Default STI on TV. VH1's Fab 40 for 2006

This show is basically life styles of the rich and famous, ya with me? The show goes through all kinds of super expensive hotels, mansions, gadgets, spa treatments, 2 million dollar golfing and a bunch of other yuppy shiot. Then all of a sudden what do I see !?!?!?! A company that provides sick a$$ cars for you to drive as you wish. Its like a Hertz rent-a-car but with Ferraris, Porsche turbos, super fixed up 67 Chevelle AND 05 WRB STI. From the show:

Classic Car Club Manhattan Life time membership costs $55,000 And I QUOTE one of the guys that worked there "you don't join this club to drive a Ford Mustang"!!!!!!!!!!!

also no juvenile EVOS but they do provide a 05 WRB STI for there members to drive!!!


I love my STI...Its like im rich and famous!!

I think the STI holds its own with all the cars they had. Its just nice to have a car that is considered "exotic".

I saw that too.

How on Earth could a life membership cost only $55,000?

If that's true I will never buy a car again, and just keep cycling throught their inventory for the next 40 years or so.
Makes no sense to me.

Makes no sense to you because you dont know the details on the membership. big biz got it figured out, dont worry for them.

That was fun seeing the sti in the group. camera panned over it 3 times quickly.

and the STi is in there list on their site with photo!
ALthough, they said on the show a Mustang will not be found there! In the list of cars a Mustang sits right above the STi.

Anyway here's their write up-
--------
2005 Subaru Impreza WRX

We're convinced that when you drive this car you'll think that your mouth is connected to the gas pedal because as you accelerate through the gears you will not be able to stop the smile from spreading across your face. If you've never driven an Impreza before then you're in for a real treat. Unlike Ferrari who spends millions of dollars making their cars look like works of art, Subaru gave all their money to the engineers to squeeze every ounce of performance out of this 4 wheel drive turbo monster. The Impreza combines rocket acceleration with pin-sharp handling. Quite possibly the most fun you can have in a car?

Welcome to The Classic Car Club Manhattan

Located in up-and-coming Hudson Square, just west of SoHo, Classic Car Club Manhattan is a private club that offers Members access to its exclusive lounge and the keys to the most exotic, desired and beautiful cars ever assembled.

Members of the Club receive an allocation of points that can be exchanged throughout the year for dozens of driving days with any of the Club's classic sports, luxury and touring cars.

Outside of the yearly membership, the only cost to the Member is the fuel they burn. All the other costs attached to owning and operating the cars (insurance, tax, maintenance, repair, storage, security, breakdown recovery etc) are covered by the club. Club Membership is renewable on a yearly basis.

Wouldn't they charge a good deal of money for every rental? I'm sure it's not "pay $55k and drive a Ferrari for the rest of your life" kinna deal.

STi's may not cost as much as Ferrari's and Porsche's but they can hold their own with them... As long as they don't smack any bling blings, then it's all good.
