My old friend, Joe, had one back in the late sixties, early seventies. Not stock, of course. It had serious mechanical problems when he bought it - cheap. Replacing the drive train with a hot Chevy turned it into a really fun car. He used to race it at Lions Drag Strip, often against another old friend, Bob, and his mystery Maserati (also a hot Chevy engine). Ah, the good old days.

This looks like it wouldn't even roll.  Looks like some kind of toothbrush or hairdryer actually.

It looks like it's doing about 75 just sitting there.

I don't like the rear spoiler. I don't like the side air intakes. And I really don't like the drop-scoop hood... makes it look like a harelip!

Too new.




When I was in Boy Scouts, oh this would've been about 1965 or 1966, I carved a car for a merit badge (at least I THINK that's why I did it?)  Wish I still had it.  I made a three-wheel green four-door mini-SUV with large curved windows, including a back window that curved around the back.  It was a design (except for the three-wheel part) that seemed eminently practical and attractive. It had protective cladding along the bottom, and fog lights in the bumper.

Oh, hell. If you're going to go Subaru, go all the way.

I did not realize — after twenty years of owning this car — until researching for this thread — that 1998 was the first model year.  The Forester was introduced at a 1997 audio show, and first available for purchase in 1998.  

For some reason I thought it dated to 1995 or so.

P.S. - Those drawings remind me of Margaret Keane.

Really? To me, she doesn't look a thing like those drawings.

You do realize that all of those things you mentioned are functional, don't you?

Hmmm, not bad.  The grill seems disproportionately large, but the side & rear views look good. I'm seeing this color of metallic red more and more often, and learning to like it a lot.

But this might be somewhat of a problem:
