Default Truckload of STi's spotted

A buddy of mine with a WRX was driving I-5 North today near Los Banos, California, and saw a truckload of blue '04 STi's heading South towards LA. Could they be press cars?

All I have to prove this is what he told me over the phone. Anyone else see this?

Anybody want to hop in a three black Civics with neon-green undercarriage lights, drive under the truck, and take grappling hooks to hijack the truck?

I'm willing to split the STi's 50/50.

Oh, and the Civics have Nos.

I actually saw a car carrier full of Evo's on my way home from work today. It was on the side of the road with a flat.

If they were STi's would that mean that we will be receiving info really soon?

I know Animalmother's source also, and he seems to be pretty sure that he saw 'em. "all blue, with the large spoilers" Granted they were going in the opposite direction. Anyway, if they were leaving from lets say the bay area ports, they would definitely be heading south on I-5.

I have some faith they were real.

Now,let those monkeys at Car and Driver get a hold on one and print us out some damn numbers.

For what it's worth, there was a thread in this forum only a few days ago:
Shiv will test STi @ Willow Springs in 2 wks.

So are you saying you got invited to the launch event again Glen? And is this the same event that Shiv will supposedly be driving at Willow Springs?

I don't know anything about Shiv's test -- it looked to me like it was a special event.

No, I haven't been invited anywhere --- SOA doesn't need my help to sell STi's. And I'm not a member of the press.

Yeah, looks like someone from the SCIC forum spotted the same truck.
Damn, Chris should have turned around on I-5 and go after the truck and take some pictures.
