Default New brz in Anchorage.

Hey, after being with Mitsubishi my last three cars I have finally switched over to subaru aka the darkside ( to me ) and it feels so good. I honestly never thought I would own one but I went ahead and purchased a sterling silver 2013 brz about a week ago with 6,000miles on it. This is my first time with rwd and I am so excited so rip it up. I am down for things going on all years around, trying to get involved with the groups up here for sure. See you all around

ah Jeff, either your memory is as short as your johnson, you're delusional or both. My money's on the latter.

Back on topic, Buuuuurz, the track is a short drive out of Anchorage in picturesque Butte. You can get some face time with the gang and some seat time in that fun car of yours. Please introduce yourself, I'll be glad to help you out a bit with the track walk.

I got my winter tires off Craigslist. Here, just buy these and call it good. They're awesome.

I already have another new BRZ owner that's getting my used General Altimax studded winters since I'm running up to size 18 for this winter. If he happens to fall through, though, I'll let you know.

We all started AutoX never having done it before. You race your race.

There is no pressure except that you put on yourself.

It's fun and addictive.

And the good thing about it, you actually learn how to drive the car.

Yea I stopped in for a minute or two but didn't see anyone i knew and hadn't seen your post here. I had the 04 sti with all the carbon and was wearing a red hoodie. Next time I'll make sure to say hello. I was trying to find something interesting last night. I ended up watching these two civics make like 8 runs at each other until one blew his head. I felt bad for the guy but still I had to chuckle. His friends were messing with it right after and one of them went to pull the dipstick out and the whole tube came right off.

No I'm wanting to take the body mostly back to stock. Too much can go wrong up here. Between all the rocks being thrown and temp changes something is bound to crack.
