New addition to the '79 today:

Been driving without an inspection sticker since December - not specifically required with the antique auto registration, but now I can put regular plates on and not worry about being hassled. Finally found an old-school import garage in Portland that didn't give me any BS about dried-out wiper blades or whatever. I think they gave me a pass on the emissions test since I live in a non-test county, but the 'E' sticker is nice to see anyway.

386 days before I need to bother with this again. Sweet!

Dave,Congrats!

Hey,I've been thinking of you....often,lately. I have that rear quarter for an EA81 wagon that you won on eBay and I picked up. Still there. Let me know if you can make a run down sometime soon and I'll send you home with plenty of extra stuff.

Thanks, Paul. I keep forgetting about that quarter, seeing as I'm about three cars removed from when I won that auction. I'm more than happy to clear it out of your way, though. This summer's getting away from me quickly - I do have to go down to Westchester in early September, though, maybe can arrange a stop-in on the way there or back if nothing pans out earlier. Will be in touch.

Thanks,
Dave

No sweat,keep in touch. It's tucked away so just give me plenty of heads up time. ;)

I have a friend that'll be headed from the Hartford area to UMaine-Farmington, practically passing right by you...if a relay would work out, perhaps, let me know.

Hmmm...intriguing. Might work - I'm literally five minutes from I-95, could probably hook up at the exit or whatever - would be an easy drop-off passing through towards Farmington.

Actually, Andrew, maybe it makes sense to ask if you'd have any use for that quarter yourself? I'm EA81-less at present, so retrieving it would be more of a "get it the hell out of poor Paul's storage space" proposition than anything else. If it might come in handy for your stable at all, you're welcome to it.

I appreciate the offer, but I'm in the same boat as you..and Paul...not a single EA81 wagon to my name at the moment. Just the one, and it's a convertible. But if I can help you ship it or find it a new home, let me know.

No pressure. We can work it out in the future. Dave,wasn't that like $20 or so? I could just pay you if you want. Money is no where near as tight as it was back then when this thing popped into our lives.

No sweat all around. If it needs to sit here it's not the worst thing to have around. Hangs really nice from walls or ceiling. Right now it lays over a whole mess of bulky parts,so it's acting as a tarp these days.:)

What do you folks have to go through for inspections up there for a 70's Subaru??

We are SO lucky down here lately.

No problem, just wanted to throw it out there. I guess all the cool kids are driving EA71s and earlier up this way right now. Paul, glad to hear you're not tripping over the thing or anything - sounds like it's even proving borderline useful in its capacity as tarp. Same goes for you, though - if you've got a use for it or can sell it or whatever, it's yours, gratis. I'd pretty much written it off a long time back, and I'm sure that, using standard transportation and storage fees, I probably owe YOU way more for the thing than I paid for it.

Inspections up here are a bear, the state has really cracked down to the point where it's tough to find any of the old reliable "lick it and stick it" shops from back in the day. The day I bought the car, I stopped in at Iffy Lube for a no-appointment inspection just for giggles, they failed it based on a dime-sized hole in the floorboard, a dried-up rear wiper blade, cracked sidewall on one tire and a loose CV boot clamp. All good to know, I guess, but c'mon. I plugged the hole, replaced the blade, tire and clamp, brought it back and they failed it again for a pinhole exhaust leak at one of the welds. That's when I gave up and registered as an antique auto (inspection exempt), but the regulations for use on those plates are seemingly intentionally vague so as to make it easy to get nailed for improper use, so I'm much happier with a valid sticker from a shop that's a little more realistic about old cars.

Maine ain't what it used to be. :-\ At least it's beautiful up there.

Thanks,and it'll most likely be here if you ever do need the quarter.;)

See you in September? :) I know I'd like to head up your way sometime,again. We love Maine and Nova Scotia. :headbang: Should be making a run to NH/VT soon,so maybe we'll do a swing on over run and hit Old Orchard or Freeport for JunkyardGabe's place. I'll be sure to call ahead when/if it happens.

cheers!
