It's been a while since I've taken real care of the old marshmallow, but yesterday she even got a wash and wax with the new wheels! I don't think I've waxed her in 2 years! And it's been quite a while since I've taken pics, too. But anyways, here's a couple not-so-great pics of the old wheels and new tires (275/40 front and 295/35/18's rear), bodywork and paint, and the stance without the airride on the Vogtlands. I've got about a thousand miles on the motor and drivetrain. So far, so good!

I need to take some better pics before I put her away. Hopefully some of the guys at the BADASS Fall Roundup today got some pics I can snag.

Anyways, the pics!




I need to get better ones! Soon, I hope!

Best tire size you can run, IMHO. I have been using that combo for a long time on the SS.

We should meet in North Conway so I can give you the seats!

No, they're within a half inch of each other. 275/40's are 26.5" and 295/35's are 26" Smile

Thanks guys. Smile

Man, have I missed driving this car! And EVERY time I stop and get out somewhere, someone always comes up to me about it! Love it! Very Happy

Here's a couple pics I snapped when switching the wheels over yesterday.

I can confirm that the car does exist and is still on the road. And it makes a very noisy entrance. cheers

Good to see it on the road. I still like that one a lot, especially the hood.

Did you clean the interior as well??

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here, Mike... Wink I did a quick vacuum and armor all, but the interior is a mess. Black leather rear seat, charcoal 12 way bonnies up front, and blue door handle surrounds... She's a mess inside til I settle up on what I'm doing in there! I think I'll have all winter to think aboot it. Wink

If I can get those unlimited ruby red seats, i may just sell my bonnies... We'll see! Very Happy

I can almost see Mike cringing in his seat,oh no a mismatched set of seats and just used armor all!The pain the pain!
Dont be surprised if you get an anxious visitor in the middle of the night with his own cleaning stuff and a generator!

Nice looking wagon. Only thing is, I can't tell the different between the 'old wheels' and the 'new wheels'.....

It was fun reading your Subaru experience a while back. Used to like those - a lot. Not so much since reading your story. Next I notice you're considering a S4 in your future? Just take the money you threw at the Subbie, double it, then throw in horrible engine compartment access for the whipped cream........ I had a used A6 for a while. Money pit. But if you're jumping in, get a S6 instead. Nicer ride and handling.

Thanks. Smile

So I searched my hosted video archive and found a lame idle video from just after I got it back together... I thought I had more. Oh well, sorry! Play it through good speakers or headphones. Wink

Here's when I first fired it with the new motor in it...





I coulda sworn I had some vids with the new exhaust on it... Those vids all had the stock pipes, summit turbo mufflers and resonators deleted. But they did have the CIA Tri-Y headers with no cats...

I am still looking.... Wink
