Figured I'd give a quick heads up to those around the Capital District... if you see a black Baja Sport with Mudrat bumpers on it, that's me. Hope to see some of y'all out there!

Hey Niskayuna! I'm about to join the Baja Brigade (have wanted one for about 10 years). Just signed all the papers today on a 2005 Baja Turbo - Black. Wanted a 5 spd, but could only find an automatic. I'm about 1 hour west of Albany, so will be watching out for you when I'm in Capitaland. Picking up the car next Saturday....can't wait to get on the road with it!!!

You've got to be out near Fonda then, I'm guessing.

Congrat's on the new Baja! I wanted a turbo, too, but the price was just right on my NA.

I can't seem to run across another Baja when I'm driving mine... there's one guy who takes Route 146 every day, just outside my house. Whenever I see him, I'm driving the company car, so blaring the horn and waving just makes me look like a freak :lol:. I'll keep an eye out for you 8) .

I somehow managed to screw up my login :roll: , so this is the new one. It will also keep logins consistent across the Subie boards.

I'm up just north of Fonda in the Glove Cities. There are a bevy of Bajas up here. There is a red and silver one belonging to a woman that works at Hannaford in Gloversville. I've seen two different NA silver ones on the arterial, but neither driver returned the wave. I was amazed that in two small cities there were so many!

There's also a very nice, clean NA silver 2006 for sale at John Miller Motorcars in Johnstown. It only has 50K miles, but they want the princely sum of $18k for it. Yikes! But seeing that one all the time as I went by lit the fire under me again to buy one.

Loving it so far, but the baja's already earned the nickname of Mr. Thirsty! All that expensive premium gas and 16 mpg in the city makes it a very expensive new toy! Makes me think that the NA may have been the smart choice!

See you around!

I'm in Amsterdam, NY and work in Albany. I do take 146 for a short bit: from 20 to the 890 entrance. I don't recall seeing a black Baja with the mudrat bumpers. Might have seen the red one. There is/was a silver one whose driver went to the same chiropractor as do I, but I think she's sold that one.

Mine's a Blue 2005 NA with a 'scoobytruck' sticker in the back window!
