So… the WRX is off to a new home, and I have a new daily/project. I’m already about a month behind on logging the progress, but I’ll try to start here from the beginning.

Even before the WRX was sold, I’ve been wanting a wagon, specifically something German. So I started doing research on the usual suspects. I initially wanted an older A6, but decided it was too common, and E39’s were a little too pricey for this purpose. So it was either an B5 A4 or an E34, but after a while, I kept going back to the old 124 wagons. So I started looking for one, and eventually found one in Long Beach. It was a 95 E320 and only had 122K miles, which isn’t too bad. It was a dark metallic blue, which was nice, but it had the usual minor dings and the front bumper had lost a fight with a parking block at some point.

But it was pretty solid, it drove well, was the right price, and came with some extra maintenance goodies like filters and spark plugs.

The only reason I watched eyes wide shut is because there was an E30 M3 in it.  hahaha.

Spooky Mulder

I thought I’d get in touch with my inner sci-fi geek, so I’m starting to re-watch the X-files from the pilot episode. I forgot how entertaining it is, and how dorky Gillian Anderson looked back then.

So after the move, I dug up a box of my old RC stuff, and found some old body shells that I thought I’d clean up to see how some Team Pogi wheels would look on them.  Here’s the first one, an Alfa Romeo 155 V6.  I had gold on there, but I might try some  black centered ones next.  I think they might go better.

I think I can.

It really has nothing to do with cars, but here’s a hint as to what’s in store for this coming weekend.  Maybe I can sneak away for a while to check out Bimmerfest at the Rose Bowl.
