Well, I think im pretty roosted here in NY!  Just need a sacrificial car for
the winter, and just bought the first car Ive ever owned built in this
century but thats been adding trauma to my automotive experience.

In general, im happy with the Subaru, something about the engine design just
seemed to click with me :-) but something has just been off, or missing...
no, not the CVT that makes me feel like im driving a 49 Buick with the
slushbox, but something else, that I think I finally figured out, for the
first time in my life, Im driving a car this is...


How can you APPreciate a car that DEPreciates?
all my cars have either appreciated or were done depreciating..  this is the
first one that isnt, and knowing that every mile you drive its worth less
does take some of the joy out of driving.

at least it has KNOBS on the controls but without any gauges...  well, thats
another issue!

>Sweet!  Oh to live in a state where they don't salt the  >roads  :-)



You know, there are several companies (Allied Van Lines, North American,
Mayflower, Beakins, Two Men and a Truck, etc.) who have these great big

They will haul all of your "worldly goods" anywhere in the United States.
There are lots of states where they don't salt the roads.

But stay away from the coastline of states that are close to saltwater.
The salt-laden air along  coastline areas will "eat up" your cars.

The movers will even pack up all of your Type 3 tools 'n parts.  ;-)

But you'll have to find another lake for your boat.
Good luck.
