    Mike,
    I read a post over on NASIOC that made it sound like the SOA folks thought you guys actually worked for Edmunds and that's what got you so close to the STi. I think it's the last post in this thread...

    p.s. I guess being group moderators here has already provided some perks! LOL!

    Bob and Juice were "creative" in how they presented us, and Hypov and I just went along with it :)

    Sounds like a great plan...let the marketing guy do the talking!! LOL!

    That's what I thought, too, but Bob insisted that he didn't present us as being anyone special.

    You think he noticed the Subaru logo on my shirt and both our Subaru hats, though? ;-)

    They probably did think we were employees of some sort.

    Disclaimer:
    At no point did we purport or claimed to work for Edmunds. The rep merely misunderstood.

    For the record, we were well behaved. We didn't drool all over the engine or interior. ;-)

    True, but I had to use a bib! :-)

    Juice,
    I thought I saw dribbles on that nice blue vest!
  • I loved that post over on NASIOC about you guys at the Baltimore show. Makes me wish I was on the east coast.

    Technically, we are "Community Leaders" here on Edmunds.com. And we're Crew Chiefs of the Subaru Crew. Not that we're paid or anything.

    Wait a sec - I gotta renegotiate the contract. :-)

    Ah, my '98 OBW Limited has the AWP without the LSD <grin>. -15 again this morning. The heated leather driver's seat makes cold weather bearable on the drive to the ski area. -27 wind chill temp at the ski area.

    It depends on how you define "rep." ;)

    One ticket to autoshow: $10
    Food & Drink at autoshow: $10

    Getting to see the STi up-close while the general public watches (irregardless of 'representation'): priceless

    Yeah, it made our day.

    It's funny, I go to both the Baltimore and Washington cars shows. Baltimore is often thought of as a blue-collar town, as well as Washington's sometimes forgotten step-child. However, when it comes to car shows, the Baltimore show is so much better than the Washington show.

    It really is a matter of timing. The Washington show is right after Christmas, but before the Detroit or LA shows. It is the "last" of last year's shows, whereas the Baltimore show follows the Detroit and LA shows by a couple of weeks, thereby allowing some of he new vehicles that were announced at those shows to appear at Baltimore. That couldn't have been more true than in the case of this year's Baltimore show.

    DC gets last year's left-overs.

    Baltimore at least gets a few of the new debuts from Detriot, just a few weeks later. They had lots of cars I had not seen before, and that's great considering I'd been to the NY Auto Show in April of last year.

    Still, I was bummed that they did not show the new Quest or Sienna, but then again we did see the F150 and Titan.

    The only new car at the DC show (of any interest to me) was the Honda Element and 4Runner V6. There may have been a few other new models, but if there were, they were models dues shortly for release, as was the case with the Element and 4Runner V6.

    Not so for Baltimore. Besides what you mentioned, there were the Subies, Chevy Malabu and cladding-free Avalanche, new Caddys, Maxima, GMC XUV, '04 Grand Cherokee, FX45 Infiniti, as well as a few others that currently escape my memory.

    Element had arrived in dealers by then, no? So DC had almost nothing new to offer.

    Baltimore also had the Endeavor and the New Beetle Cabrio. That's a good dozen or more debuts for the Mid-Atlantic region.

    Plus there were some models that were open for the first time, so you could crawl inside.
