"New To Me" 2006 Fozzy
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:47:35 AM »
Hey guys, been awhile since I've been on here, or even in the Subaru scene for awhile. But I just picked up a used 2006 Subaru Forester X, it is a 5 speed manual transmission, 165XXX on the clock.  Pretty clean cosmetically, mechanically not perfect (oil leaks, minor fixes here and there). I work at Subaru so I have parts and lifts at my disposal if anything were to happen. My plans for the car as of right now is it will be daily driven and fixed up piece by piece along the way. I will post a couple pics, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Welcome back!  I love the older boxier Foresters.  Sounds like it shouldn't be too difficult to get 'er back to full fighting strength.

Said you hadn't been on here in awhile.  What'd you have before?

I wish we had more events in Lincoln like we used to.  It's been several years since I've seen a meet hosted there outside of a weekly or bi-weekly get together.

The last bigger event I remember in Lincoln was in 2012 at DuTeau Subaru and there was quite the cruise afterwards. I believe it was the scenic route to and around Branched Oak State Park.

Edit: 08/17/2017, Major maintanence was performed. Oil change, transmission/front diff, and rear diff fluids were replaced. When I bought the car there were no maintanence records on the car, so my initial goal is to put in all new fresh fluids, including, P/S, brake fluid, clutch, and coolant. I will keep you guys posted as well as post pictures!

Welcome back!

2005 STi, OBP, was in Lincoln area though.

If I'm not confusing you with someone else, we cruised O St a time or two, the memorable one was afterfire and revs in the covered part of Gateway Mall turning around to head West again...
