Matches the paint...

I’ve hortiblyabused the paint on this car. Look at the scratches the twins didhelping me scrape snow off one winter, with a steel edge shovel...

On edit,..yesterday I drove ALB to Allentown PA to Piscataway N.J. , Queens , Melville, BROOKHAVEN, Port Jeff, Bridgeport CT, Lee MA, back to ALB

I love boost.
Yikes - that was some miles...

Bridgeport Ferry was the water crossing - although a T5 is fast enough to do it, the Rs get wet.

Yesterday -
Loaded it up on a roll back with a new engine.
Headed off to the shop to have a transplant as well as a bunch of other stuff done to it.
Can honestly say im looking forward to driving it again with everything working as it should.
Have work to do to it once I get it back but thats mostly cosmetic and a few more performance items before I call it quits on it.

Been daily driving a 2018 S60 for the last few months while the S70 sat in the garage.

Eastern states are so small and cute. There's what, six or twelve of them in this trip? :D

Spun the T5 up through the breaking fall colors in the Andirondacks, and met more interesting MVS people making their way through this challenge called life.

Rekindled a 10 year old business idea and moving it forward.
