    Abandoned Subaru Showroom

    Remember seeing this about a Ford garage years ago in Cyrpus in disputed area of the island but this is mad altogether as this just closed when it went it got competition and remains since!

    true too Jamie and the XT apparently is very very rare in RHD. They reckon only 1 manual and 1 auto exist in the UK anyway.

    That's on the road but there are about 15 at least left in the UK plus there are about 5/6 XT's in Ireland that I know of, there may be more? There are quite a few in America and they got the follow on model the XT6 which is probably a better car, more of them again over there. It had the 6 cylinder engine, some people have put full STi running gear in to them which would be quite cool. Even looking at jdm auction sites though, you rarely see them so, yes they aren't very common, certainly not on the roads!

    Thanks for the post, loving seeing abandoned perfect car showrooms, amazing to see one with an XT in it!
