Seattle’s Parked Cars: 1982 Subaru GL Wagon

The new generation Subarus arrived in 1980, available as a hatch, sedan,
coupe, and wagon, all available in front and four wheel drive. The
styling was modern and handsome, a welcome upgrade from Subaru’s strange
styling of the previous decade, and the 4WD system was further refined
and improved. Interestingly, GL models for the first two years were
available with a third headlight mounted behind a pivoting door in the
center of the grille. Known as the “Cyclops” these Subarus are fairly
rare, and today are appreciated as a piece of 80s weirdness. This
“Cyclops”-equipped GL still has its original white rims, and features a
host of 80s accessories, including the rear window cleaner and
pinstriping.
