Or will I be the only lonely FXT in a myriad of F150s:icon_frown: :tissue:
Any Subaru tuning shops in the Nashville / Chattanooga area???

Good bye #@$% road Salt ! Fox's undercarriage is happy...no more Michigan's weather to endure.

I'm in Smryna. There aren't many XT's around the Nashville area, maybe 4 or 5 that I see on occasion, including myself. You're trading the crazy winter weather (although this past winter had more snow than I've seen in a while) for crazy spring weather and pollen. It's not too bad though.

I would recommend Forged Performance in Atlanta now that Scott left at Topspeed to work there. If and when I ever do anything to my car that needs tuning, he's the guy I would want to do it.

Didn't realize you were coming southward. I'm in Indiana, but southern so I'm on the Kentucky border. I make it down to Nashville probably twice a year. Might have to hook up with you guys sometime.

I am in Nashville/Hermitage and have only seen maybe two or three other FXT's. Wasn't that HUGE sink hole on 24 around Manchester, I don't know if 24 is open yet? So when are you coming?

Yeap, my new workplace happens to be 1 mile away from the sinkhole, coincidentally the sinkhole was formed the same day I went to visit, what a royal mess (Honda Japan engineers were so freaked out ha ha).

Final move is end of June :woohoo:, still training in Detroit :tissue:.


The sooner I move, the sooner the 18G install will materialize...company car (Accord :yell: or Insight :censored:) will finally give me the liberty to start messing up with el Fox.

Wow, what a small world ! and I thought I would never see the light of another Forester in these latitudes, let alone a modified Fox, and for icing on the cake Kamil's ! hanged out with Kamil in Chicago when I lived in MI, he is going to get out a kick when he finds out. I was dismayed last week when I found out he sold his beloved Fox, so I am glad to find out is in good hands and owned by a fellow sf membe. You now, your Fox and mine helped achieve a world Guinness Record in July 11, 2009

The largest parade of Subaru cars - Spain, Guinness World Records Blog post - Home of the Longest, Shortest, Fastest, Tallest facts and feats

you will recognize your car in these pics taken during the event:

Your car is the first from the right, mine the fourth Gray Silver



Your car second from the left, mine next to the right with the huge scoop long gone now



Your car leading the way for the Forester crowd



Official Guinness Record count keeper, took this pic from my moonroof while crossing the finish line



Hope you can make it to the Tail.

Ohh and here are the Chicago Suburb Police Escorts that blocked traffic for us, amazing experience.

I'm pretty sure Jess STI lives near me, because I've seen a WRB Forrester that looks like his a few times in my part of town.
