If the subaru and I are friends much longer, we'll start to look alike.


the subaru and I have been friends for way to long. It has now gotten in the habit of losing things, just like me. For example, when i got to work on saturday, the subie confessed that it had lost it's front blinker somewhere on the trip. Poor little guy.

Since autozone/shucks doesn't sell this part, we went to the U-pick. Amazingly enough, the subaru had a twin that had been in the U-pick lot for 5 days, which means it still had the headlights on it. So, I did little gravedigging (with the help of some guy who was digging out a transmission - I forgot to bring tools- ) and we got us a new front turn signal.

Sadly enough, when we got home, we found out that the dead subaru was wired up differently than my subaru, thus we are still blinkerless. {they signs all over the U-pick parking lot that sya NO WORKING ON CARS IN PARKING LOT!!! - so i thought i'de wait till i got home} The light may be there.....but its not hooked up. Maybe, virginia, this is why people dont use their blinkers - they simply dont work.

Maybe you should have tried to swap subies that one may have run better. -And why would you go to a Pick and Pull and not bring any tools? Hoping your good looks and sex appeal will get you what you want.

well, i didn't bring tools because the guy that gave me the number and address to the place told me that the employees went out and did the picking for you. before i left home, i thought about grabbing something, but i figured there would be someone there w/ a screwdriver. i know - im a shame to the heiner family.

This may be so. However, I doubt that 40-45% of all vehicles on the road don't all suffer from the same ailments as the subie. Sorry to hear the subie is not feeling so well. Hope it gets better soon. But, alzheimers and chronic illness usually doesn't go away until death.

Um, it would be convenient if your subi could die sometime when you come to visit Utah. I could use a few parts for my subi.
