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!
