My Vehicle: 2013 Crosstrek, Tangerine
Default Big Sky tangerine!

So two weeks ago I was happily driving the Corolla I'd bought new back in 2005 ... when the engine blew. Can't complain too much, since I'd put 284,000 miles on the thing, but suddenly I was in panic mode to find a new car.

I didn't start off thinking about a Subaru, but here in western Montana a lot of people consider Subies THE car to drive, so I stopped at the dealership on a whim. I'd never even heard of a Crosstrek at that point, but the salesman steered me right over to one, put me in the driver's seat, and pointed me at high speed toward a twisty, rutted dirt road. Five minutes later, I was totally hooked.

Found the one I wanted a couple days later, and soon it was mine! And of course, a few minutes after taking possession I headed off the pavement again:



And then on an old logging road up into the mountains, where the crosstrek was definitely happiest:



And yeah, I had to get a tangerine one ... for me it was no contest. It's an amazing color for an amazing car!

Thanks, folks. I'll definitely keep the photography going.

As for mods, there are a couple long-term things I wouldn't mind doing, but the primary short-term mod will be to cover the car with lots and lots of road dust. ;D

Sounds like a great mod you have in mind.

The orange/blue contrast looks excellent!

I know I should probably stop saying this, but I just can't get over how great that color is.
