  • "out of the wood-works"

    Okayokay.. I know I haven't been around posting on MiVE in quite some time.. like YEARS! how old is this club anyways? ;)

    I'm still alive, I still live on an island, and I'm vw/audi-less for the first time EVER! Picked up Jill's demo car a few months go, A Subaru Forester with some goodies & she named him Walter.

    This is Walter:

    vid from the SCCA solo event last weekend:

    Cobb: Stage 2[turbo ->back exhaust, engine management w/ AccessPort ~300 crank hp @ 93oct], rear sway-bar, springs w/ wrx struts.
    Rally Armor: flaps & skid-plate
    OZ: 17" Prodrive wheels
    STI: front lip

    I sold my audi 90 to a friend on island went with my first ever non-vwag vehicle. This subie doesn't have the build quality I'm use to but I can't help but smile every time i start this thing up.. it's like a big, rumbly go-kart! I plan on doing lost of SCCA solo events coming up as it's the only legal form of racing they have on island. Lots of nice cars, and skilled drivers out here. They take it more serious out here than when we use to run these in Michigan.. I just go out to drive and beat mustangs :D

    So hello to ALL the new members out here and a BIG ALOHA to my old friends. Maybe I'll start a project thread and keep you up to date on Walter's status.

    I'll be home for my brothers wedding this spring. Can't WAIT!!!

          I was service manager at Subaru here in G'R. for years, I never had a "demo" like that. What does Jill do to get that for a demo?
          I feel a lot more like I do right now than I did when I got here.

                          WHAT'S UP EVERYONE!!!!

                          Things are going really well for me out here. Lots of surf, hiking, traveling around, and meeting interesting people from all walks of life. Lans and Ally came out last year for while, and I was hope for like a day this past summer and met up with some of the GR MiVE crew! In searching through the projects forum I'm glad to see Michigan is still keeping it old school! :D

                          I'm really looking forward to my visit this spring for a week or so.

                              Sounds killer. I love the sound of tuned subbies
