Default Never thought the day would come, LGT is gone

Well the original plan was to find another Subie, but I have always wanted one of these and I'm having a mid-life crisis at 25.

Plain and simply, sex on wheels.


I never thought I would have such a hard time giving up a car for a new one, but I was about to cry handing over the keys to my baby. I LOVE the G, but
the LGT will always be my favorite, just the best all around car there is. I'll be somewhat sorry when the white stuff hits, and I've lost a ton of utility.
So far I've found that the LGT had the edge in acceleration, but the handling and braking with the new one is so so much better. Plus this is more "upscale".

Good thing is me & the wife still have the Forester, and I'd like to maybe pick up a beater Impreza at some point, so I'll still be part of the community. I really hope Subaru comes out with something that really interests me in a couple years.

What is that? Sorry if that sounds ignorant, but I can't quite figure it out.

I was thinking Infiniti something-or-other. Very nice looking car. Kind of looks like a 370Z/GTR hybrid.

Not much luck with mine. Best looker right now is some dude in L.A. from the LGT forums, but I doubt that will work out. I'm re-posting it tonight on Craigslist and Alaskaslist to bump it to the top again. Maybe that'll help.

10-4 on the PM.

That whole red car thing is just a myth anyway, right? I've yet to be pulled over for anything. It'd be all kinds of ironic if I was stopped in Wasilla....lol

Beautiful car. I am sure you are going to enjoy it a lot....at least until the snow flies. My family has been very pleased with our Infinity. The brand has high refinement and plenty of value built in.

That would have been me. You live up Knik too?
I think I've probably seen you a few times, if I'm thinking of the right color.

Yeah, it has some really neat features that I like. Simple things like memory power seats, auto up&down windows, etc really make a difference.

I'm betting I can go half as fast as I did in my LGT and get twice the attention. I think I'll be alright still
