Smile AAAAHH!!! There's a mint condition SVX at the building next to me!

It's really cool to see these things - you hardly ever see them down here. It's almost a rally blue. The only bad thing is SVX's are automatic.

Here in CO, we see 'em pretty often. I saw a greyish-silver one the other night. Other than the slushbox, (sorry SubieGal) they are very nice cars.

The only two Subarus where I work are my RS and a co-worker's SVX! Pretty sweet having these two cars around to show people that Subaru makes more than station wagons.

I see 'em pretty often here in Nor Cal as well. Maybe one or two a week during the commute. There is a real nice green/grey two tone around the corner from my office, but I have never seen the owner. But then, here I see another RS about once a week too.

i see about 2 SVX's a week here, mostly the white and the creme color. they are very nice cars. when i was buying my RS, there was a guy with a creme colored one that came to the dealer wanting to trade it in for a new one. but he was let down when he was told that they were not made anymore, and he left. oh well.

The art teacher at my daughter's high school drives a black SVX - somehow that figures.

Subi Chick--He works at n-space on Grand National Dr. I had an interview with him a while ago. I think he plans on selling it and buying a 95 Porsche 911

Exclamation

You guyz and girlz should have been in Burlington Vermont this last weekend. We had a Fall Foliage SVX meet. 24 plus SVX's from all over the East coast. I personally drove over 500 miles for the trip. I was one of many who got speeding tickets. I suppose it was only a matter of time before I got one. It is so easy to speed when you have ultra quiet tires(Yokohama AVS db Decibels) and an engine that only turns 3000RPMs at 90MPH. Had alot of fun!!!!!!!!

For the slush box comments........ If any of you take a lil' bit of time to read the reviews on the SVX tranny you will find such comments as....."Like all the best "intelligent" systems, the transmission is transparent in operation. It requires only a few experiments w/ aggressive driving to relize that the shifter may indeed be smarter than the driver in selecting the right gear." ***Car And Driver/Sept. 1991*** I've never heard a SVX owner make comments about how the Impreza only comes with 4 banger so why do you peeps continually knock our auto when most of you have never even driven one?!?!?!?!? I'm not trying to be disrespectful but you should back off on the slushbox comments if you don't know what your going up against. To be completely honest I am far from impressed with the 5-speed that is in the Impreza. My auto does a much better job!!!

Driving it fast. Driving it safley,
B.C.

P.S. Like I said ..... Not trying to be disrespectful but the "slushbox" remarks get a lil' old after a while!!!

P.P.S. If it was close to Raly Blue it was a Laguna Blue SVX One of my favorite colors for our cars.

Didn't mean to offend. I am not one of those drivers who thinks I'm faster b/c I drive 5 speed - I just don't like the automatic experience. I like to drive my car and feel it.
And yes, it is that color, I had forgotten the name.
Great to see more Sport Scoobies around my area.

Subi Chick,

Not really offended but more so very sensitive of my baby. I don't do well with people picking on my "significant other"

Subie Gal,

That kinda looks like the color I have on mine

B.C.
