Help Me Save My Liberty, Please

Postby wozz119 » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:51 am

Hi everyone, my name is Kyle MacMillan

I own a 2003 Subaru Liberty GT Premium, this is my dream car and I love her so.

Unfortunately the engine has blown up. My hypothesis is that the piston has shattered or the head lifted and warped the bore. Dok dok dok. I am unfortunately mentally ill; having been hospitalized on several occasions with depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenic tendencies and childhood PTSD. I have been declared entirely unfit for work, unable to afford much in the way of food and bills let alone a new heart for my Subi. If I had a vehicle there is a workplace who would overlook my conditions and would allow me to create a livelihood once more.

What I'm typing out here is a plea for help in a community which has yielded me so much support prior, I am at the last of my anything and everyone is hounding me for cash I don't have, I've not been eating or improving, only ever deteriorating and as it is I can't really see a way through.

My liberty was realistically all I had to be proud of, the fruits of my labor and the symbol of what I could achieve. It was hope, it was personal freedom. Gone for an hour in that and I couldn't hear my demons any longer. But now they're back and shouting.

I will be entirely appreciative of any support offered. Whether it be a share or kind words. If you have financial advice or otherwise I'm also open to it. I am desperate.

Please, please save my dream.

Finally I beg you, please don't make fun of me or send something harmful. I can't take it like I used too and even seemingly harmless banter may push me off a cliff with no recovery.

I hope members can assist, unfortunately I’m in no position to help at this time.
Your best bet may be to find a 2.0t from an appropriate self serve wreckers or member partout...
You could be back on the road for well under a grand if you eg score a long block w/o accessories from the self serve.

I think all the pick a part joints got killed off over here in WA :( but if you do know of one or any ongoing partouts, please share?
All the wreckers are asking north of 3k for long block minus all sensors and the turbo, the turbo I own is also gone. VF38 with play side to side right into the housing as well as in and out, would be a time bomb more than anything.

Mate I think the best option for you is to leave the liberty in the shed and buy a crap car/get public transport to your workplace until you can save enough money to fix your car.

G'day Kyle, jump on the http://www.perth-wrx.com forum and see if any of the guys over there know somebody who can help you out.
You will never know until you ask around.

I was hoping to so something of the sort and have been actively looking.

However, on review today my psychiatrist has forbade me from driving pending review. My workplace is a delivery service and requires operation of a vehicle. With the overhanging liability of a potential cancellation, I can't even get a cheap crappy to get me through and help me get better. All I have now is the liberty, hopefully fixed it'll provide me enough stability to have the suspension lifted. It's all I can hope to achieve.

Wow. That doesn't sound too flash mate!

Can't help much (I'm a long way from you), but am sending my best wishes.
