Default Where are all the old timers??!

Hi folks,

So I am now on my third scoob and been a member of this forum on and off, under various names, since about 2008.
I was just wondering who has been a member since around this time? Interested to see if there are many folk left from back in the day?

Also, since I am 35 now, am I considered a mature subaru driver? Lol how many guys with inorezas on here are over 35? Do not be shy ☺️

Bought my first Subaru in 1999 in Australia, had 4 along the way including a 22B which I bought here in the UK.

Joined what seems a lifetime ago, but haven't really posted much - hence the ginormous post count

Looking for number 5, but its not as easy as I thought. Maybe I'm just a picky bar steward!

Ha ha thbks guys - I really don't feel as old now!

On a serious note - do you give a toss about the boy racer/ chav image impreza have? Do you give it any consideration at all?

What makes you still want to own inprezas over other cars?

Joined 2008 after lurking for a couple of years. 2004 widetrack STI sold it for 2009 RS then E92 M3, chased the thrill of the Scooby and then decided to get it got to go back.




Blobeye

Then back to a hawkeye... Didn't like the new shape but its grown on me.




Hawkeye

Think once you've had a Scooby there's always a place in the heart for them no matter what other road users think of them.

Not at all. The impreza stood out among a sea of BMWs, Mercs, and VAG stuff in the work car park. I get a few comments along the lines of "when are you going to get a grown up car" and "I bet that doesn't do many miles per gallon". But I get more people asking about how it drives and if I work on it myself.
I know about the lairy reputation so I drive very politely (especially in town) and always wave.
