Talking Pictures of the new STX you haven't seen!

I slacked on posting these earlier, sorry, but finally here they are....



The STX we all know (and weren't allowed to touch!)




Yes! It really drives!




and yes, it really stalls...




...and doesn't start again! Look who's touching it now!! heh heh!




That's my friend Chuck in the orange hat, I'm never in the pictures, always behind the camera...

We ultimately had to push the thing up into the covered trailer (I have a pic of that somewhere). It was HEEEAVY!!

It was total chaos after the show....long story really....but next year our goal is to get some keys and drive some concepts!! Believe me, we could have easily done it this year!!

I see why it was heavy.
Your buddies twin and a group was pushing from the back, while he and a group were pushing from the front. Notice he is the only one that has a twin there. And like the guy holding his cigarette and only leaning on the front wasn't much help.

I wonder why it stalled. No gas maybe? I know for indoor car shows, you usually have to be real low on gas, and tape off the gas tank, disconnect the battery, etc. Maybe it was out of juice.

How did the thing sound when it was running?

I think that thing would look a lot better if they changed the design of the front bumper. The rest of it is pretty cool.

Pretty cool. Can run with only the fog lights on. Subaru must have been reading this board when we said it would be nice if our cars could do that

Rick,

Yes i believe you are right about the gas. it will still be fun to give my friend at SOA a hard time about their new concept! heh heh!

I really couldn't tell you how it sounded, he wasn't getting on it really, I mean, the guy driving got locked it, and I had to show him where the lock was to get him out! haha! Plus all of the other cars were echoing through the building.

Twins!?!? Oh! hahahaha!! No, that's two different pictures! Funny though, it does look like one.

Cool

Nice pictures SubieRacer

I have to admit, though I really don't like trucks at all, that the ST-X does look nice. (They need to get rid of the "Subaru" letters on the front of the hood though ) It's smaller than the pics on the SOA site suggest, which I like. I will be really impressed if it performs as nice as it looks.

Wow....I like the STX! It looks like a modern version of the Brat! I thinkit would have looked better in all silver. The orange just looks...well...cheesy(I think there are cheese in that color).

Super charged 2.5 liter, huh? Looks like I might make a trade or get my girlfriend to buy this truck, once she starts making money.

Maybe I'm the only one...but I don't like it. Too much ugly plastic. Kinda reminds me of a RAV4 or something. Ugh.

Oh, and lol@Rick Bruckner!

Thumbs up

This hybrid is way cooler than the quad cabs that Nissan, Dodge, and Ford have come out with. It actually has a usable bed when the rear seats come down. The four foot bed is useless in the quad cabs.

Ironically, the new Chevy Avalanche has similar body cladding, has a similar fold down feature, and is coming to market.

It doesn't look like that S/C will fit in the RS's.
