Post So what kinda person drives a RS?

I've been checking out this board for a couple of weeks after i looked at a RS at my local dealer. I had a '84 Turbo wagon (gutless wonder but extremely fun) when I was in high school and it was the greatest vehicle i ever had (with the possible exception of my '77 Toyota Landcruiser) so I thought i'd take a look at the RS or better yet wait for the Turbo. So what i'm interested to know is what kind of a person buys an impreza.

Does it really matter of what type of person buys the car? I figure as long as the person that buys it enjoys it, great!

BTW, on this board we range from 15 to 50-something, male to female (yup, might even be in-betweens around! ), and even rich to having to live in the car. Intelligent people to not-so-intelligent ones, pizza boys to lawyers to engineers to mechanics to whatever else you can think of.

It's just one big happy (most of the time) family around here.

Cool

Let's examine this intellectually.

Subarus are known for their practicallity. 4wd go anywhere in safty kind of practical. So RS owners are somewhat practical.

RS is an extreme car. Build for those that are somewhat crazy, and like to risk their lives driving just for the fun of it.

Add this up and it looks like we are all Practically Crazy.

We'll that describes me anyway.

I think that Subaru owners are individualists. The RS looks different, drives different, feels different. If you want to be conformist you buy a honda or acura, but if you want to be unique you get a Subaru (ok, that isn't your only choice, but you get the point).

Tim,
You hit it on the head. That's one of the biggest reasons. I DON'T want to drive one of the many cookie-cutter cars out there. It's nice to spend just the average amount for a car and have it attract attention like an exotic...
