    Helloooooo

    I'm in full lock-down again in my county, I really wish everything would just shut down for two weeks....

    Anyway, how is everyone? I've grown accustomed to wearing a mask everywhere I go, got one with corgis on it (of course)

    My pandemic shopping wasn't satisfied with ordering all the crap on Amazon, so I bought a car. Meet Cherry Bomb.

    Hi Snap! Me & Sogno got a Subie, too. Utterly excellent. Luxurious. Beautifully built. Feels good in the hands. Loads of room inside. Drive it in good health! The thing is, for the life of me I can't tell the three Subaru station wagon varietals apart. We supposedly have an Outback but I can't be entirely sure. It doesn't help that ours is one of those shades of brown that makes it near impossible to pick out in a parking lot. Ah, there it is! Or is that a Forester? Or a Toyota? A Chevy?
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Got myself an Impreza sport last October-similar, but without those awful 'SUV rails' on the roof. Didn't want the Crosstrek, either. The extra clearance is helpful for maybe 3 months during the winter, and a pain in the @$$ for the other 9 months of the year. Makes it a LOT easier to load my Yakima roof rack (when I have it on..)

    Oooof that's the perfect name for that sweet ride!! WOW.

    Almost as stylish as a corgi mask! Might as well hunker down fashionably.

    My sons car died so he took over payments on My 2016 Honda CR-V. I went and got a new 2020 crv. Everything done over text and phone, only in the dealership about 30 minutes to sign papers.

    They said that you were in a Turkish Prison. I guess that everyone lied.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    Hiya Snap! Sounds like your sweet new ride needs a theme song.



    MH: I want to go like my Dad did - peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    SS: COMPLACENCY IS LETHAL. VOTE in November.

    Homer: I believe that the children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    Looks like the band is moving back to the old dive bar where it used to play;-)

    I think it's a lot friendlier here.

    I thought you bought a car equipped with a performance oriented muffler.

    That's so fitting on more than one level.

    Nice ride. We have a Forester and love it. BTW, best bike rack IMHO for a subie if you don't want to hassle with a roof rack. https://www.1up-usa.com/

    Considered a roof rack, but could also see the kid dropping a fork though the sunroof glass... The 1UP also doesn't look like a plumbing convention attacked your car.

    Meh.. We looked at Subies.. ended up with 2 Mini's (Clubman and Countryman). Handling (with the exception of the STI and WRX) felt like steering a boat.. and the manual shifted terribly (one of our requirements was manual all wheel drive, so that limited it to mostly Subarus, Jeeps and Minis..).

    I myself find the owners of Subarus much more fascinating then Subarus themselves.
