Subaru GT

Well, no race here, but today, a business partner came by my office to pick up some items. He was driving a Subaru GT wagon. I always like the look of those, and I thought they may be some competition for the 5. So I asked for a demo ride.... he gave me the keys.

Ok, I didn't ralize how obnoxious I must've sounded, but I asked him if there were some Valet button or something that was left on.....

1st gear pulled pretty hard, but 2nd seemed like forever to get to 100kph. It's actually not bad if the engine is already spinning and you nail it.

Nice ride. Never liked the performance of the vehicle. Sometimes it pulls hard and then other times you are wondering where did the power go.
