Angry arrr WRX sightings

Ok i've been seeing some wrx's on the freeway and getting right next to them and try to wave, peace, thumbs up, or somehow get their attention and nothing!! these fools just look straight and don't care even when i'm right in front of them then go to their side to say hi. that kinda pisses me off now before i remember impreza owners always give me a sign to say hi or something, but now... no love

so next time i see a wrx or another scoobie w/ no love.. you'll get this from me

I always give props to all Subaru owners. Sometimes even the Soccer moms that drive the wagons

It seems like only people from the i-club say hi. But then again there are a lot of other car enthusiasts out there also who are not aware of this club.

Good lookin out....and drive safe.

Yeah, it seems to me that whenever you see a GC8, they know exactly what they're driving. I've never had a GC8 owner look at me like i was crazy when i waved to them. But about 50% of the WRXs i see just blow me off. But oh well, I'll just keep waving to them and hope i come across other i-clubbers.

Yea us GC8's are cooler that those WRX people but anyways, yea i think most of these newbies know nothing abt the club or any for that matter. just running along minding their own buisness w/o a care in the world for fellow scoobies but then i used to get waves and thumbs up from a lot of non-clubbers before, but now i guess its just the new crowd getting into scoobies be sure to wave at me if anyone sees me on the road or somehow get my attention.

Hey I used to wave to all GC owners when I first got my WRX and no one ever replied to me. Recently, I have waved to WRX owners and they waved back. So if you see a Silver WRX with the factory BBS wheels and the OEM body kit, that is more than likely my car. I still wish I could get my hands on a GC model. I still envy those with that body style because I think they look good.

Sorry, I am part of the no-waving WRX club. It is nothing personal -- I have to keep my eyes on the road in front of me since I like to drive as fast as reasonably possible. I don't even change the radio channel during spirited driving.

My wife and I were out in Calistoga yesterday morning getting massages, and we ran across 4 WRXs. One yellow, parked. One Silver driven by an older white guy waved. My wife and I waved back of course. The other two passed by on the other side of the freeway, one blue sedan in Vallejo on Fairgrounds, and one Silver wagon in Calistoga.

Don't go to Indian Springs...

Have a Nice Day? Southland people.

I saw three WRX's this morning, two silver, the other blue. Do you think they waved or flashed brights, well, one did. Did I? Yes. It's very sad to say, but the WRX is the new Civic in terms of popularity in the Gen-X crowd. Not all of them are that way, but a lot of them are. There are a lot of people down here that have them, and a lot of them don't wave to a fellow Suby owner. It's the trend, man, get used to it. <sigh>

Anyone who flashes or waves to me gets a response. GC8 owners usually are the most friendliest in my experience.

All this love from one car owner to the other are very new to me. I used to own a Integra GSR and trust me no love at all, it is either they dog you or try to race you. When I first got the car some guy at the stop light was trying to talk to me at first I was like yeah you weirdo but then I got used to it and, I am loving the love around subie owners. I wave to any impreza around me but I notice WRX's like the back of my hand it just somethign that sparks my interest when I'm driving.

Last Thursday, An older guy, mailman, driving an aprox 92 toyota small pick up truck lowered yellow. Anyway, pulls up along side me on the freeway in trafic, and says, " Is that an Impreza?" I said, yeah. He says, "**** Yeah!" And took off. Weird.
