    Talking New owner - funny story :)

    I'm picking up my 2005 Impreza WRX Wagon this afternoon from a local dealership. It would have been a car buying process just like any other except that two days ago when I went for a test drive something totally funny happened.

    I took a brand spanking new black 2005 WRX Wagon for a spin. It had a total 1.8 miles on the meter! Everything was still wrapped in plastic foil and it had the protective stuff all over the exterior. So I drove it around as carefully as possible making sure I don't abuse it since I wasn't sure if this particular car wouldn't be mine in few days.

    As I was almost done with the ride I was about to pull into the dealer parking lot when to my surprise I got pulled over by a cop! A storm of thoughts ran through my mind - was it speed, turn signals, lights? No, none of the above. It turned out the dealer dude forgot to put the temporary licence plate on the car and the cop stopped us to remind him to put it on.

    So, as a conclusion, in the past 5 years of driving a beetle I got nailed once for speed on my home street. That's 1 time in 5 years!!! I get behind a wheel of a WRX and get pulled over in 5 minutes! That's 1 time in 5 minutes. Seems like a great beginning

    Hahaha, everyone loves WRX's.

    Be careful out there, cops look for anything to pull people over.
