WRX: 100,000 Miles of Fun

Monday, August 13th, 2007 · 2 Comments

The summer of 2007 is flying by, as summers always do. I’ve had a 3-week blogging hiatus and keep meaning to catch up on all the excitement of our action-packed, non-stop summer fun — we’ve already been to the track 7 times, celebrated many a happy hours, seen a few movies, and more. As with […]

WRX Fog Lights

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006 · No Comments

Yesterday I researched and found a new (used) passenger-side fog light for the WRX. I think it was last winter some time (or even the one before?) when Jen was fortunately able to leverage the power of the all-wheel drive to steer out of a slide and into a snow bank, rather than into the […]

NY Driver Fighting PA Speeding Ticket

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006 · 4 Comments

The last time I got a speeding ticket, I tried fighting it by mail using a radar trap speed defense. I didn’t win, but I did get the fine reduced and got to attend online traffic school to have the ticket wiped clean from my California driving record. Following last week’s 80 in a 65 […]

80 in a 65

Sunday, January 15th, 2006 · 1 Comment

During the final 30 minutes of Thursday’s eight-hour drive to Pittsburgh for my grandfather’s funeral, I was pulled over. I was (allegedly) doing 80 in a 65, but driving in the slow lane and being passed by a number of folks doing at least 90 with Pennsylvania plates. Cops love to get out-of-staters because they […]

Oil Change

Thursday, May 12th, 2005 · 6 Comments

Yesterday after work I picked up from my local Subaru dealership the crushed aluminum oil pan washers that the parts guys failed to give to me the day before when I bought a couple Subaru oil filters. Then it was off to Nat’s place for my 57,415-mile oil change. The last one we did was […]

Rain

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005 · Comments Off on Rain

I got the car washed on Saturday using a free coupon that Jen won at work. At select locations, it would’ve been good for a full inside and out wash, but at our local Hoffman’s, which apparently does a more thorough inside job (they really do a great job, despite some kid’s having stalled my […]

Letter

Thursday, April 22nd, 2004 · Comments Off on Letter

It always pays to write a letter when you have a bad customer experience. After writing the below letter, I received a prompt response and $50 worth of free car wash coupons. Not bad for 10 minutes of my time. April 7, 2004 Hoffman Car Wash ATTN: Manager 5 Lowes Drive Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 […]

Early Daze

Thursday, September 18th, 2003 · Comments Off on Early Daze

I went for a drive at 3:30am this morning, followed by a leisurely walk around the tranquil streets of San Francisco. Of course, I would have much rather been enjoying the deep sleep I had been in minutes before. For the second day in a row I was awoken in the wee hours of the […]

WRX vs. Corvette

Thursday, August 7th, 2003 · 1 Comment

My post to a craigslist forum string: I just read through this discussion. As an owner of a 2002 WRX wagon (http://gabeanderson.com/wrx), I can say that it is one seriously kick-ass car. Let’s start by pointing out the obvious: You’re comparing the WRX to a CORVETTE. That in itself speaks volumes. Of course a (stock) […]

New Clutch

Wednesday, June 25th, 2003 · Comments Off on New Clutch

With 19,866 miles on the odometer, the Scoob has a brand spankin’ new clutch as of today. And wow, what a difference a clutch makes! The old one had this morning jitters problem wherein the car would jerk when starting in 1st some mornings. It wasn’t all the time, but enough to annoy the hell […]
