Post Subaru trivia question

Why did Subaru choose "22b" to name their famous limited production wide-body car?

Also, what does the 22b celebrate?

Tom

22b is the hexidecimal equivalent of "555". You know it if you're up on your subie trivia .

Gary, you didn't answer his 2nd quesion though

It celebrates Subaru's winning of the manufacturer's championship in FIA WRC competition 3 years in a row ('95, '96, '97)

Gary is correct for the first question! Good job! I thought I'd have everyone stumped on that one.

How bout the second one?

hehe...shows what a little reading can do I think my first answer makes sense though. The 22B released in 1998, the year after 3 years of dominating the WRC

SUBARU is also thw word for the Pleiades constellation.

It's also representative of the smaller companies in FHI, the five + 1 stars or something like that.
