That ugly 'spruce' green.

Default Hello world.

Well after some fascinating catalytic debate I have pleased NASIOC enough to allow me to post up an introduction.

I've been lurking for a bit and noticed that the VIC here seems to have a generally lower content of 'unpleasant' people than the rest of NASIOC. (How strict is NASIOC on language?)

Anyways I'm a machinist, live in Burnaby and work in Richmond, right by the indoor Kart place. I have a BD Legacy as my daily driver that I will be doing light to moderate suspension mods to, and likely making some of my own parts for. So far all I've done is buy some WRX rims off RMX here, and still haven't bought summer tires yet so they're not even on the car. My other car is a RHD 1JZ Mk3 Supra with light mods, but don't hold that against me.

As a little 'spotted' theme, I finally saw the 'phantom' Subaru that drives by my place. I used to hear this rumble quite often around 11:00pm on Midlawn Drive some time ago, but never saw the car. Finally did on Friday around 4:15pmish. Silver GC with big black wing. Sick looking car. I was parking my green Legacy on the side and may have looked like I was giving a staredown, but I was just amazed to finally see the car. Didn't think to give a thumbs up or anything... oh well.

So yeah that's me basically. How well do you guys treat the non-Impreza people here?

Hello again Burnman You are correct that the people here are pretty chill. I'm sure that you will feel welcome here with your Legacy. There are actually lots of Legacy and Forester drivers on here.

I'll throw one or two up in the Member's Pics sticky. (It's a bit rough...)

Edit: Done.

Thanks for the welcome, guys.

Welcome to the club! You should come out for a mini-meet (Fridays) or a BBT meet (When Link organizes one..)

Welcome to VIC! Glad to see(read) your participation here!

As for your sighting of that "Phantom" Subaru, I know who it is who frequents that area of Burnaby. He's a kool guy - long time member. Give him a wave and you'll be sure to get one back if he notices!

LaterZ!
Darren!!

Hey Burnman, how's it going? I actually lived in that area for the last 22 years but just moved out to South Burnaby recently, so I sometimes go back home to visit my parents and that was when you saw me last week.

I remember a RHD Supra on Midlawn, I used to see all the time over the past 5+? years. Good to know who owns it. I'll stop and chat next time I see ya.

You used to get off work around 11pm? Sweet boxer lullaby around that time.

I actually just bought the Supra about a year ago from my buddy that used to be my room-mate. It's out in Aldergrove until I sort out AirCare and such. If you ever saw it ripping around like an idiot that was him, when it had silver rims on it. For now I'm just in the Legacy.

Awesome to finally see that car after hearing it for years. Like proof Bigfoot exists after only seeing footprints. heh

Yeah, there were times when I worked late shift. I also had a 94 Legacy Turbo at some point so you might've heard her too. I try to quiet things down when I go into the 'hood.

I have a machinist question for you, please check your PM!
