This post is for my friend and fellow car guy Ben W., who originally connected me with the Subaru. 🙂
My Subaru Forrester, now in its ninth year although still with very low mileage, has been reliable, safe, gas efficient, and retains enough pep to roar up the steep Queen Anne hill. Now it has a new achievement, or descriptor: capacious.
Sara and fiance’ Ben S. [different Ben from above] borrowed my Forrester to leave at the airport as they went to Austin to clean out Ben’s house. They returned with 500 pounds of luggage, all of which miraculously fit into the back of the car. No, they didn’t have to drive up any of Seattle’s monster hills on their way home, but home they are — this pic is taken in their garage.
