Default The Mid-Atlantic FAQ

Mid-A FAQ:

Q: Where is the Mid-Atlantic Region?

A: Mid-A is a state of mind, not a state of residence. Only the coolest of the cool would even bother posting here. If the shoe fits, wear it!

That being said, most of the posters in this forum live in Maryland, DC, Virginia, and West Virginee. Pennsylvania folks are not sure if they are NorthEast or Mid-A, so occasionally they just move on down here to clear up any ambiguity.

Q: Do you guys (and gals, there are gals, aren't there?) ever get together?

A: Actually, that is 2 questions. There are at least a couple of gals who post in here, but I don't know that they have been to any of the organized meets, maybe some of the mini-meets.

For the folks that are closer to Ballmer than NoVa, you can shoot pool on Fridays, 7ish:

Hot Shots Pool Hall
8101 Pulaski Hwy
Baltimore MD 21237

Q: What is a good place to get my car turbo'd?

A: Don't know that we have identified a local shop. Rallispec.

Q: What about other stuff - you know, tires, painting, mechanical, the like?

A: See below.

European Auto Service Inc.
8806 Monard Dr, Silver Spring, MD 20910-1815
Rob, Volvorules i Club, is a mechanic.

Beltway (495) to Georgia Ave South; pass Staples on R; R on Seminary Rd; pass light at 2nd Ave; bear L on Brookeville Rd; cross RR bridge & Walter Reed annex on R; R on Pittman Dr; dead ends at Monard Dr, make L.

Altered Atmosphere
12 Meem Ave Suite E, Gaithersburg MD, 20877-2116
301.330.8835v 240.632.9619f
AWD dynomometer (Dynojet).

Foreign Auto Excellence, Inc.
1439 Tilco Drive, Frederick, MD 21704-6632
301-694-3112v 301-694-2748f
Ref: oct2000 - Matthew, matt in fl i Club

I've got a friend (Allan) in Frederick who runs an independent Subaru shop. He's been there for at least 10 years or so. He's Subaru certified and a wizard. My family's had their cars serviced there since 1988 or a little earlier.
P.S. I schedule service appointments when I'm in town. That means alot when you're 1200 miles away.

Octagon Spares
348 Main St, Felton, PA 17322-9002
Ref: feb2001 Jon Bogert

Curry's Auto Service
14210 F Sullyfield Circle
Chantilly, VA 20151
Tel (703)502-0400
Fax (703)502-4515

of Ashburn
1510 Moran Road
Sterling, VA 20166
Tel (571)522-1002
Fax (571)522-1010

They are located off of Waxpool Rd. Take an immediate left once you turn left at the light off of Hwy 28N.


Q: Where is a good local place to pick up Altezza lights for my Impreza?

A: Umm, maybe you should read the first question and answer.

Q: Is there like a real Subaru club here?

A: There have been rumblings of creating an Impreza car club in the area, with the purpose of having marquee events, etc. Hasn't quite come together yet. Want to volunteer?

There is a "Subaru Club of America," and it is based in Delaware (sure, it could be Mid-A, too!). The website is http://www.subaruclub.com They do some cool events like a Fall Foliage tour and stuff like that - even gimmick rallies.

Q: Where can I autocross?

A: Lots of places in the DC area, plus or minus. There is a MidAtlantic Council which coordinates things between various car clubs in the area. You can find the council events at the ALTD website (http://www.autocrossers.org). Other clubs and venues: NASA Virinia Region (http://www.nasaracing.net), Virginia Motorsports Club (http://www.vmsc.org).

Q: What about rallying? Rallying is cool!

A: In this past year we have gotten SCCA sponsored RallyCross here in Mid-A. Lots of fun. Check it out at http://www.dcrally.com . Know of any open fields where we can play?

PS - hitting a tree results in automatic deduction of cool points.

Q: What if I want to run my Subie on a race track?

A: There are a number of different companies that run Track Days, Performance Driving Schools, and Time Trials at some Local (and some not so local) tracks. Best thing to do is click on the names below and check their sites.

Car Guys
Driving Dynamics

Q: Who is the moderator here?

A: Pipercub, SkToBe, and rhdude

Q: Are there links to other local subaru sites and/or forums?

Yes, check out: http://subaru.awdcars.com/

I don't know about you guys but I have a hard time keeping track of who has what car and what screen name goes with which person. So I thought, maybe we should have a listing with name, AIM, location, and an updated picture of your car, etc.

Good idea eh? Maybe sticky material? We'll see.
