In Memory of ... and Missing in Action

This thread is dedicated to the sweet rides and great people that we got to know and enjoy but are no longer with us. Whether it is was a vehicle that was parted out, sold off, wrecked or just disappeared from the forum, or a great person we got to know who is no longer with us, lets give them one last chance to shine!


Members, Family and Friends:

Anh-Thi (sirwilliam's wife)

I thought it would be appropriate to start off with SirWilliams wife Anh-Thi. Will has been around since the beginning of the forum and has become good friends with many of us here. He was strong enough to share his experience about his wife's battle with cancer with all of us. A lot of us have never met Will, but his struggle afffected us all and we learned how strong a person could be thru the toughest times.

Update on wife...


Thelonius

Tragedy also took another great member. He was one of the old school members and a great guy!
Subaru Forester Owners Forum
One of our own passes: RIP Al Fox AKA Thelonius


Vehicles:


We have to start off with the FXT that pioneered the modding game for a lot us. Without his expert writeups and pix and how to threads on Scoobymods, a lot of us would have much less useful and interesting vehicles. Thanks Peaty!

I think you just created one I can change the title....again

Creo's FXT was incredibly nice. I honestly don't know if he parted it out or if he still has it though since he isn't around anymore.

Tom @ Kartboy's XT was pure awesomeness... and owned for at least a short while by a celebrity (Weezer drummer Pat Wilson). It was sold at least another couple times and seems to have disappeared into obscurity now.

Also I remember an old black 04/05 from back in the day that had big wheels and a front mount, anyone remember the username? (from before anyone was really running a front mount on a usdm forester)
