Nice looking ride! Was the car local to you, or did you have to go out of province to get it? They're getting really hard to find in Canada.

Thank You! I go to University in Windsor I found the car local, then drove it to my home in Edmonton. I see them all over the place near Ottawa/Montreal, but the Ontario Salt scares me. The Nice thing about this car was It was originally a BC car but they moved to Windsor in 2016.

Extra good find then.

I used to live in Windsor, about 13 years ago. I dailied my SVX back then, but never saw another one until I moved to London. The massive quantities of salt they use in Windsor was partly responsible for me deciding not to winter it any more.

I'm back up north again now, and there are very few left here. If you need a break driving back to Alberta, feel free to stop in here!

Re: Every member please check in here!

Hi there.

My name is John and I own a 92 Pearl SVX. It's actually my third SVX. My first was a 95 without leather and my second was a black 96 LSI that was fully loaded.

My 92 has been changed slightly. Lowered with Planet SVX springs, 18" RX8 wheels with Subie center caps and I added the Subaru SVX logo on the rear panels, making the car look like a 94.

Nice looking ride.
Are the centre caps a stock Subaru part? I run Mazda Millennium wheels in winter and wouldn't mind swapping the Mazda caps out.

I bought generic plain center caps from Summitt or JC Whitney (can't remember which one) then bought a nice set of Subie emblems off eBay and used double stick 3M VHB tape on the back.

Welcome!

What happened to the 95 and the 96?

Also how do you find the lowered ride height during the winter?

Re: Every member please check in here!

Hello everyone,

Just picked up my first SVX a couple of weeks ago, still getting by bearings on what I'm going to do with it.

Claret/Tan LSi '95, only 84k miles. Spent a healthy part of its life being used as a solar panel from what I've been able to tell, which explains why the miles are so low and the paint is shot. Interior is in decent shape, after the removal of the Alacantra anyway, that stuff was gross. The guy I bought it from only owned it a couple of months and smoked a LOT of weed in it. I'm still cleaning THC off the windows. Otherwise the interior is good.

When I had the doors apart to re-upholster them, I installed new 6.5" Sony speakers over some Dynamat, but otherwise the stereo system is stock. My wife may have found her calling re-upholstering cars, she is seriously very good at it.

Anyway, that's all there is to the story so far.

Welcome. Sounds like a good project. What did you use to reupholster the interior?

Also, pics?

Re: Every member please check in here!

Hi all!
Just bought my 10th Subie!
I had a 1992 Pearl SVX from 92-96 then i sold it for a 96 Impreza RS.
Well, I was driving through Manchester, VT 2 weeks ago and out of the corner of my eye i saw a 92 Pearl SVX for sale. 100K miles so I bought it.
My most pressing need is almost ALL the rubber. Anyone know where I can find it? Thanks. Looking foward to spending a lot of time with my fellow SVXers !

I used a vinyl material that has a good leather look to it. Nice stuff. I need to get a photobucket account or something so I can post pics... Haven't done that in a while.
