Howdy.

Some of you may remember me from FM4. I took a break from Forza because I needed money to play with real cars rather than virtual ones :P. Here's some old work.

Here's a look into some of the aforementioned real cars:
2nd car was a slightly lifted '98 outback with all terrains and a side exit exhaust. Much fun was had, until I crashed it due to a slurpee. Keep your eyes on the road kids.


Bought a truck, welded a bull bar on and put lights on it. Was a monster in the snow.


Currently have an '01 325ci, with a few modifications to make it an absolute blast around the track. Also bought the best 1 thousand dollar Forester I could find for daily duties.



Anyway, here's a few shots to Kick this off.

Old Man Of The Mountain: 1990 Subaru Legacy RS


By this point in time, everyone's heard of the Subaru WRX, the roaring little car that has taken many rally wins as well as the hearts of many. The Impreza may be the one we all remember, but it's trail was blazed by its bigger brother, the Legacy. Originally destined to be a practical family sedan, it ended up being a formidable performance machine. The biggest accolade it collected was a win in the 1990 Safari Rally, which brings us to the subject of today's review: The 1990 Subaru Legacy RS.



The Legacy sold to the public was no different than the one that won the Safari Rally, other than safety equipment. It comes with a 2.0 liter flat four with a turbo strapped on, churning out 217hp. While it may struggle to keep pace with a new Camry, it was certainly quick for it's time. The engine lets loose an animal like rasp as you power through each gear, something you don't get in a Camry. The 5-speed shifts smoothly, but doesn't like being slammed around the same way a Honda does.



The Legacy is no slouch in the corners either. Despite being AWD, it has a slight propensity to oversteer if you turn in correctly, but will understeer like any other AWD if you are overly ham-fisted and lead-footed. Given the rally heritage, it comes as no surprise that there is a considerable amount of body roll, but with a deft touch it'll navigate your favorite back road with ease.



The styling is clearly a product of the late 80's, with a rounded box design. I find the front end to be very aesthetically pleasing though, with it's simple and honest design. The car looks decent in profile as well, but I do not have praise for the rear. It's not the worst thing to reach production, but I struggled at finding an angle that made it look good. The interior is classic Subaru, with a clean and functional design that may not be interior of the year but is also hard to nit pick.



A fun little car, the RS was a great start for Subaru's rally program and something that I would not mind finding in my garage one day.

Nice shots, I really like that Golf shot in the beginning.

& nice cars as well, I used to have a 97 Outback in blue, no side exhausts though. ;) But welcome to the BMW family!

Thanks guys. I blew the engine in my Forester last night, it turns out you cant drift a car with 227k miles for 45 minutes straight.

Anyways, here's some stuff:











Thanks for looking.

All of those are stunning! Great work so far and I'm looking forward to more. I'm pretty sure I remember you (though my memory can be terrible at times :P), I think my GT was still Legomaster909 around that time.

Thanks everyone, and NV I do remember the gamertag Legomaster

Here's today's update:















Let me know what you really think, something the Ferrari shots feels off, maybe over-saturated?

The first Ferrari shot may be a touch over-saturated but I think it works with the photo. It lends a bit to the overall atmosphere of the shot. With that being said I really like the second and third shot the best!

Again great work with lighting! Dark, yet clear.

I don't know what this is but it's my fav shot.

The angle and color works really well in the second shot!

Edit for the new update:

The first has an aggressive feel to it and the last one is great as well, nice work!

Some great shots in your gallery, really good creative use of lighting. The car colour really works in the shot above, everything clicks.

Loved the Scooby Legacy article style post you did with some impressive photos. Never really knew much about the Impreza's predecessor so that was really nice to read with the pictures.

The first Legacy shot is my favourite by far for its simplicity and yet striking composition, really felt it befits the era it was made.

Looking forwards to more later on!

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

With the exception of the first shot, I went for more realism with this set:









It took forever to get this shot, I really wanted the blue flame with opposite lock. It took roughly an hour of timing off throttle and steering input, and reviewing replays. Not exactly the finished product I was looking for but good enough for now:



Thanks for viewing
