And here's one more.  This is the '82 to '8? Pontiac Firebird.  It didn't say how much they wanted.  Or if it ran.  Wasn't this platform the most troubled of any generation of Firebird?  I know that a rare few came with an Iron Duke 4 and that some came with a 2.8 V6?  That was nothing to brag about.  However, I definitely took notice of this nicely maintained '80s Firebird amidst the fall foliage.

That is a Subaru Baja, the spiritual successor to the original BRAT from the 1970s.  Produced between 2003-2006.

Ha.  Both 4 letter B words.

With those rub strips on the front fascia, I'd say it a base trim '86-90.   Interesting how it's parked up on a raised platform...car dealer?

Used car dealer, IIRC.  I like the alloys on the front wheels.  I don't even know how to describe that color.  As for the engine, I don't know which engine it had.  I remember that, if they had a 4 cyl., they inscribed it on the door handles for a couple of MYs ?!?

That detail I don't remember...the color reminds of Firethorn. I think they dropped the 4 after '85...late 80s-early 90s a 2.8 V6 was the base engine IIRC.
