I also didn't check the tags and had to pay an extra $265 or so to get it registered. In summary, I'm pretty sure $650 was more than this thing was worth.
Not entirely unlike my old beater Echo. Free for the cost of getting married and having two kids LOL, it departed the road last year with 273k on it. Had a busted radiator, which is a medium pain in the ass to fix, and not worth it. It would be a long post to list the problems with this car, so suffice it to say it had mold on the carpets, if that's any indication how completely abused this thing was. It held up great despite all of that.

That generation Impreza was on my short list for first car. Of course, I wanted a 2.5RS and that wasn't really happening.
