btw, you all know that even though this is true, i could care less if this is your first subaru or not, this is just a stab at i-club old school superiorist mentality.

Not much performance to be had out of the SVX either. So what bandwagon? You could say that about any car out there if you wanted too. Nobody is born with a suby. Every kid in the world is running around with a Mustang now and I had 3 of them over the past 10 years, before most of them could even drive, and I'm not running around calling them bandwagoners.
supercharger, read the whole post before going off raising your blood pressure. hope you didn't lose too many years of your life with anger :rolleyes:

Interesting how many of us have been members of the DSM And 5.0/Stang camps before owning our WRX's. I guess that shows what we hold dear. Performance, sportiness, tossability...

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. :)

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? :confused:

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 :p I really have no interest in any other subaru :rolleyes:

Was that repainted? It looks beautiful. Mine was a bit faded. The bumpers looked like they were fresh off of Barbie's car! :D I tried Meguiar's 3-step, but it brought out the primer...the paint was too far gone.

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! :D

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
'94 Honda Civic del Sol - Si
'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 !
