In the UK, the car is affectionately known as Scooby after the cartoon character Scooby Doo, which rhymes with Subaru. The first film reference known is in the 1989 film Always in which Richard Dreyfuss is a Subaru car salesman and his friend John Goodman refers to him as selling Scooby Doos.

Meanwhile in Australia the common nickname is Rex, which rhymes with WRX.

BTW, you might want to check out this link. There is a local meet tomorrow at 2pm if you can attend. If you can't make it, at least say howdy to the locals in the Mid-A Forum
