×4 Wagon. Automatic, 4 door, rear hatch, completely original and only one owner since new.
This is an Aptos car, born and raised. Literally owned by a little old lady since purchased new in ’85. NEVER seen a dirt road, always cared for and serviced properly. These are hard to come by in this condition and white is even harder still.
102,000 original miles. All paperwork to back it up.
There is a small patch of rust (see pics) on the rear hatch just below the window. An easy fix for someone who cares. Other than that, this car is as pristine as can be for a 35 year old car with original paint and wheels.
Vehicle starts and runs fine. A tune up is probably in line, as it has sat for a bit.

Serious offers will be considered, but please…do not contact with lowball offers or any trades.
Thanks for looking!
