SUBARU in the shop! No way!
3rd time's a charm: the repeated (and elusive) brake failure has been tracked to the ABS control unit. This is a $1500 piece of 20-year-old technology. The car itself is a $500, 20-year-old piece of...technology. The solution? Buy another entire 1991 Legacy from CL and take the needed part from what is probably a better car? Right you are! ...but no one is selling one atm...so on to plan B...which turned-out to be legacycentral bbs to make new friends...folks dedicated to 1st generation Subaru Legacies, and hope that they've got a used unit for sale. Keep your fingers crossed; meanwhile, my beloved Subaru sits in Costa Mesa awaiting a donor.
