Just paid off the loan on my 2013 Outback 8 months ahead of schedule. This is the first time I’ve fully paid off a car that I bought brand new. Feels good. Will feel even better when that title comes in the mail.
Swung by the dealer to pick up a washer nozzle for my Foz (yes, the nozzle failed on my ‘14) and they had 2 of the 500 yellow BRZ’s. I’m gonna need a minute.
I got to a point in my life where I realised that despite being a car lover from day 1, in my 25 years on this Earth I hadn’t actually done anything about it. Watching Mighty Car Mods and Roadkill had always excited me, but I’d never turned a wrench on anything but the dullest of dailies. It was time to change that.

Three years ago, a similar list of this nature was made on Oppo, let’s see how far we’ve gone since then…
one of these is not like the other.

It is vacation time. My family, extended family, and in laws had the plan to go to Disney World. Everyone else takes a plane, but we decided to take a Disney Road Trip.
Last post, I promise - arrived at destination :) 970 miles in 14h 20m for an average speed of 67.7 MPH. Not bad considering a break for lunch, 2 gas fills, and 2 rest stops. And not a car-related complaint from the passengers - human or canine! Only hiccup was we planned on stopping at a Chic-fil-A halfway,…
800 miles travelled, a little under 200 left. About ready for this to be done.
My wife just sent me this picture. Only 62,000 miles and we now have a similar or worse dent at all four corners from assholes in parking lots. I was planning on getting some body work done but at this point it seems like it’ll just get another dent as soon as I drop $2k to get all of this fixed.
I really need to was this one more often. It takes me no time at all to forget how nicely it cleans up.
I’ll be moving my sister to Colorado this weekend (from Metro-Detroit Michigan) this weekend. I was thinking about what would be the ideal vehicle for the trip. We are moving all of her stuff in her Kia Soul and possibly a second vehicle (either a new boostang convertible or my dads F150). This post also applies to…
Long shot, but I need some help with part numbers and problem diagnosis. ‘14 Forester 2.5i, windshield washers not working. I think the nozzles are just clogged. Main thing is I need a part number for the stupid plastic clips I broke to get into the cowl after dropping the fluid hose down into it. Top photo shows 3…
Looks like I’ll be pulling apart the cowl after the kids go to bed tonight to fish out the other end of the hose.
But a Saturday morning accomplishment just before the heat index hit 90F nonetheless. It may look like a generic box, but the 6MT/AWD drivetrain gives it more driving character than it has any right to and I love this car.
So, today I finally got an opportunity to get some overdue work done on the Outback, namely tires and brakes. They had been worse for wear for a while now and it was just simply time. I had some recall work done a few months ago and was given an Impreza as a loaner, and I thought the car was simple and decent for what…
