Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Hi Larry,
My '96 is also red. The pieces above the rear quarter panel that have the SVX logo on them are quite faded. Has this happened to yours also? Is this piece painted or is the plastic red and fading? I don't recall seeing this on any but the red ones...
I may eventually repaint mine, but if I do it will probably become a yellow car with either a red ar black top.

Chip.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Yes, both of those panels and mirrors are oxidized and faded. Much more on mine than my wife's. You're right, only the briliant red ones have this problem. Subaru outsorced these parts for painting. The problem is in the paint process and chemical makeup of the paint.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

I'm Rob and I feel like a noob, its been so long since I've posted here
I've had 3 SVXi (at one time) but am currently down to one.
I sold my Ebony last year and I think that may be the one you are seeing up in the Everett area. It has tinted windows and Nissan Murano wheels.
Man, I miss that car
Been working alot on my other Subaru's, just got my latest one (Brat) on the road. Also, a new gf is putting a damper on my wrenching. But I'm not complaining I need to get my Polo going so I can make some meets, I miss driving the SVX.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Hey there.
I'm Andrew.
I just recently bought a 92' ebony LS-L.
After fixing a minor stalling problem, (MAF sensor) I've come to like it even more.
Some of my friends call it my "old guy sport coupe".
I've driven IH Scouts for over 20 years, and this is my first "car".
I've liked Subarus for a while but in choosing the svx, I had to be different.
I live in Everett and work at Boeing. There are 2 other svx's that I've seen near there.
That's it for now.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Larry, I drive the teal SVX that was on the flightline a few parking spots away from you last summer! I have to say, you have one good looking (very clean) SVX. I always tried to get through the gate at the right time to run into you, but never had the luck.

Anyways, I am the proud owner of a Dark Teal '92 and have recently moved from Everett to Lynnwood and am not driving her at this time. I am currently rebuilding the engine and driving my brothers hyundai .

Any chance I could get on that wishlist for meets around here???

Talking Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Thanks for the compliment. I'm on second shift in stall 112. the next scheduled meet is April 10 at Earl's in Burlington. It's a maintenance meet, donuts, and kick the tires thing. I have a short route laid out through the tulip fields with a stop at PACCAR. PACCAR has a verry interesting open house. Then a dessert stop at the Farmhouse.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Thanks ensteele.
One other thing.
Has anyone else seen the "RARE, low mileage" black 92' in Puyallup that
is on Craig's List?
After I went to see it, I had to apologize to my brother for wasting a Saturday to go look at what turned out to be one level above a turd.
There were more things wrong with it than is room to list.
At least he recently dropped the price by 1 grand. But I think it's still 2 grand
more than what it's worth.
I think mine is in better shape even with more miles, and I sure didn't pay near what he wants.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Unfortunately my car will not be back together by april 1st unless divine intervention occurs . I certainly do not want to rush the re assembly though. I would still love to show up and say hello, share pics and have a good time with some fellow enthusiasts.

Earl, if you wouldnt mind PM'ing me some directions, I could certainly see if I could make it up to your neck of the woods. Sounds like it would be a good time.

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Hello
I'm Dan and I own a 92 SVX Silver / Black. I also work at Boeing on 2nd. I talked to Larry today and he told me about the meet this weekend. I'll try to make it this weekend. If some could send me directions for it that would be big +. Thanks.
Dan

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

UF320! You park near the south east corner correct? I was admiring your SVX today on the way out. Seeing one consistently makes me miss mine even more, since I am stuck in a POS hyundai for the time being. I have been trying to run into you in the parking lot but you always seem to be inside the gates already by the time I locate your car at the end of shift. You have a very nice condition SVX from what I can see from the outside. I admit, I have looked through the windows like a kid in a candy store.

Do you work on the 787 or is that the only place you can find parking at that time of the day

Re: SVXWN - NW Area Group

Trystan, I'm in Silverton, OR and have a 1996 teal SVX that drives beautifully but has some dents from the previous owner and a big one in the door because my neighbor backed into it. It's my first car and I love it and I got it for way less than it's worth. I've seen 2 other SVX's in the area.
