The CV boot at 30k seems strange. Most of the time when those go early it's because it got pinched somehow.

The timing belt was changed today. Props to Wales Garage for their Subaru expertise. I've run autocross with Ben and he has an '06. Plus he lets me hang around, stick my head in and ask questions.

I'm late again.

The radiator randomly cracked while on a short drive while sitting in traffic. Seems like it was just time to go. Fortunately, I got somewhere safe before it overheated.

So I swapped in a Mishimoto radiator and silicone hoses. Daily driver once again. 90k miles and counting.

Just broke 90k miles. I ordered a set of hella supertone horns after getting into a few traffic fights the other day.

Off the top of my head, I last ran in 2011 or so.

I knew Ben and Jerry the best. In fact, I still go to Ben's garage for work sometimes.

I moved up to Orlando in 08.

Ben was the best man in my wedding. Small world.

Tell him I said hi next time you see him.
