I just came back from Australia where we spent our honeymoon. I am not writing this to inform you about my honeymoon trip or tell you how great of a time we had. I am going to focus more on the car stuff.

First of all, I was drooling over some of the cars there. The 3 most popular ones among the sport car enthusiasts are: Imprezas (tons of different versions), Skylines (I think I saw like 30-40 of them) and Supras.

One day we were taking a tour bus through the city and I noticed a Subaru dealership through the window. I immediately notice a bunch of new '04 WRXs on the lot. I continue to scan the area, hoping for a red traffic light so that I gain more time. Then I see it. Second floor, large sign "Subaru Technica International". I look deeper. My heart starts to race. There are 2 of them, blue and silver STi. I immediately begin a campaign to convince my wife that we HAVE TO come to this dealer at some point.

So a few days later I was on the train going to check out our car (albeit a Aussie version). This thing is awesome. Pretty much everything about it screams performance. I especially liked the much improved interior as I was never a fan of the quality/appearance of the previous Imprezas. They sell the car for AU$60K, which equates US$35-37K (the dealer told me he had a few people trade in the Porsche for it).

Another interesting fact is the sell the EVO for AU$90K (US$55-60K)!, which probably explains why i didn't see one.

I can't wait to get it! For now I bought some WRC and STi T-shirts.

:lol: :D That's funny. I was actully thinking the same. I was gone for 2 weeks, come back, check the board and there is absolutely no new relevant news. We need some more topics and more members here.

Congrats to you too on your 10yrs!

BTW, I just signed up for a track day at Summit Point on July 11th. Hope the car is here.

oh man, i've been wanting to do FATT ever since i moved here. if the car is here, i will definately sign up. i'm putting it on my calendar and hope nothing trumps it in the meantime. hmm. actually, for my first FATT, i think i'd prefer to go out in my '91 nx2000. i wouldn't be heart-broken if i balled it up.

I would suggest signing up ASAP. July 11th is the last event that has any spots open. Also when I spoke to them they said they would probably be full by the end of the week.

Let me know what you've decided

Thanks for the heads up on the FATT. Just snagged a spot on July 11th. If the STi isn't here by then, I'll just have to settle for using the WRX.

Again...thanks..and hope to see you or others there.

No problem. Let's talk before then so we can make sure we see each other there, unless we all have STis by then, in which case I will know who to look for.
