Were To Purchase A Scooby

:?: Does anyone no a good independent garage that sells scoobies or a main dealer that isnt to expensive prefer to get a U.K rather than an import, I am looking at spending 8500 cash + a P/X of about 3500... Would like a RB5 or simmlar but they all seem to be private sales... Any ideas odr thoughts would be welcome

1 idea is to search the net for Scooby main dealers or even autotrader via the net

should be able to get a nice motor for that kinda money.

Hello. RB5's are har to come buy but the normal (is amy impreza normal :?: ) Impreza should be ok for that sort of money...

As far as places to buy are concerned the Japfest (featured in the Meetings forum) has an area where cars are for sale... The event is on the 22nd may at castle coombe... It may be worth your while getting over there to suss things out.... BUT dont be swayed by them good looking mitsubushi things, just keep looking at the impreza

Let us know how it goes

Drivin a Saxo VTR at the mo ops: but dont worry i didnt buy it, it was the other halfs company car and she was given it as part of a redundency package....

Would never be swayed by EVO'S, always wanted a scoob after my dad had a legacy back in the good old days ( as he calls them ) :wink: :wink:

good link for checking Scoobs for sale at official dealers

I would say I will keep my eye out for you locally to me but you live in Nottingham which I guess is a bit far for you to come to look at a Scoob.

As for Legacy - great car - its where it all began in my view - have considered one of these as a track/hillclimb motor

Have visited a few Hillclimbs - a few down your neck of the woods actually

Its something I would love to do - and the thought has crossed my mind about buying an older style Leg and sorting it for Hillclimbs events etc....My missus has actually agreed to me buying something like this after the summer so watch this space.
