little deuce coupe

June 10, 2009

I know I’ve talked before about how much I love my car. I mean, loved my car. I really really did. I had the last year of the Baja that Subaru made, with a turbo, in mint condition. It had a bike rack and a tonneau cover and ski racks and did everything I wanted a car to do.


Every time I drove it I imagined S sitting next to me, us on our way to some adventure or outing or just for a drive. Mind you, I tried to create new good memories in that car, and, to some extent, very well succeeded, but….it just wasn’t enough. In addition, the loan and the title were all in her name as well and I just…needed to make a clean break.


This speed machine is now mine. 265 hp. 0-60 in 4.8 seconds. Shiny. Bucket seats. Awesome stereo. Mean looking. Really really fun to drive – seriously, I love it already even though I’ve never owned a 5 speed before and am not the best driver…yet.

But I do look at the car and smile.



  1. dang girl, that’s some power! we just switched our 2008 outback for a 2009 forester. i just felt too cramped in the outback. ahhh, back to the forester (we had a 2005 prior to the outback).

    • Yes. It’s a lot of power. And it will be even better when I figure out how to drive it!

  2. What a lovely thing!! Yes, I am coming to town from the 1st to the 10th, get ready!
