    Subaru, like VW has cheapened their product but they still have managed to hang on to their weird customer base. I do not hear much good about how these new Subies hold up or drive...although when i have driven them they seem pleasant enough. Just not at all entertaining.

    The fact that the IMpreza has real room inside is a big thing.

    I think people are so busy with their lives that they don't care as much about how the thing drives. Al;so, they had to cheapen their product because the yen is so strong.

    A lot of the cars that Japan is selling us should be 5 to 8 k cheaper if the dollar was stronger.

    We had a solstice that was supercharged rather than Turbocharged when I raced with the Dayton Corvette Club a couple of weeks ago. Very impressive...

    I had him 6 of ten runs, and on the final run he had me by two tenths of a second....but a very fast car indeed.

    • I was hunting around for Airbus 340 vids.  How I miss this plane.  Back in its heyday, if I got on an Airbus 340, I was sort of steamed I didn't get onto a Boeing 747.  Now, I wish I had ridden on more of them. This video is sort of long, but very educational.  For one, it pointed out that the Airbus 330 (twin) and Airbus 340 (quad) were developed at the same time and share a lot of parts ... both are 2-4-2.  The 340 (quad) fell out of favor, while the 330 (twin) keeps spawning new variants, the latest of which is the -900 neo.   They made 4 of the Airbus 340 - 200, 300, 500, and 600.  One saw a lot of 300s and then a lot of 600s.  I've flown on both.  The 300 "looks" better.  Yes, it was the current time's answer to the very dated Boeing 707 and its skinny engines.  The 600 roars and those big engines get that disproportionately long fuselage (longer than a 747, IIRC) to rotate fairly quickly. Just great!  A cool 300 version, flown by Swiss and obviously in Swiss airspace.  Did I mention that I miss this plane?
    • I couldn't photograph it, but I saw a near perfect silver Saturn Aura sedan today.  I don't see those often.  I'm guessing they were possibly on the same platform as the Grand Am and Alero, but they did a nice job with this car.  Toward the end, Saturn was making some nicer looking cars, quite a step up from the spartan jellybean products they initially rolled out. Some dog/car sightings ... all this afternoon: 1.  I went to the AAA to load up a travel card and a little black lab puppy was hanging his head out of the car window near where I had parked and was wagging up a storm. 2.  I was sitting there getting coffee and, looking at the drive through, a guy driving out of it with one of those whipped coffee drinks let his dog in the passenger seat take the first big lick out of all that whipped garbage on those drinks ... don't give your dog sweets. 3.  I saw an upline SUV from which a German Shepherd had hoisted himself up via the console and was sticking his head out of it. They are all goofy critters.
    • @ccap41 This will help as the final 17 states have approval that has triggered the first of the funds to install coast to coast along all national highways Chargers. States get final OK to build highway EV charging network | AP News QUOTE:  The Transportation Department said it had OK’d EV charger plans from a last set of 17 states, triggering the release of $1.5 billion in federal funds to all jurisdictions nationwide — or $5 billion over five years — to install or upgrade chargers along 75,000 miles (120,000 kilometers) of highway from coast to coast, with a goal of 500,000 EV chargers nationwide. Plans for the other 33 states and the District of Columbia were approved earlier this month.
    • No, I have not had a chance to see a GMC Hummer or the Rivian in person yet. While I have seen plenty of Rivian R1T around this area, I also saw on the news that the Bellevue service and delivery center had their first R1S's, I have not seen like you one in the wild yet. Thank you for posting, awesome to see. I do like just about everything on the Rivian both internally and externally. GMC Hummer, my big issue that we have discussed here in other threads and @Robert Hall and I believe others here have also mentioned is the depressing black all interiors and the lack of options for said interior colors. The First Edition GMC Hummers were a no go with that ugly colored black and white or was it grey and white, NASA inspired theme. While the wife and I both like the external styling, the internal is a failure to us for colors, style and layout is fine. I have to say that I am really liking the Rivian look and style works so well. It is going to be interesting to see what GM and Ford does for Full size SUV EV style. I also already responded to a GM survey on full size SUV/Trucks and bashed them about the lack of interior color options and exterior color options. Why does an EV from GM not have a green color of some sort to show off their Green Auto's?
