Hi guys and girls!
Maybe somebody remembers me and my blue ex-ST185 (unfortunately many pics are lost on imageshack - don't want pay them! :shoots: )

After almost 10 years and owning different cars, mostly turbo-Subaru's, I'm back into GT-Four game 8)

Now I own black MY'96 ST205 (from Switzerland, one owner in 21 years!)

Here's my baby :D

When these cars become legal to import to the US, I wonder how hard (and expensive) to get a LHD St205.

Thank you, guys! I was monitoring market of LHD ST205's for some time, prices went up in recent years... But with certain luck it's still possible to get one for reasonable money :smokes:

I was in Lithuania for short vacations - I went through the very first MOT and registered my ST205 :smokes:

It needs some love and care, but what a great ride it is!

you can see my dad's Land Cruiser - it's also from 1996 :P


the very first mod from to my GT-Four (it came from Bulgaria)

Image

and test-fitted my new summer wheels (they are forged 7.5x17 ET30 from Russia)

So you've got two pairs of wheels that have the same specs and appearance but are different makes?

The first set - classic/old-school "16 OZ Crono's for winter, the second - brand new "17 forged wheels (called Slik L-703) made by order in Russia for summer

I just like simple 5-spoked wheels, what can I do? :D

Makes sense, I'm sure it'll confuse some of the locals who see the car :doh:
