Mom Jeans Strictly Prohibited

7 Nov

When the Forester came out, it was a New England mom’s dream. Now they could join the Subaru party and ditch the Chrysler minivan they had to endure in the past. But let’s face it, the Forester wasn’t much of a looker.

Then Subaru dropped in the Turbo 2.5 engine, and suddenly, some ears perked up. Now the car had a bit more of an edge. Some Hyde to go with the Jekyll. But the vehicle was largely lost in the wake of the WRX and STi. Of course we never got the cooler STi Foresters sold in Japan.

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. So for those who wanted to Zig rather than Zag, people have began taking these Foresters and doing some cool things with them. Subaru’s are the VW’s of Japan – virtually everything swaps into everything else more or less.

While certainly not common to mod, this represents an awesome canvas for someone who wants a great platform to build on, has a budget in mind, and doesn’t want to go tearing into a brand new car. But, wants to maintain reliability, interior space, and the safety and performance benefits of AWD.

Mo’ Orange

Back in 2009 posted a couple pics of a certain orange NSX https://cornerbalance.wordpress.com/2009/04/25/orange-crush-installed/

Same car shown here, at a track day – absolutely, one of the best examples of an NSX out there, and a car who’s design clearly has aged well!

Garage Mak has been hard at work developing new aero for the 350Z. Interesting rear bumper, but what I really dig is that ducktail spoiler
