Default My Crazy Sighting Today!!!

So check this out, I drive up to long beach today with my girlfriend to do some surfing and on the way up we see these tents and cops and semitrucks on the side of this logging road I was joking around and said hey maybe its a drug bust or a rally or something I thought nothing of it. So after surfing were driving back to Victoria from Tofino and we come around this corner and there is a cop waving us down and another guy with him, he comes up to my window and says just sit tight for a few minutes were filming a comercial for Subaru ......... I was like say that again, so then I asked what kinda cars they were shooting and he was ahh I dont know there is a few of them. So we sit tight and get to go now I was hoping to see some of the cars they were filming so we drive like 2 minutes up the road and we see a bunch of cars on the side of the road and there it was the STI sitting on the side of the road i almost crashed looking at it. i turned around and pulled over i had to take a closer look when i got up to it she was running all the windows were tinted even the front one but the sweet exhaust tone coming from the sti muffler was beautiful, the seats and the steering wheel are so nice and the gold rims with brembo breaks Drool... I couldnt believe how big the scoop on the sti is its huge but it shows the intercooler so well. so i hung around for a bit and watched them take the old sti for a rip with the camera truck in chase. what a growl that car has so nice. it was probably the coolest thing i have seen in a while. i wanted to take pictures but i forgot my camera at home, I even had my camera in my hand this morning and said ahhh i wont need it haa!!!!

lol good for you!

This reminds me of the time me and my friend went to whistler and on the way, we saw a weird looking hatchback getting off the tow truck. We thought nothing of it at first, just think it was some weird looking hatch doing a commercial shoot on the sea to sky, and we went kept driving to whistler.

On the way back, we saw that truck AGAIN, and we thought we'd take some pictures of it so I ended up chasing the truck from Portal Cove all the way to Exit 11 on Taylor way trying to take some nice shots of it.. lol

and it ends up we were chasing the new Toyota Echo Hatch pretty cool looking~ megs and everything, but it's still an Echo

I have seen a very nice RB wrx on St John street at around 12:05pm today. I thought that it was a S2000 with such a bright HID when I saw it far away on opposite side of the traffic. Once I got closer, then I was like, "WOW, such a nice wrx!". It has JDM headlight with blue HID, gold wheels and spoiler risers. It looks exactly like a JDM wrx.

It is the nicest wrx I have ever seen on the road.

Hey Shane,

That's too weird! Just last week I was talking to the guy who is selling this rally car on the RallyBC classifieds


He's a stuntman who works mostly in Vancouver. He said that he was approached by the producers of this commercial to do the driving, but he had to decline due to a scheduling conflict.

In the final twist of this story, he referred them to Scott Trinder, the guy who built and raced the black Toyota shown above before the stuntman bought it!

Anyway, I guess they cheaped out and decided not to use a professional driver. Pretty brave, considering the value of the STi.

Cheers,

Bill

One of my friends also saw them filming. He called me to day and asked if there was was a rally on the island on the weekend, but having read this, I was able to tell him they were filming a comercial for the new STi.
