1994 VX FS or FT in MN

It's come time for me to sell my VX, my kids are getting big enough that it's becoming a pain (literally, bumping their heads) getting into my VX. This means I'll be open to trades as well as someone buying the car outright, but I've got my mind set on exactly what I want for a trade: 97-03 Subaru Impreza Wagon or Sedan, Manual Transmission, only.

Location: Andover, MN
Contact Info: Post here, PM, or email car-pal-tomo @ gmail.com (no hyphens or spaces)
Price: $1800 OBO or trade for 1997-03 Subaru Impreza sedan, or wagon, Manual only

About the car:
The good...
I bought this car in June of 2006, gave it a tuneup and going over, replaced the timing belt, water pump, and brakes all around. Replaced the LAF (O2/Oxygen sensor in late 2007)
Rebuilt (Valve stem seals, piston rings, main bearings, all gaskets, timing belt, water pump) and installed another D15Z1 motor on 5-10-2009, now has just over 50K miles on it and doesn't burn a drop of oil or leak any fluids.
It has a K&N OEM style filter installed in OEM airbox
PCV valve relocated to intake manifold in order to change/inspect it easily
PCV filter from valve cover to intake tube
Catch Can installed to help keep intake manifold cleaner, longer
Newer tires on the front, just installed Oct. 2012 rears still have ~80% tread left
New Monroe rear shocks installed in 2009, fronts installed at the same time but used
All suspension bushings were replaced front and rear within the last 5 years
Will come with two front bumpers: (Winter/Aero bumper, and the Summer OEM looking bumper with OEM Fog Lights and aftermarket chin spoiler)
Has OEM front and rear swaybars (rear sway bar modified for Heim joint links)
Del Sol seats installed and in decent shape
Volts, Vacuum, and Electric Water Temp gauges installed in center console from a 96+ Civic and grafted to the OEM center console
Carbon Fiber OEM style hood (with hood pins) for weight reduction
OEM flywheel turned down from 15lbs to 12lbs.
Mishimoto Radiator (all aluminum) installed ~3 years ago
New clutch installed at the same time as the rebuilt motor
New driveshafts installed the same time as the rebuilt motor
New front wheel bearings ~5 years ago
New front upper control arms ~5 years ago
HID Projectors (aimed properly)

The Bad...
There is rust on the rear quarters
I had replaced the rear quarter panels about 7 years ago, but the rust has formed again.
Some squeaks (it is a nearly 19 year old car)
Slight warping in the rear brakes (not really noticable and could be turned out on a lathe or replace the drums)
Cracks in the windshield

Winter/Aero shot:

Summer Shot:

Left Side:

Right Side:


I will miss this car, but need something a little bigger, but still useful. I would prefer a trade for a 97-03 Subaru Impreza wagon or sedan, manual trans only, but can sell the car outright.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of mpg were you getting prior to selling it?

Low to mid 40's since it's been cold and windy in MN
