    Amazing story of STi vs. falling trees

    This is a must read. Found it this morning. The guy is seriously lucky to be alive and props to the Subaru for holding up!

    Pretty amazing. A couple of feet more and the outcome would have been tragic.

    Wow, that's not too far away from me. The weather has been totally crazy around here the last couple weeks. We're used to lots of rain, but it has been pouring a lot more than usual. There was a very big windstorm last weekend that downed lots of trees where this guy was. Its a pretty incredible story, I'm glad everyone walked away.

    Absolutely. Like the "My Subaru saved my life" commercial where the guy takes the STi knob from his totaled Legacy.

    Holy ****.



    That'll buff right out.

    Oh, and I wouldn't really say the Subaru saved his life. I'd say he's very ****ing lucky.

    I say that guy was pretty lucky, but we'll all be far luckier if we get to gaze upon Bo's luscious moobs at CF11.
