    If wearing gore-tex hiking shoes is wrong, I don't want to be right.!

    I bought a Subaru one time years ago. I must have lost my mind because what I traded in was an Electra 225 but it was when gas was going up. I only drove it up and down Main St. in Gainesville which was also a mistake. Once I got it out on the Interstate top speed was about 62 MPH. Think I kept it less than a month.

    You just bought the wrong model...or it was many, many years ago. I don't care for the WRX, but I can't deny it's a very fast car for not a lot of money.

    WRX STi
    305 hp
    0-60 in 4.7 seconds

    Top speed is limited to 155

    Yeah the WRX will roll but this was years ago. Probably around 74.

    That is an awesome video... but, he needs a dash-cam in the middle of the dashboard. That's the view I want to see. Thanks for posting this, fastsix.

    I read that same study Lacuna and if I recall correctly, it did not matter at all what the bumper stickers said: Virginia is for Lovers, Give War a Chance, or Keep your laws off my body, the mere fact that the owners chose to place messages on their cars indicated they were more likely to engage in road rage than those without bumper stickers.

    I don't have any bumper stickers but I do curse (under my breath) the driving idiots in very vile language

    EDIT: See you found the study. I was unable to and was relying on memory.

    Rainbows and deck shoes. There is no other footwear for me unless I'm at the gym.

    Thanky. I always found that lyric to be ...thought provoking, if not loaded--and Lacuna's mention of using berk's and that she owned a caddy....figured may as well slap a deadhead sticker on it. I think today's equivalent, would be like a Ford Prius with a 'drill baby drill' sticker on it. :grin:
