    you listed your faves and nowhere did i see the B9 .. < shame shame .. runs to tell the powers that be that Juice no longer is the FIRST one on the list for the B9>
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Didn't really do anything for me. Saturn Curve and especially the Chevy Nomad were far more interesting concepts IMO.

    Elm: fit me like a glove. Unfortunately gloves are a little confining. ;-)

    Brenda - no fair, the B9SC did not debut at NAIAS so it was not on my list of "new" concepts.

    Looks like a cute Corolla coupe. I see a family resemblance to the new Lexus GS, even.

    Cute enough, inoffensive. Finally Scion makes a car that doesn't have the speedo way over there in the center.

    Look at the Fangs on the bottom of the front windshield:

    Ridiculous? Yep.

    Toyota has cool tall wagons already and doesn't need this silly concept.

    The only shot that matters in a Maybach:

    That's the stretch, of course. If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

    There is no room in my garage for that car... nor my pocket for that matter either.
  • nygregnygreg Posts: 1,936
    The "Smart" half car was all over Paris when I was there. Great for cities. The Scion looks like a Civic. The Maybach, well, for those who complain about legroom. Reminds me of intercontinental first class (sure that was the goal).

    Brenda, I think juice's "favorites" poll was favorites "besides" Subies. If Subies were included, then the B9 and Legacy would led my list too. :)

    I'll take any reason I can get to move up the list on the B9 ... I'm telling you .. it's for the "older women" .... with that "Bingo" name ...

    dang juice, they're never inviting YOU back to an autoshow. ;)

    Just shoot me now. :-O

    Neither the Legacy nor the B9SC were a true debut, that's all. Of course both impressed me, why do you think I took about 700 photos!

    Actually, I'm uploading a bunch more. Basically the rest of my pics that were not of the Legacy. So yes, lots of B9SC pics plus the rest of the stuff there.

    I just read the link from Bob Hollands note. Subaru plans to sell 203,000 cars in the US next year. My first Subaru was a 1995 Impreza and Subaru sales were 100,000 vehicles. I am still using the car as a daily driver and they are projecting sales to double from that level. Subaru has come a long way. 1995 was notible as the last year you could buy a FWD car from Subaru. Some people thought they were crazy to discontinue the FWD cars since they were about 50% of the 1995 sales, but you can't argue with the results!
      By the way that Impreza is by far the most reliable car I have ever owned. 9+ years and the only repair is a $30 sensor. I am even on the original brakes @ 85,000 miles.

    people here are really "dishing" on you. Did I use the correct terminology? Always wanted to say that...now back to my real age.

    Greg
  • bigelmbigelm Posts: 995
    if you're talking about people against what he said.

    ... and if you were referring to that 'terminology', that word has been played out for the longest, so you already revealed your age! LOL!

    Oh
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    "Dis" actually comes from disrespecting, but it does get pronounced "diss". Just keepin' it real. LOL

    Hey, I have thick skin, my Ego strength was #1 in a class of 400+ Psychology 101 students at U of MD. :o)

    Brenda just want the B9SC before I get it. So long as we don't have to enter a typing contest to see who wins it!

    I think Brenda can type out an order for a B9 faster than you. Complete with a set of tires and rims for the winter. And then drive it to the Indiana plant! Your sc___d.

    Don't give Subaru any ideas!

    I say they shoud hold a give-away contest that should be Subaru trivia related.

    You think the next Tundra will be less boring maybe? This was overdone but still hints at a far more aggressive Tundra in the future.

    For some reason I can't love this car. They just didn't sort out some details properly. It also stands in stark contrast to the squared off sedans, i.e. doesn't seem to belong in the lineup.

    Not as handsome as the concept, but still a step up from the unsorted current model. Front end has a family resemblence to the Scion tC, check them out back to back.

    You too can be cool and still have kids:

    Hummer H2 fighter from Jeep. They need it to keep that off road image alive. Hummer has stolen their fire, if you ask me.

    Never mind how ridiculous it is, they will sell every model they build at a huge profit.

    Check out the steel rims. The too-high door handles. I do like the little kinks in the B- and C-pillars, though, note they match the angle of the A-pillar. Family resemblence to the Wrangler, too.

    I normally don't voice my personal opinions about any make/model in the Town Hall, but I just can't resist on this one.

    Eww.

    Bruce: which car were you referring to? I've commented on so many of them.

    that booger-looking hummer. somebody get a tissue and wipe that off the screen, please. :-D

    i'd be embarrassed to say i knew someone who owned that particular over-utilitarian-under-used machine.

    blegh.
