Angry Speaking of Ottawa sightings...

I saw a black WRX last Thursday (21 June) on St. Joseph Blvd in Orleans. I was behind ya for a bit and waved, but driver was indifferent.

Also, yesterday I saw a BRP coupe with 22b wing, stickers, and ADR2000 (methinks) 17" rims; I think it was Stef's car... Nobody in it though, it was parked outside someone's place. Who did the stickers for you? Looks good!

And every once and a while, when the moon is just right and the planets are aligned just so, I see someone else in a white RS sedan with painted skirts... I wish I knew who it was; I was the only one in town for a while

Oh yeah... I keep seeing a WRB WRX kicking around Orleans. I don't know if it's the same person all the time, but does it belong to anyone here??

Cheers!

One thing I noticed with the advent of the WRX is the "snobbery". I wave and honk (gotta use the Hellas) to any RS (or even Legacy GT) I see truckin' along here in Ottawa; 9/10 times, I get an enthusiastic response. But it seems like the new WRX owners do not share in our enthusiasm I don't want to keep looking like an idiot honking and high-beaming someone, only to get a "***" kind of stare.

Ah, the pains of going "mainstream"

Carlo,

Gotta agree with you for the most part... There are REX owners out there and there are RS owners out there who do not understand "the brotherhood".

Fortunately, most Scooby owners are good guys... all we can do in the case of indifference is shake your head and wave at the next guy.

Still frustrating though...

HI,

I think somebody in a white RS (?? foggy memory) honked at me on Friday night at Heron and Riverside (at lights on Heron, west bound). I waved back, but the guy was pretty near past me (he was headed east) by the time I waved and didn't appear to be looking at me. This was at about 4:50pm.

Was it any of you guys?

Wink WRX owners...

Hi,
I dont know about other owners, but I do wave back... I was also the first WRX (one of the first anyway...) owner to join the Ottawa Subaru Club. It's more a question of not knowing the "brotherhood" than being snob. Of the 3 persons that bought a WRX at my dealership, none knew about the club/tradition...

Give us some time, we're just trying to fit in... BTW, I work in Gloucester, so the WRB WRX close to Orleans might be mine. Just check if the license plate has a contour that says equipped by Speedstyle...

Later,

Matt

atroz: Wasn't me on Friday... I don't usually cruise around that end of town - especially during traffic! (Don't tell me that there's ANOTHER white RS in Ottawa!)

Matt: I'll check for the plates next time. Unfortunately, by the time I notice that it's a WRX it's usually gone by! For some reason I have a bit harder time picking out a REX than the old school RS.

Skeandhu: The BRP and 22B wing combo with decals is me. Decals were done by v6scoobie (search the private classifieds).

Where did you see me???

I rarely see WRX's and/or RS's but very often, I see OBS but nobody waves back.

Stefan, I saw your car on a side street just north of Garneau High School. I don't recall the name of the street, but my friend's family lives a couple doors down from where you were parked.

There were a few neighbours on their porches watching me as I slowly cruised by, but nobody was around who looked like they owned it.

Figured it was yours though 'cause the wing.
