I've an aunt and uncle in the Spokane area, and they even like me! So trips to Spokane (and Spauldings!) are every few months or so.

Why? need something wrenched on or were you considering donating parts to those who come visit. because that would be awfully nice of you to donate parts, yup, mighty friendly and neighborly of ya there... :rolleyes:

I am new this but it would be sweet to go to the ORV parks or something.  Was just at Spaulding last Sat.  Nice hatchback and a complete turbo motor in there.

anything for a 77/78? I need interior bits like-oh-for-example front seats...

Kinda difficult to manage driving from such an aftward position.

 

distantly (from the steering wheel)

Oh, by-the-by...would it be prudent to even consider bringing a front wheel drive Subaru to an off road vehicle park?

Because I can vividly envision a "Hey Tangos* stuck...Again...somebody go winch him out...again...goodness how imprudent of him to even consider bringing a front wheel drive to an off road  vehicle park...he's definately NOT invited to the wine tasting after...what an onager!"

 

*Tango, my other nickname, usually for those who cannot pronounce Tsuru, or forget that there are some who call me...Tim...

I still haven't got my brake drag fixed, it totaly makes it worthless for off roading since the brake drag makes just one of my front tires to spin no matter what I do. I still need to put my new engine and trans in too :P

Nope it's a stick with an open diff, brake drag on the left makes my right tire spin no matter what I do. I almost got stuck in a mud pit near me cause of this.
Have fun, wish I could make it, but i can't.

There is rumor of a brat local to Missoula, Montana. I think, it is a later model (four rectangular headlamps and t-tops reportedly in good shape).

The good part of the rumor is that the owner wants to sell it and is asking $1500 (one thousand five hundred US dollars!) for it! I have yet to see the vehicle again and as I said, its just rumor at this juncture. even though the source is in my opinion utterly reliable.

If I find out more  I'll pass it along to the group. I'd hunt it down for myself, but I cannot afford anything right now with both my vehicles down, and several out of state gigs coming up.

 

By the way, I'll be in Kamiah Idaho this weekend if anyone wants to drop by and say hi!

Its the annual Sawgrass Idaho Bluegrass association festival at the Lewis and Clark Resort in Kamiah.

(its also my birthday saturday, so I'm spending it on stage! Woohoo!)

there will be a passel of folks present so just look for the bass player with Mike and Tari Conroy's band, we are borrowing a fiddle player just to round out the group.

Find me and say hi! I'll be the guy with the 1949 Kay Blonde Bass, its not all that difficult to spot, and most of the other two Blonde Kays that I'm aware of are being played by womenfolk.

You can just show up for some really good music! (I like the stage acts, but Jamming after is what I live for. I'll likely be on bass all weekend, maybe break out the mandolin, or the dulcimer...not sure, Show up, bring an instrument and jam with us!

I could even try and find you someone to get a lesson from if you are a beginner. but the best way to learn is just jump in with your guitar (fiddle, mandolin, banjo) join a jam and play along.

 

sorry If I hijacked the thread and carried it way off topic, that was not my intention, Just wanted fellow Subaru folk to know that there might be an inexpensive BRAT roaming the streets. and that I'll be wandering in Kamiah this weekend and would enjoy meeting other Subaru folk!

 

so if you show up, let me know!

 

Busily,

Timothy
