Im all registered...im just wondering if there will be any kind of show/meet&greet after the parade. Id love to check out some other subies!! Yeah I really like the 09s too! Waaaay better than the 08s (im pretty sure the piston issue was fixed from 08 to 09 also). Im happy with my 07 though Just need to save up 4500 for my STI tranny swap....more $$ ....its an addiction I guess, never satisfied

What did you guys think? I had fun checking out everyones cars, that parade was kinda ridiculous.....thought it was pretty short.....and what was up with us sitting on that road for so long? One guy popped a coolant hose in his WRX. I helped push him off into a parking lot.... overall it was fun. Nowhere near the record though...I think it was somewhere around 450 subies, well short of 1000. What was that red bus-looking thing? It was kinda cool lol

I thought it was pretty cool. It was a big Subaru show that's for sure. There were some really sweet cars there. It was cool to talk to other owners and ask them about what mods they had and stuff.

The official count was 339, and it was a new world record. Here is a gallery of pics.

That sounds pretty cool. Hopefully the weather will hold out. I'm going to go if it doesn't rain.

Yeah, I've been going when the weather is nice. I went a few weeks ago with a friend that has a Lotus Elise. The parking lot was so full that we couldn't find a spot in the show. I'm pretty sure it goes through October, so let's hope it's nice on Friday.
