Oh my......just got back from one very nasty ride back from picking up a nice woman's GL 4door in upstate NY.She says the car only sat about three months or so.Never in my life have I smelled something that bad for that long of a time.Windows open,took it well in mid 40's temperature at 55mph++ but by the time we hit the super highway at 65mph+++ I had to roll up all but the passenger side,which was about half+ open....just below level with my nose.I was driving mostly with my sweatshirt pulled up over my nose.
Man,I even brought Ozium with me thinking I'd have to deal with a little mold smell.Well,the trunk had the mold smell going on with the rotted corners sucking up water.Almost wish I could have driven it from inside the trunk instead.Ozium is one of the strongest air sanitizers you can score at most stores.It barely helped and only very temporarily.
I'd have just turned around but the engine runs like a top and is very quiet.And let's face,we've got some issues going on here.
This may have been the spear through the heart of my .....hopefully former..."obsession" with retrieving derelict 80's Subarus.I've been saying I'm going to drop the 80's crap and focus on my 70's and get a nice Impreza.....well,NOW I'm SO ready it's sickening.
I am so tired of the 80's cars taking time away from my life.

The only thing I want is to see either Andrew or myself use that engine and exhaust.
Well,like I said last night Andrew,I think the car should go to Charlie's so it's parts are more easily available.If I'm riding out the winter with any of these cars still around I'd like to see that engine,etc. available to me firstly after all this.
