my ladies' five year old asks me if the hole in the hood of the silver car is why its so fast. I'm kinda dense so I start explanining intercoolers to him.

I see him a week later and he starts explaining back to me how intercoolers work and how they make the air cooler so it burns better!!!

that's a lot better than some 40 year olds I work with

...Or my girlfriend hahaha. I tried teaching her stick (not on my subaru) once and I was explaining how everything worked so she would have a better idea on what to to. She got mad and told me to just tell her what to do...every step...every shift....If you knew how it worked you would know what to do!!!

Well it isn't as funny now that I read it back but eff it, I already typed it out.
I thought it was pretty funny. When I was picturing it I didn't read closely and didn't realize there was a third person until "Bold words Ron." and I just pictured someone buckling up and grabbing the 'oh ****' handle while saying it,

So I have this habit, if I'm in third gear approaching a turn I have to make, I tend to double-clutch when I downshift just because it makes me smile and turns heads. Not revving too high, just a little blip.

SO.

On Long Beach Island (Barnegat Light), turning off of the bayside road onto a cross street to get to the main road. Double clutch and roll down the street. Two kids on bikes (1 probably around 17-18, the other around 12) are riding along the side and turn to watch me pass.

They catch up whenever I get to the stop sign, waiting to turn left. As they roll by, the older one eyef*cks the ***** out of my car, wasn't even trying to be subtle about it and lets out a nice "MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM". Seriously, like "I just tasted the best food of my life while someone simultaneously fondled my genitals" type mmmm.

I knew he liked it (no homo) so I blipped the throttle a little, he gets this huge smile and just goes "WOOOH!"

At this point I'm laughing as I pull out into the road and quickly accelerate up to speed, last thing I heard from him was a nice "DAAAAAAAAAAAYUUUUUUuuummm"

(lowercase U's and M's to emphasize doppler effect)

Made my day.

Today, coming out of chic fil a, a bunch of kids in a golf cart were pulled up next to my Sti and just staring. Not taking pics or anything, just staring. So I walked over there and was about to say hi or something, they look my way, and floor the golf cart away around the other side of the building....

Got 2 very different reactions within a few hours lately.

Last night around midnight I was driving through downtown Rochester, NY. I'm sitting at a red light in front of a corner bar. As I wait for the green, I hear a guy start freaking out about my STI to the 10 other people on the sidewalk. "Wow. Look at that. That car is beautiful. Do you know what that is? That's a WRX STI! SOOO BADA$$! That's a $40,000 car right there." The light turned green and I was on my way with a huge smile.

Flash forward to 9am this morning. Sitting at an intersection waiting for oncoming traffic to go by so I can turn left. Last car to go by is a piece of crap beater with a couple 20 something rednecks inside. They flipped me off and screamed a word that rhymes with maggot.

They should talk to that dude from the bar last night. He knows whats up.

My dad was driving on Daytona beach. We got to a point where there was a sign that read "DEEP SAND: 4X4 ONLY" A lifeguard stopped us about 2 feet after the sign telling us to get off the beach, 2WD isn't allowed passed this sign. My dad said, "No thanks, we're AWD". She gave us a face and let us continue. We passed 4WD Ford Explorers getting stuck and my Subie just kept going.

You can see me in the passenger seat when I was like 14. lol

As I was reading this, I thought, that sounds like Peachtree City... then I looked and saw Tyrone, GA. I'm from Newnan. We should have a date set soon for scca rallycross in the area if you are interested. The site we will be using for now is in warm springs. Hit me up if you think you might want to join in on fun so I can keep you updated.

So I decelerated from 32mph to 25mph. Then, I gave him a big thumbs down out of the window. He might not have liked that, but I continued on as the road goes to a 35mph zone, still doing 25mph.
Next, the road kind of merges with another road, so I changed to the left lane, so did he, still right up on my ass, still doing 25mph. I gingerly accelerated to the 35mph speed limit hoping he would leave me alone, but nope. I probably took about 10 seconds to get from 25-35mph, but he was still on my ass. The cool story ends about a mile later, with him going to the right lane, speeding up a bit about 2 car lengths ahead of me, then turning into an apartment complex to the right.

I would have called the police while he was on my ass, mainly because I like to **** people who drive like asshats, but my phone was dead. I also considered slamming on the brakes or pulling over to talk with the nice fellow, but again, no phone, and I didn't even have my knife on me.

And when he passed me, I didn't get a good look at the guy, but I could have sworn I saw grey hair. Like a lot of grey hair, but I wouldn't think a guy in his 50's would be driving such a ****box, or driving it like such a douche.
I have a similar story I guess but I wasn't antagonizing anyone, just VW douchebags being douchebags.

It seems VW drivers hate it when I pass them in the 95 north from Vegas. I'm going only 10 over at 80 during a 45 minute drive to work so I end up passing some people but most drive around that speed since the highway patrol doesn't pull people over until they are going a bit faster than that. I passed a VW Jetta and switched lanes back to the right lane and he decides to speed up and run his brights on me and keeps with me all the remaining way to work. I can't see **** because hes got those ridiculous douchehids on his car but i was only about 5 miles left before I got to work. Turns out he works at the same base (am a military contractor) and tell the gate guard to tell the guy he should turn off his brights when tailgating. It looked like he did. He knew to turn off his brights when approaching the gate though....

The next day a different Jetta, since he didn't have douchehids, was passed and he was going under the limit. He immediately speeds up and had his brights on this whole time again. This time i'm pissed so I just accelerate to try to get some distance and hes trying to match my speed. I don't want to "race", or whatever hes doing, or go 20 over or anything especially since its so dark out and i'm blinded by some asshat so I go back to my normal speed and just deal with it. Eventually he goes back to his under the speedlimit speed and goes away.

I work at night and its open desert so its pitch black out. Tailgating people 5 feet from the bumper with brights on is a good way to get someone killed. Saw an EVO 10 absolutely destroyed coming from work in a way that someone had to of died, it happens often on this stretch of road. Also cops hide in the middle ditches where its impossible to see them so trying to escape a douche is a guarantee for a ticket especially if it looks like i'm racing him.

Had another VW douche say he thinks Subarus suck because of the "interior". Well guess what? I don't buy a car for a hipster reason like to match my iAccessories so I dont give a ****. I purposely bought a base WRX because I don't need anything more than what came in a 90s car other than bluetooth and I didn't want some fwd slow electrical nightmare like a Golf or a Jetta.

I used to like VWs and was going to buy a Golf R originally but the people who drive them seem to be the kings of douchebags.

I think it's funny when people who don't own Subaru's call them "Subies"
I own one and I don't even call it that :P
I just call it a Subaru, or a WRX, or an Impreza.

Y'all have horrid luck with VW's, I have that horrid luck with cobalt ss'. Have had my bigeye about 2 months, it's all stock motor suspension exhaust everything and it already has several under it's belt. But I refuse to break about 80mph. Speed limit around here is 60, so a quick little jump is usually enough to put em down.

Dealer-Why is you radiator so low? (FMIC)
Me-Its a front mount intercooler
Dealer-Is that an aftermarket part?
Me-Is it on any of you other subarus?
Dealer- Says "No" confusingly then proceeds to ask "So it is aftermarket?"
Me- There ya go buddy, you figured it out
Dealer- We're going to have to void your warranty because of that.
Me- Ummmmmmmm ok..

My car 02 wrx with 160k miles.

My cousin came to visit me from Houston over the 4th of July weekend, he drives an '08 WRX. One evening, we took his car to pick up some $5 pizzas from Little Ceaser's, and when we were leaving a dike chick in a prelude tells him "nice car!". He thanked her, and we went on our way. Last week when I was driving to work (in my bugeye), I glanced over to my right at a stoplight, and it was the same dike chick in the prelude, but this time telling me "nice car!". I thanked her then drove away. Dike chick must like Subarus, haha.
