Default Looking around...

I have always been a HUGE GM muscle/sportscar guy. I have had two LS1 powered F-BODies and one VETTE that I put a lot into and it was a really hot little ride too, but I have always been attracted to the SUBARU's WRX STi .I recently sold my 2002 Z28 and have been just looking around at what deals are out there for C5 ZO6s and C6s and admit, that I am finding some sweet deals, but I am still leaning towards the STi.

Am I just a nut case? The STi would be a bit more practical when I wanted to take my son(s) (second due in October) out for a joy ride. (No, not out looking for races.) I live in Hawaii and a smaller car is easier to cruise in and find parking. I will never give up my love for the VETTE, NEVER! However, I find myself looking at STis more often, when I am driving, on line, in parking lots, etc.

Okay, I am done. Opinions?

An STi is a very fun car in a very different way. =) Go get a test drive, and/or find a friend who had a modded one and let him take you for a ride.

Oh and like you mentioned, Subaru's are very practical.

Any particular reason why you linked IWSTI.com twice in your post?

Didn't realize I did that. I am going to have to find one and test drive it.
