Junkyard Find: 1991 Subaru XT, Juggalo Inside

When I lived in California, I never saw a car covered with Insane Clown Posse paraphernalia in a junkyard. Colorado is a different story. When a Juggalo slaps some ICP stickers on his or her car here, it’s next stop, junkyard! Usually such cars are pay-it-no-mind Contours or Accords, and so I don’t really notice, but I’ve been not-so-secretly lusting after a Subaru XT as a winter driver and it pains me to see one end up like this.

  • 3SpeedAutomatic This reminds me of the small pickup truck market in the US. Ford had the Ranger which was withdrawn for the market. Then, OMG, the Ranger appears in 2019. Same with Dodge(Ram) Dakota. What Ford flubbed was the lack of advertising; an attempt to convert it into a suburban family hauler; and the removal of the high top version with extra stand up space. It was a utility van, no more, no less. Don't be surprised if this market re-appears in a few years, but all electric. What comes around, goes around. PS: On a recent trip to Paris, these small vans (Ford, Peugeot, Renault, Fiat, VW, etc) were everywhere!!! It appears that the Europeans are way smarter than the North Americans in this case.
  • Kwik_Shift Ever see the movie "Rubber"?
  • Bunkie Perhaps, I am wrong, but I believe that the issue is that high-power electronics in an EV cause interference with the AM radio signal. As for listening to radio in the car, I don't. I had SiriusXM for a few years but hated the awful sound quality and the signal dropout caused by obstructions like terrain (which made listening to any talk-based content painful), not to mention the annual game of having to threaten to cancel in order to get a decent rate. These days, I use either music stored on my phone or one of the streaming music services to which I subscribe. Sometimes I even listen to CDs, I will miss the CD player.

  • Mike Beranek People tend to get pissed at me because I don't speed on 25 mph residential streets. I don't speed on those streets because there's nothing to be gained, like there would be by speeding on a highway.Also, a question for drivers: If you're in the passing lane, why are they passing you?
