Subaru impreza blir saab 9 2

opinion

When I'm traipsing around in wrecking yardsobscure examples of badge engineering live at the top of my search list. I have yet to find a Suzuki Equatorthough I did manage to check off the oddball Isuzu Oasis from my list not long ago. Every possible Subaru will show up in Denver self-service wrecking yards, given enough time, and so here's a Saab X that I spotted recently.

This engine looks distinctly non-Saablike. Photo by Murilee Martin. Every X was an all-wheel-drive Impreza wagon beneath the Saab badges; customers could choose between the Linear trim level with naturally-aspirated 2. This one is the more affordable Linear.

The Subaru Impreza (second generation)...

The Saabed-up grille is missing now. Saab did put some non-Impreza front bodywork on these cars, but few seemed to notice the difference. I wonder if some Impreza owner grabbed the grille, just to have something different. The ignition switch doesn't live here, but at least a manual gearshift does. Of all the Saabs I have photographed in wrecking yardsthis one may be the rarest not counting the 92 I spotted in a Swedish wrecking yardof course.
