Waiting frustration level is really starting to show.  I am at this stand-still it seems like.  I mean, i know things are still moving forward, everyday i'm getting closer to the Bio-Diesel Subaru being a reality, but with nothing tangible in front of me at the moment, it feels like i'm just standing here waiting for it to appear.  There are a lot of people out there right now talking to each other about great ideas about cars, economy, jobs, fuel, and other people are talking about this blog, the need for change, what can be done with bio-fuels, who's creating new options, and there are other people out there trying to bring it all together, to bring all this energy, all these people together to create the change.  The world needs a shift and i am glad to be a part of the solution.  I am thankful to have the opportunity to help my community, my Country and this World.  I am happy to be able to help, even if just a tiny bit, to create a cleaner, better planet for my daughter and son to raise their families in, to travel with their friends around, to look back from space and see, to call Home.

But, like i said, i have been stuck in this limbo of needing funds, so it's time to get more creative.  I have to do more than just talk to people, i need to come up with something that grabs attention, gets my message across LOUD AND CLEAR.  I have been thinking of a possible series on YouTube, and also some more direct advertising options like the Newspaper, online ads, and search out some more investment groups like the Southern Oregon Angel Investors.  I'm going to get the money, i'm going to finish this car soon.  Before the end of August is still my deadline, i have no desire to not make that deadline.  I'm going to finish this car!

I really want to say thanks to Noell for talking to businesses and looking for potential sponsorship for this project.  There is no other motivation for him to help me other than he believes in what i'm doing, and he wants to see this thing come to life dang near as much as i do.  Hopefully between the two of us we will pick up the monetary results we need and start getting some videos of the build up for people to follow.  Thanks for checkin' in, take care!

I'm going in to Napa today to see if they want to put their blue and gold on the bio-diesel Subaru.  I really like the Napa store that i use here in Grants Pass, they have always been able to get the parts i need when i have trouble finding odd-ball parts on the vehicles i like to play with.  They are over on 7th street if you ever need some help.

I was at their tool sale last week and they had the big parts truck and trailer out front, they had a Custom Napa Auto Parts Chopper out there, it was cool . Great deals on parts, and they had tons of advertising going on, but all i could see was my Subaru sitting out front.  The blue and gold just flooded my brain.  I was instantly picturing how i could use the Napa logo and mix it with the Subaru stars on the side of the car.  The guys down there are very helpful, and they seem to all have some interest in motorsports, so working with a business that's locally owned, run by a good group of people, into playing with their vehicles and hopefully very into what i'm trying to do with bio-diesel, and create a better grade of fuel to motivate people to buy bio instead of the oil-company alternatives.

The Subaru will be a great advertising vehicle for them, because it's local, because it'll be around town, because it'll be at every local event in the Pacific Northwest.  Also, when the build starts, all the locals who know the car can follow the build online, or stop-by and check it out in person, they get great internet advertising, it's going to be a great partnership and i really look forward to getting this project movin!
