What's your first scooby memory??
« on: September 22, 2010, 11:41:14 PM »
Im 29, so I wasn't even a teenager when the Impreza first arrived here!
So in the very early 90's I was hitching (which I did all the time) and a Red Irish turbo impreza
The first I had ever seen! I loved the louvre vents on the bonnet,
I hopped in and he took off, I commented that it sounded like my Dad's Alfa (33 cloverleaf, 1.7 Two twin choke webber Boxer engine)
He told me about the 2.0 Turbo motor, I was fasinated, I said it must be expencive to insure (the kinda thing I thought of when I was that age)
He said it cost the size as a Ferrari!

It defo left an impression on me!
Any interesting stories out there?

Watching the Circuit of Ireland Rally was the first time I ever seen an Impreza.....
It was running full antilag on the backroads not far from where my rents live now.....

the sound of that thing breaking the morning silence........
the rumble out of the exhaust
the banging of the antilag
the squeal of the 4 wheels as he came around the corner in front of me full broad side.........


I wanted 1 from that moment........
No annimosity shown here
Infact I couldnt give a rats ass

I think the first Colin McCrae Rally game on PS1 introduced me to the murky world of Subaru :iroc:

I saw a scooby first time when I was 10 year old and only I could say was WOW, I sad to myself one day I will have it. I had my first 1.6L impreza at the age of 19, and now I own WRX. So dreams come true  :subaru:

my first memory of a scooby....

probably when i was like 17 just got my licence,
my brother arrived home in a 97 purple/blue irish turbo..
the noise an look of the car to me was unreal, i was driving an xr2i at the time
so i was dieing to drive a car with a bigger engine,
he got it with a full prodrive package an loads of extras, cost him a small bomb.

he always said he would let me drive it one day but sold it a year later an didnt let me
drive it  :sad5: i swore from then on i would have one
and i was lucky enough to own my first STI by the age of 21.

im 23 now and have owned 3 subaru's already.. i love them,
its the noise that puts a smile on my face every morning  :wink:
drive it on!!

A guy on my road had one when I was in my teens,

I always loved the car. He had put a 2.5 engine in it and some other mods.
I drove the car once when he had it and it blew my mind at just how fast it was
and how it sounded then a few years later I bought the car off him and loved it ever since.
