You can take the girl out of Oregon, but can you take the Subaru, also?

Have bumper stickers, will travel...

95k and counting...
We're shipping Dad's car from Oregon all the way to Illinois. Silly idea, but we want to give it a try.   On this December day on the Oregon coast it just happens to be sunny and mild.  Here in Oak Park, well, you guessed it...grey, cold, dark, wet, lack of visible greenery, rough streets, siren in the distance, alas.  I guess if you can take an eighteen year old girl away from Oregon, never to return, you can just as easily transport Dad's beloved 1994 Subaru Loyale.  It's all a matter of wear and tear.   The creaks in my joints, the wrinkles, worry lines, and stress headaches that I endure. What sort of physical drama will be bestowed upon our car?  But I digress, this is a time for the lilt of the heart that comes only when one is about to embark upon ownership of a new car! In this case, a car loaded with memories, love, and a rather solid engine.  So....bring it on, and thank you Scott for the safe delivery on the other end!
