  1. It suited that little dwarf perfectly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder its now for sale given how fat he’s become!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Such a great car in terms of its abilities. Colin McCrae made Subaru famous driving cars like these. With his sad death, the brand lost it. An era of motoring history I fondly remember still.
