Okay so I have to put this out there. At this point I am still fairly new to the site and am always up to get to know more about everyone and their take / opinions on their Subaru Impreza WRX / STI community.
This has happened to me more than once but I wanted to get your guy's opinions on the subject; perhaps you may even be one of the people I am talking about:
The other day on the way home from work I saw a hatchback white WRX with gold aftermarket wheels. It was obvious that he had put a little more than just money into his car; he had pride in it as well. I fall into the same category; sure my car is not the fastest nor the best looking one out there, but I put what I want into my own car as well, including pride and joy. This was obvious to him as well, for when he passed me he looked over to me through his rolled down windows and gave me the universal head nod and smile in approval of my car, just as I had done for his.
I (personally) feel like the WRX / STI community is very tightly knit, unlike (what seems) the other communities are not. Like I said, this is not the first time it has happened; in fact it happens quite often, and it has been a pleasant encounter each time.
I just wanted to get all of your opinions on this subject? Has this happened to you? Did you ever have a negative encounter? Stories welcome...
