I'm a mountain boy but my job has brought me to central California.... and there's so little interest in what a car truly is it makes me sad.
I'm tired of seeing riced out cars and blacked out bimmers/chargers.
I do enjoy heading up to the hills and while waiting to get on a ski lift a bunch of Scoobasauras WReX owners standing around sharing stories of ludicrous things.
When in doubt, frag out.
I don't know what it is but I've had several guys in Diesel pickups trying to race me..
There are also a few of those fools around here, that want to race a lifted Cummins, Power Stroke, or Duramax on city roads...one or two with really loud VTA BOVs
Though, I have to admit, I have seen a few at the drag strip that are seriously quick.

Nothing I have is worth mentioning. I've gotten the, "Nice Subie." A GTO once tried to race me...through Shalimar...where there lots of cops just waiting. Dumb.
Definitely a wide cross section of people that take interest in the WRX. From old school Subie enthusiasts, to stancerz, to outdoor people, on and on. Definitely surprised me.
Pulled into Dairy Queen last night on my way home and 2 kids were in the general area I would guess they were around 10 or so both on bikes. One of them said...woh nice car! is that a wrx. I said no its the STI and he said wow even better. I was trying not to laugh b/c it was funny so I go into DQ and get my M&M Blizzard and come back out and they are both waiting by the car and I heard the one that ask me what it was before say " I just want to see him leave then we will go" I just thought it was funny that they hung around until I cam back out.

Should have seen the faces of everyone walking out of the always crowded movie theater in my town when I cruise by with catless open downpipe. loool
On a fun side note, aftermarket alarms on ricers always go off when I drive by.... I guess that Boxer engine has some hardcore bass..
When in doubt, frag out.
I shoved some fishing poles in mine for the first time today and hit the lake. Definitely turned some heads when I pulled into the parking lot, popped the hatch and grabbed my gear with the wifey and started fishing. Got a lot of nice comments and caught a few fish so it was good day!
On topic- I love how Subaru appeals to such a large diverse crowd. I think more-or-less there is really something for everyone when it comes to this brand.
No lol just driving by, I ran that for a day or two. It's no longer loud and obnoxious.
