And yeah... Screw this stupid weather. I haven't been out much lately due to pneumonia, but I think I'm finally over it so I decided to drive up to Big Rapids to visit with friends. Wow, that was a fun drive back.

I can't make any sense of that.

Were you trying to say "Does it have two black wings, supposedly?"

I really hope nobody put a double decker (carbon fiber?) wing on a Subaru, because then someone would have to die for that crime.

I guess that could also be interpreted as having two single wings, and if that's the case I really hope that means they still have the original wing IN the trunk rather than ON the trunk... Or heaven forbid, on top of the existing wing. Because if it literally has two wings on it, that person should have a restraining order against them preventing them from being near a Subaru.

All I can think is Dubois.

Nick

there is a shop in Wayland called Marcotts collision (it's right across the street from a carstar, don't confuse the two) anyways they do show quality work at a decent rate if that's what you're after.

Got home from work today, parked in the garage, came out out an hour or so later and there was a goddamn kitten laying in my hood scoop. Must have been cold or something. It was kind of cute Even though I really can't stand cats. So, Nick I guess you were right. Tiny kitty prints.

lol... I'm assuming you didn't get any pics? Would have been a fun one to show to people who think that the scoop sucks things into the engine.

A few years ago I walked outside to see a deer standing in front of my old Outback. He was staring right at the emblem, like confused people do when they are trying to figure out what it is. He took off as soon as he saw me, a shame as it would have made for a funny picture.

So we were supposed to just cut that damn rubber hanger.
... or we could have cut the head off that mounting bracket bolt and pulled it through the other side to drop the entire assembly.

So I found an industrial building downtown to use as a garage for my cars, tools, parts, etc. Still looking for other options since it has a dirt alley to get to the garage.

I was wondering if anybody knew of a good location (downtown) with under 1,000sq.ft. and a garage door available.

I was going to say "It's a Subaru!" but noticed you also have a Grand National, one of my favorite cars of all time. I wouldn't want to drive that down a dirt alley either. Not sure what else you have, but if you have that much of my taste, I can imagine.

I'll have to ask my friend where it was, but several years ago a friend of that friend rented some huge space downtown. He technically lived there, but it was an industrial building with a garage door. I just remember that rent was a fraction of an apartment, and he filled it with ramps for indoor skating, the primary reason for being there.
