We had such a blast down at WBM this year, hanging out with the other 4000~ Subaru enthusiasts (minus the sunburns of course). So of course we’re looking for your feedback on this year’s WBM; what went well, what should be improved? There’s two sections to the survey; one for the cruise and one for WBM itself, so if you didn’t participate in the cruise just skip over that section.
Essex has moved the parade to June 1st due to weather, this is beyond our control and we apologize for the short notice.
Want to honor our service men and women while showing off your subaru? Join us as we celebrate Memorial Day in the Essex Junction Memorial Day Parade.
We will be meeting at the big lots parking lot: 8:00 am. At about 8:30 or so we will travel to the champlain valley expo to get lined up in the parade grounds. Getting breakfast before hand is hightly suggested.
NOTE it is important to be on time because they start setting road blocks up at 5 corners and other routes into Essex at 9am.
All subaru’s are welcome. Additional info like what division we will be in will TBA. Parade is rain or shine!
So my clutch fork pivot snapped recently, during the busiest I’ve been in the last year. Normally I’d do car work myself, but with half of an Impreza in the garage, and with re-wiring the entire house with grounded wire, I’ve been kinda swamped and I was not thrilled about learning how to drop a transmission in my garage. It’s a big job but I caved in and decided to take it to a shop.
I called around town for some quotes, Twisted wanted almost two times as much as Six Star, so the choice was clear. I brought my car up to Six Star Motors on Thursday (I gave them very little notice, but they were cool with it) and within a day or so they had already looked at the car and ordered parts. They did a few extra things for me too and checked the condition of other components that were going to be accessible while the transmission was out. I got my car back just yesterday, so it was about a week and that was with me calling them up a half hour before I was going to drop the car off.
All in all, I’d give them a 5/5. Their turnaround time was about par with my expectations, but Charlie and Tim are real down-to-earth, no-bullshit guys. Their prices were REALLY reasonable and they stuck to their original verbal quote, which was cool. If I’m ever in a pinch for time, I’ll be going to these guys again without hesitation.
