I turn my nose up to the Subarus that I pass because my FIAT is environmentally friendly.

Funny! I give people the "I run my car on E85" line all the time...though it take diesel to harvest and ship E85, coal power to process the corn and who knows what to make the fertilizer...

As far as gestures of the automotive variety, obviously there are enough D-bags out there in Subys to warrant such exchanges.

I tend to not give a crap. I track my car, so anything on the street is just stupidness anyhow.

Got sick of my WRX drinking fuel, so went to something a little more fuel efficient.

Friend of mine was talking about this the other day. Subarus are getting cheap enough to attract the older honda crowds. I suppose that this is why you start seeing Imprezas with ugly wheels, bad body kits, flat bills and asshats.

That makes sense. But I was driving and I am the one getting flipped off what does that have to do with me as a driver. The guy had to be in go late 20s early 30s. That is a grown man flipping me off for no apparent reason.

I'm 20. 21 in 3 days but I am not taunting others. I have had a Honda s2000 but I don't consider myself a "Honda crowder". I don't have time to flip some one off. It doesn't satisfy me. So it's not the crowd it's people. A person driving a Mazda flips me off doesnt mean he on the "Mazda crowd" it's just erragent people I guess.

I've found that the "ass hats" tend to be guys who drive a particular car because they want the status symbol or flavor of the month-not because of the culture associated with it or because they love the brand. Throwing respect for the vehicle out the window-loading it down with money because the more mods the better. It just so happens that Subarus often times (more frequently as of late) end up in their purchasing and weekend bar ratting paths.
