As some of you may remember I moved to MN last April from British Columbia and left my 93 Legacy up there. Well this April I finally flew back home and picked up my wagon and drove it 1600 miles back to Minnesota. I went and picked up the car where it was stored outdoors under a car cover. Other than the typical bugs and spiders I was faced with a tree branch that fell on the car denting the roof and breaking the A pillar molding and the remains of what seemed like multiple mice living in the car. I got over the horrid smell inside the car connected the battery and turned the key....and nothing. Not seeing any chewed wires and having good fuel pressure we bump started the car down the hill and she fired right up! little bit of smoke from the tail pipe but was to be expected after sitting for a year. starter must have just been stuck because I turned it off and turned the key back on and it fired right up again! We were on our way. I was only in Kelowna BC for 3 days before making the drive home so we brought the car into my brother's shop and started going over everything. We pulled all the seats out and vacuumed out and shampooed all the carpets from mouse poo and urine, did an oil change, replaced a leaking AN fuel fitting and got rid of the garbage HID system that was in the car. The car has a small oil leak that we suspected might be from the front crank seal so we pulled the rad and timing covers to find no leak but did find a rear timing cover bolt that had backed its way out and was sitting in the covers rubbing against the timing belt! luck find before such a long drive. So we threw in a new belt and water pump and the car was good to go. The day before we left I noticed a vibration in the front end over 60mph so we took it for a quick wash to get the years of grime off then went and got the wheels balanced, guess a couple weights dried out and fell off. The drive down was fairly uneventful, day one had us importing the car across the us/Canada border with no issues and clear skies all the way to billings MT. The stiff, low BC racing coilovers made humps in the road painful at 80mph and the 3" exhaust with only a magnaflow muffler left our ears ringing and throats sore trying to talk over the drone for 800 miles. Day two started the same as the first leaving before sunrise we hit the road and cruised with mild temps and open roads. This was until Alexandria, where the skies greyed and the roads started getting wet. By St Cloud the roads were white and I could barely keep the car on the road, yes we ended up bringing the car down during that massive snow storm Minnesota got in mid April.... We decided to save the car and pull off the road and call a flatbed for the remaining 18 miles to my house. to travel all that way with now issue and have to call it with 18 miles left was a little disheartening but I would rather have the car on a tow truck by my own will than because I put it in the ditch. Now that the car is back in my garage I am fixing the body work, yellowing paint from cheap paint job, dent in roof from the tree that fell on it, deleting the antenna on the roof for a smooth roof line and fixing the tiny amount of rust the car has. The car will be getting wrapped in gloss white again once the work is done.
