Well, I figure I should probably start one of these soon or else I'll get so lost in what all I've done that I'll just say f*ck it,
At any rate, I picked up my 2004 Subaru Forester 2.5XS back in September of 2011. She had just over 83,000 when I rescued her from the B-Lot I found her on. The mileage was pretty good and she had all the options I was looking for as well as being in the PERFECT color. She was, however, a little worse for the wear as it was apparent that any of the previous owners didn't quite love her like they should've. Originally, the B-Lot was asking $12,500 for her but after some "negotiating", I was able to whittle them down to $8,700 and decided that was good enough.
I had actually been searching for the better part of about 2 years but really started in earnest back in May when I did some work to my "other car" that basically made it to where it wasn't really Winter capable anymore. I'd been toying around with the idea of picking up a Forester for a while and think that they make great, multi-purpose vehicles with TONS of potential for all sorts of stuff......not to mention the styling isn't too shabby either.
My "other vehicle" is being slowly but surely transformed into a purpose built track car so I wanted something that would do me well but I could still have some fun with and work on when/how I wanted. This lead me to have the idea of building the Ultimate DD for myself. I have many many plans for my "Fozzy" but for now, she will be my Project 2.5XSTi.....
