Didn't know XT's were so fun...

I bought my XT because 1) it's a good idea to have an extra mode of reliable transportation 2) because I didn't want to see a pristine Subaru fall into unappreciative hands and 3) it's the coolest looking 80's Subaru IMO...
But I didn't know they were this much fun to drive!!! No it's not a Vette-killer, but it's still peppy, and the handling is superb! Plus it really feels like a sports car, even though some would argue it's far from it...
Then there's the interior...
Anyway, I felt like commenting on it, and I'm glad my entrance into the Older Generation is so pleasurable... :bday:

Anyhow, there's lots o' little things you could do if you were after making it zip faster along.
And as for the XT being an awesome car, it's aerodynamic, low, and has it's weight distributed pretty well. My car is a light car at around 2350 pounds, but it's not flat and aerodynamic, now is it?

In the snow they are !
I recall one snowy day, comming across a Chevy Corvette crabbing down the road, riding the crown on the middle of the road so he wouldn't go in the ditch.
I tell you, it was _no problem_ driving around him with my 4wd Turbo XT equipped with new Cooper Wintermaster snow tires !
Bye bye little 'Vette !!

But still, I guess I'm one of those people who doesn't have to have gobs of power to enjoy driving a car. Even though it was pouring rain last night, I just put it in 4WD and sped on home. I took the long way home too...
