WRX would be a cool choice but I wouldn't plan on keeping it. I was contemplating them but then a buddy asked me " how many of them do you see on the road(old ones... like the brat )

Ahem. How many were made and sold in the US? How many old Mustangs were made? There will probably be a difference there as well.

yeah, that's just a stupid thing to say. there are tons of old legacys and other older subarus still on the road. in fact, the dealers even advertise something like 9 out of 10 subarus from the last 10 years are still on the road. this is no so with fords. but i guess they have the right to say whatever they want.

hehe, yeah maybe. But "ugly as sin" is a relative term. Every car is ugly to 'someone'... It has its own asthetic appeal, the interior is sure a hell of a lot phatter than a Mustang...thats for sure. Less hard plastic trees die in the making of a WRX interior than a Mustang

"I hate to go against everyone else, but I say a 2002 GT. I own one myself and love it, I do not really like the WRX and the only one thats really supposed to be fast is the top of the line one which is probably more than a GT. "



That was brilliant! The "top of the line one." He must be thinking about that ultra rare Type-R one.

I still have to pat myself on the back for converting yet another Mustang guy over to Subaru ownership. I get in there all the time and do a search for WRX. But you're right, most of them dont know what the heck STi is, or stands for... But, if you read the whole thread...a "die-hard" Ford guy is trying to tell "ME" about the STi, and that he 'confirmed' its coming to the USA

There is a guy here that used to have a Stang and bought a Rex. I haven't talked to him yet. My buddy knows him. Said its his first import. He does love the WRX though from what Joe said.

After reading about so many other imports, I have to say that the WRX is one of the best...and especially for the price. I was a mustang owner myself previous to this car, and I'll never go back!

I concur,

I still own my 89 Stang and even though it ran 12.95 I still get up in the morning and drive my WRX around with a phat a$$ smile. The WRX is just technologically superior in many many ways. I switched from the dark side the moment the WRX was available. my vin says its # 3025. Heheheheheheheh

I know what you mean about the tech thing. I went on a cruise with my dad. He has an 85 Vette. We were parked next to each other and he asked how many ponies the Rex had. I stated the 227. He then pointed out that he was at 225 from an engine almost 3x the size. There is 17 yrs. tech for you. Still like Vettes though.

I think the Mustang guy was refering to the WRX being the top of the line Impreza. A WRX is a Impreza with the EJ20 engine.(just in case you didn't know)

Uhm, ouch? I figured he didnt know that they made Impreza's anymore..and that there was only the Outback, Forester, and the WRX in the Subaru Line... (there IS an Impreza 2.5RS still, in case you didnt know )

Mustang guys dont know squat..otherwise they wouldnt drive Mustangs. j/k

Thumbs up Petrol

Not ugly...just different. Its definitely not one of those 1,000,000 unit distributed cookie-cutter cars you love so much. You go ahead and stick to your Mustang, so you have 5 or 6 other Mustang buddies to wave to at each stoplight... Also, I personally got sick of Ford sticking the HP level up our (Mustang Owners) asses...I mean, come on...you dont have to slap a supercharger on a V8 to get 390hp...(or whatever the '03 Cobra puts out) Which they finally got around to giving "us" real horsepower, NOW that the F-body program is dead... It would have been kinda cool 14 years ago when Chevy ''started'' whooping the hell out of Mustangs out of the box.

I would rather have true technology over "consumer" limited allowance anyday. But, to each their own.
Beautiful... couldn't of said it any better
