Motor Trend's Roadkill vs 2015 Subaru Legacy

Motor Trend's Roadkill guys usually do up rusty classics, and turn them into running rusty classics.

This time Subaru USA challenged them to a few events (in a 2.5 NA and 3.6R Legacy). Pretty entertaining, in a very non-scientific sorta way 8) :

Yeah I was surprised too! 8) Subaru basically paid for all sorts of old-school muscle-car gear incl an engine, carburettors and suspension parts.

Only cause Freiburger & Finnegan's shit is/was broke :lol: . They wanted a 'fair fight'. I love General Mayhem (the Charger) tearing up that rally school track & the Rotsun is just mental (when it runs).

:lol: hehe yeah reliability isn't their strong point. They did have way more fun in their cars than the pretty boring Legacys - thanks to electronic safety aids.
