Subaru Legacy – Record Holder 35 Years Later

I hadn’t realized that the Legacy still held this record, but Road & Track highlighted that on it’s introduction to the word, the Legacy set records that stand to this day in 2024.

Back in 1989 Subaru set the record for time to reach 100,000km in the 1.5-2.0 liter class. Three Legacies completed the task, over the course of 18 straight days, the fastest averaging 138mph.

New Look and Feel – Same Legacy Central

So, what’s new?

It’s been a very long time since I updated this website, and there’s kinda one big reason for it: Ease.

The system that the classic Legacycentral had been using was well over 20 years old, based on an arcane news posting program, and surely I’ve been lucky that it’s not been compromised in some way shape or form simply because of obscurity.

Well, it’s easier now to install CMS systems like WordPress and still maintain old things, like for you to look at. Also, for me to refer to, as I copy content over. It’s likely that I will remove some of the old content, but we’ll see.

In car news, well, I’m back in an AWD, turbocharged, white wagon. This one was made in Mexico, but for a German manufacturer. It’s a 2017 VW Golf Alltrack, which replaced a 2012 Honda Fit, which replaced a 2009 Fit. I’m quite enjoying the ownership and some of the creature comforts of the VW, including a quiet ride, adaptive radar cruise control, and effective air conditioning. Maybe I’ll post later about the last 8 years in cars, but let’s just get this up and running for now!
