    Nah. Most of it is I need something with an actual trunk and an actual back seat for this upcoming chapter of my life. I was looking at the turbo Subarus (WRX and the Legacy XT, specifically) anyway. The BRZ, fun as it is, and as much as I was planning to drive it until it wouldn't go no mo...

    That other douchebag/fanboy, reporting for duty ;) You know... As soon as my bank can be arsed to close the loan. Also, taking nominations for vanity plates. Because if I'm going to be a WRX douchebag, may as well go all the way. I wonder if anyone has MD-SUBUWU yet.... I know CA-SUBUWU is...

    The Subaru BRZ initially came with an off-the-shelf Fujitsu double-DIN unit that had "Subaru" silkscreened on it.

    Even more than that. Under a purely capitalist economic system, if your corporation isn't maximizing its debt, it isn't efficient. Responsibly paying ahead of the scheduled date (indeed, paying ahead of the first penalty that exceeds average return the corporation could achieve by not paying)...

    Not yet, but I don't see any reason not to stick a Gopro to the roof for at least one of those legs.

    Planning a ridiculous cross-country roadtrip involving: - Two cars - Two car sale transactions - A train - Either a plane, a truck, or a second shorter road trip. I can't do anything normal, can I?

    I wouldn't want to fit anything taller than a Boxer in that nose. Lots of width, not much in the way of height. Then again, IIRC that one guy on Youtube that pisses me off apparently shoved a 2JZ into one, and he sucks.

    A couple grand, delivered to the Amtrak station in either Kansas City or Oklahoma City? ... What kind of hellworld have we come to where Amtrak is the most sensible way to travel without a car?
