Lightbulb 02-07 Impreza nicknames?

I was thinking the other day... we should come up with common nicknames for the current generation (02-07) Imprezas since the newest generation (08+) models look so completely different. What do you guys think?

02-03 = the bugeye

04-05 = the blobeye

06-07 = the hawkeye

I've heard 04-05 referred to as the "Peanut Eye" (for what it's worth)

+1 on the 04-05 referred to as the "peanut eye". I have no clue what to call the 06-07s. And Im not really interested in the 08s, at least not yet. If I want a legacy, I will buy a legacy, not a pint size variation of it.

Yeah, that's really weird... I don't think I even know anybody in Illinois. I was just repeating what I've heard other people refer to the cars as, so I guess you could say I copied someone. I was just wondering what the more common nicknames were so I can start using them too. I like peanut eye for the 04-05. Blob eye just kinda makes it sound funny and unattractive.

around here the 06-07 are the "ugly" type. It's not overly demeaning anymore. I think the 02-05 guys used it and the newer guys embraced it...

It's fun to drive....

I've heard Impreza referred to as the "Bug Eye" or even sometimes "Hawk Eye".
