Default Sionara Subaru

I was taking my daughter to dinner last night, and a guy in a new Subaru WRX wagon with a really loud exhaust was doing the old parking lane stoplight race thing at every light. I decided to see if I could keep up.

The light turned green, and I hopped on it, spinning my wheels for a half second, then let up, and rompled on it again. He was game, and hit it also...

I flat out dusted him. Pulled away clean, and kept going while he had to make the 1-2 shift, I was gaining more ground on him, but there were a couple of cars ahead, and my kid in the car, so I let up.

At the next light, I pulled up beside him and we both rolled down the windows, and I said, dude, I totally had you! He goes, "yeah, whatever."

Nothing like a good sport, huh?

I don't know why the hell ppl buy wagons. I personally hate the look. BMW or even Mercedes wagons,

NICE KILL. I';d race one myself but I don't want to lose. I'll wait till I get an SSEi.

Does it really take you a minute to get to 100mph? That sounds way too slow for your car. My old Celebrity could do that.

I haven't timed myself to 100 but I'm sure I could do it in 30 seconds tops.
