Street racing has no appeal for me. Neither does drag racing. Subarus will always appeal to someone who does his homework and researches what they're buying rather than what it looks like or what it sounds like. The stat sheet on a Subaru in a cold weather climate is hard to beat for anywhere near the price.
I don't like the attitude, the teenagers, and the skin-deep flash that often comes with our community. I agree, sometimes I feel like I'm getting old. Then again, every meet I go to the crowd seems to be aging with me. We're all folks who played Gran Tourismo 2 or 3 I would wager. Do I cringe when a kid asks me about "how many boost" I'm running? Yes.
Am I forced to embrace a ricer culture because I want to drive my kid to school in the snow while enjoying a manual transmission and a car that can get out of it's own way? How many 4-door reliable AWD manual transmission cars make similar power for less? Yeah, I can't think of any either. If that makes me a ricer, god help us all.
