I usually stick to my older subies, but I have to say that I just totally love the new ones too. After months of wanting to, I finally managed to get down to the dealership tonight to get some info and a test drive.

I drove a 2004 Impreza 2.5 TS wagon in San Remo Red. It was gorgeous! All the fun stuff, cd, air, loads of power acc., roof rack. The only thing I didn't love was the wheelcovers... I'd much rather have the WRX wheels.

I drove the car maybe 6 miles and up to 70mph. It had loads of pep and was just a blast to drive, super quiet and smooth..... deff not the 'roo of old. It was cool to that I talked to a salesman who has sold Subies since '85. He loved my '83 Wagon and we got to talking... he knew the saleswoman who sold one of my '84's brand new!

I didn't get up the nerve to ask him if I could test drive one of the WRX STi's they have in stock. Maybe I'll go back and try to sweet talk him into that one :D I so want a new Subie, but I'll have to stick to my older 'roo's for the time being. Oh well... I can dream can't I! I'm considering sleeping with the '04 Impreza brochure I got under my pillow in hopes that the Subie fairy will bring me an STi :-p There is a subie fairy isn't there?......

A new car is not in our short term plans, so I am dreaming about an '06 outback turbo 2.5 or a 3.0. My wife wants a minivan. If they introduce the seven passenger Subaru that may be an option.

Yesterday, I was killing time with a friend of mine. I really was looking for a tuner for my guitar, but on the way we passed a Mazda dealership with a few new RX-8's out front. From there we hatched our plan. He drives a Bimmer, in decent shape. If we both dressed like urbanite freaks, and drove up in that, we could most definately talk the dealer into a test drive :D We haven't done this yet, but I think I'll try and talk him into going down to the local Scoob dealership, which happens to have a couple of 04 STi's...You can guess the rest :D
