My first car was this 2005 Outback. This car caused my entire family to fall in love with the brand and the cars we got after this one only helped to extend this liking towards Subaru rigs. This car travelled with me across the state of Washington with countless trips across the Cascades. Later in its life (around the 300,000 mile mark) I decided it was time to get a different car so that I wouldn't put any more miles on it. In retirement, this car is my Dad's daily driver and he puts it to good use around the house, as you can see in the last photo. :ROFLMAO:

Took a road trip down from Washington to Texas the weekend after they flew up to visit me. I will update my build thread with these activities soon enough.

NICE pics!

That first pic & the one by the steam engine are great. I'm a sucker for vintage trains anyway....

If you are ever down in Duluth, Georgia, there is a railway museum that has vintage steam and diesel engines. One of the old diesels they have and it lives under a shelter roof is the famed Southern Cresent engine.

If you have a chance, search YouTube for Virtual Railfan channel. They have live cameras running every day, and several are located at railway museums. They have a montage of trains every day of the week. The fun part is many of the engineers now know where the cameras are and blow their horns and wave as they go by.

There is one set of cameras at Ashland, VA that captures some good video, especially of cars trying to imitate railroad engines. One Outback tried it an blew out both front tires. [Face Plant].

Thank you! The first picture has been my most recent favorite too! Trains, planes, boats, semis, bikes. I find all fascinating, and carry an active interest towards each mode of transportation, specializing in cars :)

It’s been a rough 6 months with my outback working on it in hopes of free play. Replaced bent wheels, drive shaft, whole brake system, whole coolant system, steering rack, bearings, axle, spark plugs, and this week the engine is being replaced.

It is my dream car, a car that I can pretend to be a wannabe-hot-boy-racer and still use it to load my equipment as a woodworker and a traveling studio photographer.

Here is an example of music video props


Changing brakes and driveshaft


Another pickup of 3x10 joists to turn into tables


New-used engine from Japan


This is the last photo I took before handing the keys to the mechanic to replace the engine.

Glamping in the Kenosha Mountains, Colorado. I was able to go almost everywhere my buddy went in his 4Runner (one rocky climb that I did not dare try however!) and I was able to leave him in my dust on smoother dirt roads. Good fun.
