I was wondering what that was all about. What a bunch of verbal diarrhea. The ramblings of a truly disturbed mind.

Lilly, our 91 Westy has been sick since Buses on the Rive(2010),AAA delivered her to Chriss @ Ashville VW, he medicated her and we limped home to Wilmington. Missed Every Bus and Natural Buss this year. We shipped her to upstate NY for rehab session by Vanaru. Doc Hans installed a 2.5 Subie(2,700 miles), upgraded tranny(higer 3rd/4th gears) from Darel(AA Transaxle), clutch, cv joints, complete front end rebuild. Hans and Nel`lie personally returned Lilly(952 miles). I hope to drive her soon, I broke my clutch ankle @ High Country and the Doctors screwed me back together and now another rehab. Don

I do a lot of subie work, they are bad about oil leaks, and the later ones have head gasket issues, also they are an interference motor and a lot of components are one year only and they aren't easy to rebuild. otherwise they are good motors later md

I drove Lilly yesterday---runs great, lots of power and handles very well. Perfect traveling and camping vehicle now---look forward to when Don can push the clutch in so he can drive it. Until then, I am available to serve as the pilot.

It's better to install a spare part in your driveway than to find out it doesn't fit at the side of the road.
