Saw another wagon tonight...
Posted 29 November 2003 - 12:17 AM
Anyway, coming home from Best Buy tonight, I'm heading up 787 when I get behind what looks like a Subaru wagon. At least the body shape is the same... and I'm intrigued. Getting close, I spot what I thought was the Subaru logo on the back end, and the name on the right side. They get off the same exit as I do, and I followed up through Troy a bit. This gets me close enough to see that it's a Subaru wagon, grey, with no rust on the rear door (WOO!). No 4wd emblem, though (but we all know that can be rectified). They drove like it was auto, too.
Anyway, at one point I lost 'em in traffic, but I circled around until I found where it was parked... then I stopped, and left the usual message ("If you ever want to sell this car, let me know. And if you don't, check out www.ultimatesubaru.org" Thanks, Noel").
It was hard to see in the rain and dark, but it looked in such pristine condition body-wise... didn't take too much of a look, since I didn't want to get soaked, and the last thing I need is to appear to be a Subaru stalker.
So I might have a lead on the new Subaru, or it might lead to a new member up here on the boards. Either way, we've made out

Not this one though, from what I saw of it. I might drive by it sometime later in the daylight, just to get a better look. Especially if the owner gets back to me .

Turns out one of his friends (who also works at my store) owns the car, and just happened to be in the neighborhood that night for a party (or something to the same effect). Makes me wonder if he's got another car, since I've never seen the wagon down at the store. Anyhow, as the story goes, he was looking to sell it at one point. I might just have a chance to pick it up then .
Not only that, but the original co-worker is also interested in my Loyale... I might just take it down to the bodyshop and find out how much it'll cost to rough cut & weld the important inspection-related rust holes, nothing fancy, just so it'll pass inspection. Depending on the cost, he might be interested in buying it off of me and having the rust work done on it.
Finally, something's starting to work out

Fooled me. Guess I need to study up some more on the various body silhouettes (sp?) .
Anyway, I lost most of my interest in it at that point... I don't know how much trouble it'd be to lift it, and get a d/r in there instead of the AWD, but I got a feelin' it's more than I want to get into...
