    The car started to accumulate some minor issues with the AC compressor, Power steering pump, and it started to slightly overheat a few days ago. I replaced the compressor, PS pump, and radiator cap with those from the RS30 so it is okay for now, but every Subaru I have owned started to develop multiple minor issues like this around the 200-225k mark.

    Since I am not the only driver of the car, and I did not want one of these issues to crop up while my wife or daughter was driving, we decided that it was time to replace it with a newer car. Enter: A 2010 Subaru Forester X Limited.

    Now it is time to sell this car. I just need to finish installing the rear shocks, and to swap out the front calipers.. and then I will start an official FS thread. This car will be priced to move. I need the parking space more than anything else as I currently have two and a half cars parked on the grass at this point.

    I am so excited about this. I have plans to keep this thing fresh, but not planning on any drastic departures from it's current state.

    Well, between that photo and home, the power steering decided that it preferred not working, and started acting up. Oh, well. It's still good enough to get me to work and back for now, and no good project car comes without a project or two, for starters. I'd kinda prefer to go Subaru Genuine for the replacement, but with a reman unit being less than half the price, budget is going to have to win out this time.

    Also, had to take a victory photo, in the same spot my '99 decided to give up on me. You can take the Legacy away from the boy, but you can't keep the boy away from the Legacys.

    Well, that's what comes of buying nothing but sub-$1k cars. This is only the second car I've ever owned that I've paid more than a grand for. And, the only other car in that category, my Del Sol, was an absolute champ. Never should've sold it.

    So, the power steering is fixed (thanks yet again, Rob,) and the Blitzen is an absolute champ. Found out that it needs new control arm bushings, but at 177k, that's not a huge shock. Not crazy expensive either. I'll just be replacing them for now, but I think I may upgrade them in the not-too-distant future.

    Took a 3 hour drive up into Massachusetts for some barbecue. Regretting it this morning. Not sure this driver's seat is agreeing with me... hmmm... WRX seat time? Maybe?

    Also replaced the fog lights with yellow bulbs that, frankly, dont look all that yellow.

    I'd rather have the seats from any of my first gen. leggy's-though, I think the seats in my first gen. 'preza are the same. We should meet up along with Rob-before the R.I. / WBM later this summer
