    Knowing Bill, I think he'd prefer the lighter weight

    ok, real talk. am i the only Subaru head that doesn't drool for a 22-B? love the wheels, love the chassis. mixed feelings on the front, limited comforts, and 2 doors. that said, the specs on it are great. and the investment value is unbeatable. which are the only 2 reasons one would be on my radar. so, yup. drives a Gc8, doesn't wish for a 22-B. hmph.

    Personally - I would just love to drive it for a couple weeks (I'm retired).
    Very nice ride. I get 2017 WRX next month.

    I think it is totally drool worthy in terms of an economy car made to be quite sporty, but it is just that. Arguably the most desirable Impreza ever but at $100K for an econobox made to look cool that has mostly sat for many years and is now an old car, not even close. It is only worth it as an investment potentially - for historic cars in that price range to actually drive and look at I'd say it is completely outclassed by many other cars.

    I'd rather have a Deltona HF Martini any day and I'd have money left over. Better car, more significant, more historic, cooler.

    Pass.
    After a little while I felt a little better, but very little. I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun. I put them on and went out of the room. Fairwell, My Lovely

    If we're talking cars from the late '90s, maybe a Ferrari 355, or a 911 GT3, with a lot to spare for parts and a trailer.

    Agreed.

    I never understood why people buy fun cars to sit in a garage to be stared at.

    Real enthusiasts take them out for a spin here and there and hopefully often enough.

    I can totally relate to those who would rather stow this beauty away. It really pains them to see such a stunning and flawless speed machine to even be used scarcely. However, I do not disagree that a powerful machine was produced just for that very purpose indeed and to see it being abandoned most of the days is simply a waste of resources.

    The 355 is one of my favorite cars ever. Just love the looks so much. Saw one in Aspen last summer, and it still looks exotic even though it's 20 years old.

    Aspen in the summer is awesome (or used to be at least). I've done a few trips back into Maroon Bells - lovely place.

    Yeah, it's incredible. I can't afford to do it like the locals, but just staying on the cheap and hiking around is great.

    Its a super nice car but for the price its not worth it at'll. You can buy far better cars for less. My dad once had a 1967 Shelby Gt-500 Mustang which he sold when I was born. He loved the piss out of that car and really didn't want to sell it but wanted to afford things for me. Well some 27 years go by and the car shows up that he used to own. Still in great shape and ran great. I asked my dad if he would buy it back to which he replied "No". I asked "why wouldn't you want to have that iconic car that you fell in love with?". he replied "there are far better vehicles now for less money that would blow the doors off that car." nostalgic buys aren't worth it unless you're a collector or crazy rich.

    Yeah, technology advances so much. I feel that way about my first WRX already. It was an '09, and I loved that car, but I can't imagine going back to no Bluetooth, no back up camera, tighter doors, so on.
