History I hunted and hunted for the right color and trim level. Could never find it. Was going to "settle" for my 2nd choice color when my sales guy (Palm Springs Subaru) sent me a text with a photo of my perfect choice - Limited with Marine Blue! YAY! I was there at lunch time to start the process and then home and then back again after work to finish the paperwork and sign all the damn docs..!

I've always been a car guy - and have always been involved in car culture when possible. Another ride (currently parked in my port) is a 2001 PT Cruiser Limited that has been customized and has won awards in show - including an audience favorite for best in show.

So I've been bit by the mod-bug before and am now having a relapse...

Fozzie is getting upgrades, going a bit more butch than being a Ginger Grocery Getter...

My first time behind the Subaru logo was in the late 90s when I purchased a 10 year old (1987) Subaru "DL" wagon with 4WD. Cost was $700 bucks and the beast had 260+ thousand miles on the clock. Only issue was a small wear spot on the driver seat bolster. Drove this beast for about 60K miles in a year and a half and blew a head gasket. $1200 repair on a 700 car..? Nope. So my "Subeast" was sold off for parts.

Other vehicles filled the void. In 2008, I wanted to pick up an Impreza Sport, but they only had WRX models at my local Subaru dealer. I wanted sporty, but economy was more important. So I got a Mazda 3....

The Mazda needed replacement and that's when Fozzie Balou came along.
