My winter beater is a 1997 Subaru Impreza 2.2L Automatic.
I've owned this baby since July 2011 and it's been the best beater I have ever had. I picked it up on craigslist after it was in a accident. I repaired it so it could pass inspections. Cost me 500 for the car and 300 for a new bumper, fender, turn signal, driver side headlight. It has 107,XXX miles on it. I took this baby out during the snow storm we had in October and it just plowed right through everything with bald tires. Yes it may look very beat up but it does the job and I couldn't be happier. The motor is MINT, so I guess that's whats most important.
