Good, you see the issue, not that it can't be driven, it just sucks to drive without it.

So, what do you guys think about Mustangs? Mustangs are kinda like GTO's but different. Ford makes Mustangs. Mustangs are named after horses. Wouldn't this thread be kinda neat if there were Mustangs in it?

Ah, but GTO's are also called goats, which are farm animals, just like horses and Mustangs are horses...

Sucks not found . My car has plenty of these torques you speak of, I guess I just know how to use them. Again, I have zero complaints with my wrx..... I knew what I was buying and getting into.

You know what else is on farms? Rabbits. The first GTI was a Rabbit. The GTI is now a Golf, the Golf R is a pretty cool car neh?

But goats are also monaros? What farm can I find a monaro on? Or, for that matter, a small, vicious animal that eats horses? And a pinto is a horse, right?

Why did you, lordgrinz, sell your GTO if it was so very good?

And did u drive the WRX before you bought it???

Can you also admit that you get more thumbs up from the lads and knowing looks from the ladies in your Rex than you ever did in your crappy GTO.

Also, GM interiors are so bad they actually make Scoobies ones' look good.

The only people who notice WRXs or STIs (in a positive way) are teenage boys.

Agreed. Subaru is not the brand if your looking to impress the ladies.
Try anything German for better luck with that.

Its almost as bad as sitting at a gas station being beeped at and hear kids in craptastic fartcan-mobiles, with their hats turned sideways, screaming "Awesome WRX dude!" then revving their engines. I don't remember any of this Fanboy crap with any other car, entering the world of Subaru is more of a pain then its worth. Which is exactly why I loved the GTO, fly under the radar, and who cares what anyone else thinks.
Apparently, you do.

I wouldn't mind seeing a 2-door RWD MKZ based on the new Mustang, but it'll still be too heavy so nevermind.

I heard the new Mustang GT was going to be sub 3000 lbs with a copious amount of carbon composites used in the leaf spring suspension and carburator intake plenums.
