Update: I now have Anthracite wheels and red out tail lights. (came out awesome) Also the place who did my brakes prior never checked my wheel bearing hub, and it's completely Effd at this point. So currently not driving due to that, hoping I can get it fixed and all set sometime this weekend. Big thanks to Tuan for helping me again.

Car is up and running again, friend found another used wheel hub/bearing along with ball joint and it fixed the issue. Could definitely use some SS brake lines, tires, and another alignment before winter 2014 hits. Drives good otherwise almost at 161K.

Feeling very optimistic for next year, going to try and find a better job to help financially, and to upgrade the car's look/performance. Definitely going for a "broke baller budget" though. Hopefully " The forever pro longed paint and rust" wheel upgrade, alignment, new tires, brakes/rear wheel bearings, and lwc pulley.

First storm of the year, was 60 degrees yesterday. This blizzard warrior is ready to brave another New England winter.

Life event update: My father recently passed away Tuesday, posting a remembrance for a war veteran, some of the last words I had with him were actually about my car. I showed him the subaru, and he made a comment about the big wing. truly a funny/ good guy, RIP. dad.

Truly sorry about your loss. Losing a parent is rough. Keep your head up!
