    From Saab to Subaru

    Went to a Subaru dealer yesterday teary eyed prepared to buy my last Saab. Walked past a black 2011 WRX loaded with options parked out front. My wife convinced me to take the WRX for a spin. I have never driven a Subaru before, let alone a WRX. I took the car out and opened it up. The Saab is a very refined ride with a smooth power band all the way to redline. The WRX is an absolute terror.

    So I forgot all about Saab and bought the WRX.

    I know absolutely nothing about these cars (I have driven Saabs most of my life). I hope it won't disappoint.
