What's your most obscure SVX item?

I have an svx engine crate side on my garage wall and wondered if anyone else had wacko paraphernalia...

I have a 12"x14" full color booklet of the 1992 SVX. Its sort of a brochure that talks a little bit about how the car came about and its relation to older models like the XT and the Legacy. Its full color and pretty nice. I also have a copy of the Road and Track Guide to the SVX but i think just about everyone has one of those here. Oh, and by saying that i have one I don't mean i have it on hand. I loaned it to Amy down in San Antonio oh....like 2 YEARS AGO! *hint hint Amy* So right now i techinically own it...its just not in my possesion.

My boyfriend has the subaru sheet metal from under the SVX hood... The part with the subaru imprint on it... I think its like 3-4 inches tall and maybe 12 inches long... It's from his first car (a claret). It hit a tree and was totalled so he kept it as a memory. I think its pretty cool.

I have the Subaru SVX S23A manual that was a pre-production binder given to US Subaru dealers outlining the upcoming 'SVX Coupe' with the model designation of 'S23A'

Very rare!

I have a custom stainless steel SVX toolbox.





OK, so maybe it isn't really custom, and maybe it's just a vinyl graphic

I guess my "most" obscure is the SVX Prototype Brochure. For the record, I also have:

'92 SVX Pre-Debut Brochure
'92 SVX Showroom Brochure
'92 Promotional Coffee Mug with Pearl SVX
Post Card with a Pearl '92, announcing the SVX as one of Popular Mechanics "Design and Engineering Award" winners for 1992.
Original Promotional SVX Jacket
The original SVX "Owner's Manual on Videotape" that came with my car.
Original SVX Promotional SVX Note Pad

I also have *copies* of some of the other videos and a *remake* of an original SVX cap.

I also have other "odds and ends." Both cars have thier own Owner's manuals and the black SVX folder. One has the checklist and some other things (security feature directions for one -- which are wrong, by the way), and one of them has the original SVX penlight. I also have an original SVX tool kit (nothing special, by the way, but I had to have one after I found out it came with one. )

I also have a "Drive so fast, you'll get so many tickets, you'll lose your license" ad, from R&T, which is becoming more of a prophecy, than an ad.

That's all I can think of, at the moment.

(OH, and two sets of GREY SVX floor mats, new, in the plastic -- no, I'm not sharing).

The weirdest thing I've got thats SVX related is the small factory sticker on the inside of the windscreen, behind the rear-view mirror that perplexingly says:

"Only to be removed when the owner sees it"...

Those crazy Japanese.

Oh and some original UK specifcation owners manuals...
