    Why do you assume that i didn't read it all? Why do you assume my blood pressure is high? Just because i had a response doesen't mean it was negative. Too many people in this world seem to take everything as a personal attack on them and get very defensive when there's nothing to be defensive about. My reply had no bold or exclemation points nor even nasty comments. It was just a reply. If I'm pissed about something I will express it appropriately. Did your blood pressure go up when you read it?

    I am a big sucker for 4-Cylinder/Turbo/AWD in one package. Or 8 cylinders and tire-smoking drop-clutch launches in a ponycar.

    Damn... I wish I had enough money to pick up a new Cobra and my stable would be complete. :-)
    Too bad there isnt many true import enthusiasts here... Fan of the WRX before it was even in the US.
    In time people will see who you truly are.

    How can there be when they were sending us junk compared to what they sold in other markets. There's still a lot of American pride out there too.

    I have been an Mitsubishi Evolution enthusiast for a long time now. Ever since i saw Jackie Chan's "Who am I" i have wanted one.
    It got to the point that i was going to import one here, until my engine blew on my eclipse and i needed a new car =(

    No, factory original (remember, 25k miles...and always garaged). It was the Turtle Wax show car. If you can find one of the green cans with the red car on the front (late 80's, early 90's), that's my car. They hauled it to shows and whatnot.

    Oh, and I'm a bandwagoneer I guess I really have no interest in any other subaru

    Cool Do I get a sticker?

    From first to most recent, here are the cars I attribute to myself. I have used a few others, but they were primarily my wifes mode of transport so I left them off.
    You will note that my recent ride pre-WRX is a Subaru. Its longevity and overall quality confirmed my decision on the Rex.

    1972 Datsun 510 (a pretty fun car for what it was.. pre smog)
    1978 Fiat 128 Rallye ( rally stripes, bright yellow...)
    1991 Nissan Sentra (the pre-children car that had to go..too small a back seat
    1995 Dodge Caravan (a guy creamed this on on a trip to Vegas)
    1964 Mercury Comet Caliente (too bad for no storage space, she had to go)
    1987 Chevy Cavalier (blew a head gasket during commute)
    1997 Subaru Legacy Brighton (ran like a champ but no fun factor)

    Now my O2 blue Rex wagon!

    In chronological order:

    '63 Sunbeam Alpine
    '69 Alfa Romeo Spyder Jr. (1300cc)
    '70 Triumph GT-6+
    '72 Dodge Challenger - 318
    '76 MGB
    '87 Fiero GT

    '00 Toyota Celica GT-S
    '01 Suzuki SV650S
    '01 Aprilia Falco SL1000
    '02 Subaru WRX Sedan

    I can remember passing the local Dodge Dealer in my Sunbeam in about '68 and sneering at the first Subarus off the boat - the Subaru 360. Truly a pathetic POS of an automobile if there ever was one. Suicide doors, about 9" wheels with a comical bow-legged camber, wondered if they even could achieve 70mph with a tailwind. 16hp, woohoo !
