History
The original title was issued in Maryland, then the car was later sold and owned in North Carolina for years. This year, 2015, we bought the car in NC, then drove it all the way back to New York State. We wanted a rust free car, which was the reasoning for buying down south.
2004 Subaru Forester (Pacifica Blue Pearl) with 177,333 miles. She gets me around!
