But then there is a certain perception attached to anyone driving a Caddy. You have to factor that in.
Meanwhile I showed up at paintball this morning in my Legacy and all day folks & fellow employees were still talking about last weekend when I brought my STi.
Most common comment of the day: "The hood scoop was huge, and it came with the car stock!"
BTW, thus far the only vehicles to succesfully climb the very steep and rocky 'mountain' unpaved path to access the field where I play (normally acessed on foot, horseback or via a 4 wheeler) have been Jeeps (Cherokee & Wrangler), a Nissan 4x4 pickup, a Hummer (aka H1), a '04 Forester 2.5 AWD, my '93 Legacy AWD 4EAT and an '89 Caddilac Seville V8 (three times!) on street tires.
The Caddy and the Forestor are owned by a gonzo 17 yr. old who knows the exact and perfect line to take in order to get up & down the mountain.
It seems Caddy just might not be as soft as folks figured.
