Just got a message from the dude who bought my car, not the one i sold it to but another one who just bought, car is taupo based now. made me so happy to hear it's in the hands of an enthusiast now. he's having some basic repairs done to it and then he's gonna go on a journey to get it forged and probably upgrade turbo etc, so cool! have redirected him to join clubsub, hopefully he will join in to this awesome community and get as much amazing help and friendship as i did. he was sadly told a few lies from previous owner that it's forged etc. but sounds liek a good dude and will treat her right. a solid reminder to ask for all receipts when buying a car and without proof, assume it isn't what they tell ya.
old v7 is alive and well! this makes my day
as for my current car, i haven't posted much about it here.. i've really calmed down on mods and the whole car scene. i kind of miss being part of the community and showing up to meets (not that i did that much anyway) but at the same time i always found it super awkward so i just tend to do my own thing still.
now 7 months on of having this v11 i've done 10,000km and shes going strong. in this time i still love everything about it, hence not compelled to modify further at all. the car as is has a great balance of power, handling, economy and comfort. if anything in future i'll probably change to proper coilovers but then that involves a cert and we all know my paralyzing fear of certs process right? this car has been very cheap to run, despite how crazy i drive at times. having said that my baselines for previous cars is the thirsty v7 and the 3.7L skyline so take it with a grain of salt.
this picture is car doing one of the things i bought it for, taking me out on all kinds of regular adventures, which have done so much of.. and i get to enjoy driving the twisty roads in all their glory i don't know those other two subi drivers but i parked next to them and took this photo
@JordanfromNZ driving on roads like these every weekend (and sometimes during the week when astro chasing) is why my car is always dirty stop #dirtyshaming me LOL
hope everyone on clubsub is doing well, good time leading up to christmas!
