Yeah,
The car is just about done...
It is harder now to finish it, now that It is
being used every day..... Spent much of my time
working on the car(subie loyal 1991) from February
to end of June......... As some of you have been involved
in the thinking proccess by answering my questions.... and
it has been much appreciated......
There at the end I though I was gonna lose it......!!!!!!
First time starting up the car and it wuz blowing more smoke
that an opium room from the 1st dynasty................
But all is well.... It is so well!!!!!
Begginnning of July I rolled "trixie" off the Jack Stands and
drove her from New York to Texas and back in six days round trip....
Covered 14 states in 6 days.... about 3000 miles..... the shocker
here is that (160K).. on this pup.... It used only 3/4 of a quart of
oil........ and it leaked a little out the oil fill tube where it joins the
head(wasn't tightend enough)..... fixed that in virginia...
Yeah, I was obsessively checking the oil and checking for leaks
the whole ride............. the wife was getting tired of it! she was like
don't worry about it.... it is ok..................................
Hey, I finally have a subie that I can change the oil in..........
I don't just add it!!!!!................ she is running like a new car......
Yeah, so back to the name thing.........................
the wife and family saw very little of me those months working on
the car........ She would always make remarks(joking) you are gonning
to go down and spend time with that other woman(referring to the car).
So while on the journey to texas..... the brought it up again........
I said, well if your gonna refer to her as "that other woman" then she
should a least have a name............ So I thought to myself............
what would be a good name.... that is when it came to me......
to go with the (circa burlesque 1920's-1930's) name............
there the name popped into my head..... Trixie!.............
So my Subie has a first name!!!!!!!
I'll post some pics of trixie after I get her buffed out and put her
trim back on.........

anyway,
thanks for all the help and insight......

Micky

They are indeed Trixie little cars.

I call mine the poopenwagen for obviouse reasons. I would capitalize the name but it is not worthy of being classified as a proper noun. :drunk:
