Default NASIOC Mentioned on Top Gear America!


Well it was bound to happen sooner or later... NASIOC was mentioned on National Television.

Tanner Faust mentioned the site during their review of the 2011 STI.

Quote from the Show:
"One of the largest message boards in the world is the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club, over 200,000 members blow away on the internet."

We're just shy of 300,000 members, but I'll take it!

So thanks to Tanner and Top Gear America for the name drop on TV!

Clarkson dislikes Subaru's... it's pretty evident in every review he's ever done of the STIs over the years. And honestly if he were to mention a Subaru site, he would have more likely mentioned ScoobyNet.

Cool beans on NASIOC getting a shout out on the show.

Anyone know how many members are part of other big car enthusiast forums? I've never really been on any others besides RS25 (very small compared to NASIOC) and I guess Zilvia, but I've never posted there - only looked at pictures.
