The Mad Max Mobile

So Everyone has one of those friends that makes you laugh every time you hang out with them. My friend Buzz is kind of like that...

A couple of weeks ago, I was out driving new trucks and was thinking about trading in the chalet subaru, but couldn't bring myself to do it. At the local brewery, Buzz decided that it was stupid that I buy a new car, so he just pulled out his keychain and gave me the keys to his pickup truck.

I was laughing so hard, that I couldn't help it. My stomach hurt, my eyes were tearing, and for some reason I thought it was hilarious that someone just gave me a car at the bar. Well, it turned out that I didn't sell my car for a while, and when it was about to sell, Buzz handed over the keys once again and off I went in the mad max mobile...

Its a great little truck that has about 1000 cracks in the windshield, the heater sounds like a jet plane, and the door doesn't stay closed sometimes, but it runs great, and the price was right. In appreciation for all of his support, I thought it was a good idea to pick up the tab for a couple of rounds of margs.... Thanks Buzz!

So here are some more details about my car.

it is a 2003 WRX with 129,000 Miles on it. i have been the original owner, and I know what has happened to this car. I have all of the maintenance records. It has had all of the recommended service, and at 120K I replaced the head gasket, water pump, O2 Sensor, (timing belt was 100K), Clutch and Flywheel, thermostat, and radiator, as well as the hoses. The tires are 50,000 mile tires that were purchased in november. They don't have very many miles on them at all.

This car has been my baby for a long time. I have carried around boats and skis and bikes and people for the past 6 years, and there are a couple of marks on the car to prove it. Someone backed into me and broke my rear tail light, and the door to my fence bashed into my car during one of the wind storms. The interior is in good condition, a couple of stains here and there in the trunk, but the car runs great.

It has an updated head unit, and speakers, so you can play MP3 cds, and get some good sound. The shift knob is a rock, which may seem a little weird, but it actually feels pretty good. There is plenty of space in this car for your gear, but my big fuzzy dog would like something a little bigger, with a little more clearance.

Please contact me if you are interested, and would like to meet up.

I am open to offers, but am asking $7900.... the car is super fun to drive, and is running very smoothly....
