very loud noises!


Well today the inevitable happened.  After 3 long months of unemployment I was contacted by an insurance rep. on behalf of ICU.  They are the institution that holds the loan note on my car.  So as of Friday March 12th 2010 at 10 a.m. I will no longer have my Subaru WRX.  It will be nice not to have to fork out that $500 a month in insurance and car payments, but I sure will miss her.  The last four years have been a glorious road experience, filled with high RPM’s, curving mountain roads, and the occasional four wheel drift onto I-5 off of the Iowa Street on-ramp. 

I spent a good hour and a half today in the cold and rain dismantling what I could in ways of after market parts on the vehicle.  My most favorite moment was laying upside down under the steering column with half my body in a freezing mud puddle, just so I could fiddle with two test connectors while reverting the ECU back to stock.  Sucking on the dirty ass flash light so I could see was fucking awesome as well.

I guess I may have to change the name of my blog now…maybe I’ll call it Me, Ru, and a Bus Full of Crazy A-Holes That Smell Weird.  Actually, that is kinda funny.  Well that’s my little rant today.  I’m open to ideas on a new title.  Take care all.

  1. I think I'm just as sad and bummed as you are. That totally sucks! I hope you can find an old 4-Runner or something that you can go off-road with and still fit Ru in it too. I'm sure it won't replace your Suby though.
