we can see why the car caught the attention of someone at subaru hq. although it has 215,000 miles on the odometer, the stick-shift legacy longroof looks as if it just rolled off the showroom floor. the car's remarkable condition and storied history are well documented in the extensive and detailed craigslist ad penned by the car's owner, aaron, who runs a page called rad report that focuses on—you guessed it—craigslist ads featuring stick-shift cars from the '80s and '90s.
