Uh... Tribalwrx said he caught the tail end of something on there and that natedog called them and gave them an ear full. I guess it was along the lines of they were saying subaru owners were snooty brats that drive cars their parents bought them. He called in and set them straight about most of us. This was stemming from some incident were someone in a subaru was yelling at a cop?

well, there are 2 ends of the spectrum: the snot nosed kids who wrap themselves around a tree driving like idiots (we know they're out there cause we complain about them too) and those of us who have jobs, businesses, families, lives, etc and prefer to save it for the track. unfortunately, it's the idiots out there that make it worse for the rest of us and give us all bad reps.

true but the business people like to break the law as well as long as it seems safe...its life, we all break the law, even cops do it...is it right? no, is it acceptable?....in the fact that everyone else does it...also, look at all the subarus now, sadly enough, seems like owning a wrx/sti has turned into some kind of fad...well, thats how i feel about it

sure... that is quite true. however, i don't think it's fair that just because we happen to drive cars with a wing or a hoodscoop, that we're automatically grouped in the first category. plenty of people drive other cars and drive worse, but they are not profiled or harasses as a whole like the subies.

Subarus aren't so bad, the crowd that drives civics and integras is much worse in my opinion. There are of course exceptions but it seems more common than not to have a big wing (unless its a hatch) and loud exhaust, not mention driving like an ass. To top it all off they all seem to either poor black or blue smoke out of the exhaust.

Example 1. Guy I work with has a 91 civic hatch back.... runs no exhaust just headers, and slicks on the street. Went to the track and ran a 14 or something like that, thing runs way to rich. Thing gives me a headache if I stand next to it for any length of time while its running. Not sure if its the exhaust fumes or ungodly noise thats doing it.

Not even close. My vote for the worst is the 'loud pipes save lives' crowd. Don't get me wrong, I love unmuffled engines, but I hate it when people try to justify it with some BS safety excuse.

So what exactly happened? What did they say?

And I heard a few posts up that Natedog called in. Nate, can you give us your story. Just interested.
