My daily is a 2003 Subaru Outback Limited Edition wagon.....Yes Paris, limited means limited to those poor souls dumb enough to buy one. Subaru is the national car of the mountains of Colorado.

It's all black with about everything - you know, heated everything, leather and great stereo with XM radio.

I had the windows tinted two shades darker then legal. How dark are they? They're so dark, I think the Sopranos might start driving Subaru's.

I bought it new and with 70K on it, there are no scratches or dings. I don't park it in lots where it'll eventually look like my wife's Subaru Forester... all dinged up from the white trash.

I loaded up the rear end for my street rod into the car the other day and managed to break a tail light... there's a couple of hundred bucks I can chalk up to being stupid.

In Colorado, they put crushed granite on the roads in winter. Yes Paris, we'd be happy if it were crushed before they dumped it on the road.... That means a new (heated) windshield every couple of years, but it's better than the salt we endured for years in Wisconsin. No rust here.

We need studded snow tires and all wheel drive just to get out of our four hundred foot driveway and steep hill to the highway, but it's all worth it. We love living in a rural area in the mountains.

Did I mention, in Colorado we only need all wheel drive five days a year, but no one can tell us which days those might be? It's snowed here on June 21st.

Sorry, I do tend to ramble on..... thanks for your indulgence.

I was wondering what that was they spread on I-70, that got so well splashed and sprayed up from the vehicles that were able to pass me (nearly everything else on the road with this truck), and I'm still trying to hose it off when I go through the fuel lanes at the truckstops.
Add to that the red dust from Nevada to the western side of Oklahoma where I hosed a little of it off yesterday, and the 570 miles worth of dust and dead bugs I endured today, and it needs another washing but will have to wait until I can either convince my Fleet Manager into a company paid once-a-month wash, or hope it isn't too cold for the pressure washer at home when I get there next week.

This pic was taken somewhere in Utah, and if anyone wonders about the unit on the front of the trailer, I am pulling a heated trailer, usually used for adhesives, resins and paints transfer in cooler temperatures.

Hey Short shift my second oldest son is your age and he also has 1993 3,000 Gt. It's all red with these humongous speakers lurking in the back with enough vibrations power to blow the top of the rear end off it. Shoot he'd die for a twin turbo, Ltlgto

I use a 200k mile 95 S10 for my work truck. But when I'm home it's either 1 of these, or I have an 02 Custom Sporty with a built motor, or my 72 shovel. But since I have a baby at the house now, it's usually the T-Type.

That's a nice looking ride . Sounds like a good combo too. I love White Camaros. I had a White '77 RS that I put a blown 350 in .

It wasn't my truck you seen, I haven't been there as of yet the closest to anywhere in Texas I have been so far is Amarillo for a load pick-up, and then back on I-40 and into Oklahoma for the night, there are only 185 trucks on JB Hunt's PPG account and not all of them have the decals on the doors yet as they are either new or recent transferred drivers, or new trucks.
