Seriously... That was kind of a punk move. If Ben wanted everyone to know what happen, he would have said something. He built a great car and shared a ton of information with the community. The least everyone can do is let him be and not fill a great thread with speculation about what happen to the car.

Not to mention that ridiculous insurance auction thing that blatantly states that car was white not black so stop going people false ideas and leave this thread for what it is a great source for info on how to build these cars to each level

You guys whining for pictures and details are the reason a lot of us don't bother sharing our builds in any sort of detail. You're only ruining things for yourself by being disrespectful to xluben.

Glad nobody got hurt in whatever happened.

I'm pretty sure we both have kids around the same age and honestly, you're not going to have time to play with cars as they get older and start getting into everything. Take a break, spend time with the family, and get back into modding cars when he can turn a wrench and bust his knuckles on suspension parts.

No surprise you're all into this. Just dirty to talk about it on his thread whether it is or isn't his car. At least take the talk else where

I'm not into it, but that is was his car. I totally respect his right to keep what happened private, but the the car is no longer his and what's left of it is up for sale on a public auction site.

Dude, if you actually respected his right, you would have stopped mentioning it the day he said it was gone.

I did, someone just said that wasn't his car so I said it was. I never once asked what happened to it.

This is all I said about his car after he said it was gone. At this point someone else tracked the car down and I don't see the point of denying that it was his car..its out there now..oh well...I wasn't the one who posted it.

Glad to see that everyone is okay and it wasn't some wreckless high speed crash.

Not to bring it up, but I just wish he could disclose the likely cause of the fire, as I'm sure it presents valuable advice to someone. The precautionary take-away here though is blatantly clear.

It'll buff out.


I'm honestly curious that no one has mentioned NF. They obviously jumped in on this build just before disaster. Seems like an unlikely random occurrence.

I wouldn't blame NF either. They have worked on my car and I am vouching for them.

Sorry for the loss Ben, hope to see the Forester at some point in time!

Jeezus let this thread rest. Speculate via PMs or in your own minds. It's obvious that Ben didn't feel like sharing what happened with everybody and I'm sure he doesn't want to read about all of these theories either. Don't make it worse for him people.

if you ever followed this thread you would see NF was a part of this car forever. Everyone should stop blaming anyone and Ben has every right to keep all this info to himself. I'm happy the link was taken down. In due time I'm sure some explanation will come of this. That is his disclosure. Everyone please stop.
