Junkyard Find: 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan

The Subaru Impreza has been with us since the 1993 model year, and you’ll still see plenty of the first-generation Impreza Outback wagons on the streets (and in the junkyards) of Colorado. All US-market Subarus got all-wheel-drive starting in the 1997 model year, so the company’s American marketers had to show a distinction between the […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2002 Toyota Corolla CE, Last of the 3-Speed Automatics

Not long ago, I became curious about the production longevity of the good old three-speed automatic transmission in North America. The first really successful true automatic had four forward speeds and the two-speed Powerglide delivered the slushbox to the masses, but the three-speed Detroit automatics of the 1960s truly converted the continent to the two-pedal […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Toyota Corolla CE, Last of the 3-Speed Automatics appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2002 Saab 9-3 SE

During my years of documenting discarded Saabs in junkyards around the country (and in Saab’s homeland), I’ve managed to cover the pre-GM American-market models well enough, with a special focus on the 900. In recent years, I’ve been working to cover some of the Saabs from the period of General Motors influence (1989-2000) and control […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Saab 9-3 SE appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2002 BMW X5 4.4i

Now that I’ve been doing these Junkyard Finds for 13 years and having just written my annual 10 Best Junkyard Cars post, I’m taking a look back to see what historically significant vehicles I’ve neglected as I pursue weird examples of badge engineering and trivia–question AWD versions. I’ve been working on filling in the blanks […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 BMW X5 4.4i appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2002 Audi A4 1.8T Wagon

Here in Denver 15 or so years ago, the Subaru Legacy Outback wagon was king among car shoppers looking for a vehicle suited for their dog-owning, ski-slope-visiting, REI-shopping lifestyles (that is, most of the population). But what about those who wanted an all-wheel-drive wagon that was a bit less… stolid? While you could get the […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Audi A4 1.8T Wagon appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Junkyard Find: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally Edition

Hunting for interesting junkyard Mitsubishis has become more difficult during the last five years or so, as the Cordias, Tredias, and Sigmas have mostly disappeared, leaving endless fleet-spec 21st-century Galants and Outlanders plus the occasional weird Chryslerbishi. One of the few bright spots is the Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally Edition, an econo-commuter that looked quick […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally Edition appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

In Case You Forgot, Ashanti Was Once The Queen of R&B.

I know what you’re probably thinking. The world needs an Ashanti comeback. Ok literally no one is thinking that. Except for me. And maybe some random dude on the west coat cause they be on some other shit. Never mind it’s definitely still just me. Aside from the fact that Ashanti has lowkey been slaying all the present and former R&B chicks with an Instagram account that is just a hair more appropriate than Miracle Watts’, she’s relevant right now because 15 years ago this month, Ashanti release...

Horsepower, Democratized! A History of Bringing Power to the Masses
