Default OMG! just saw 04' sti cruise'n PCH!

so i was at my shop arguing with my electrician on the phone. i turn my head and notice the rally blue with the big tail and and shiny tail lights. i freak out and run outside to get a better look! i see nothing but butt. so i freak out even more because i could careless about the back since i'm already famliar with the design. i rudely interrupt the conversation and hang up. so i run to the rex frantically hoping to catch up to the STI. i drive and i drive, and i drive some more. but i don't see any sti's. darn thing slipped right through my fingers!!! i was hurt'n afterwards. i still am hurt. but i'll see it this saturday for i know someone who has 2 of them in their possesion. if anyone from the orange county area would like to join me, please email me at majorbonr@hatmail.com and i'll try my best to get us a sneak peek!

the siting was on south coast highway and oak st. in laguna beach. looked like it had out of state dealer plates.

I saw these guys twice on Sunday. Both of the cars have MFG's licence plates from NJ. Looked like they were doing some testing or shooting a commercial. Both drivers had Subaru shirts on. I rolled up on them at a light while I was on my bike. The car was production with the STi emblems on the trunk, side doors and grill. Didn't want to be fan boy and start asking a bunch of stupid questions that they have probably been asked all weekend. The car will be released soon enough.

yep these are press cars 25 of them in OC. They are doing a press release party but doesn't mean they are going to be available any time soon. I would still bet on the later half of the summer

With so many reported test cars around now, I am sure they will have a road test in the upcoming issues of Car and Driver, Road and Track, Autombile, etc....

I cant wait to see how well it performs!

I guess the higher cost of living in Cali is worth getting a glemse of the STi before it is released.
All I see here in Alabama is old used cars.

Today a dealer told me SOA is three months behind on STi production. They will hit the showroom around Sept.

I saw them, too! I was on the PCH just south of Laguna Beach on Tuesday and saw one heading my way. He turned in front of me and went into a hotel parking lot. Before my heart could recover two more came by me and turned in at the same place. Awesome looking cars!
