You must not be very old . That is a Suburu Brat. They originally made them in the 70's (they were somewhat popular for some strange reason) and some brilliant person thought they would jump on the retro bandwagon and bring it back out a few years ago. I think you spotted one of ten that were sold during the remake .

That's no Brat; it's a Baja.

Brats were a blast to drive. The Baja was just like a Forester --- sorta boring.

I like it! It's no different in concept from the AMC Eagle, it's all wheel drive and has decent ground clearance for light off roading. My great Uncle drove the station wagon Eagle for many years in the Hills of PA, he'd drive it through rivers and water would be over the hood. Those subaru's were decent off road and quite capable as long as it wasn't a ground clearance issue.

My last 8 cars were Subaru’s and all I can say is WOW! This individual has this thing set up like he’s hitting the Rubicon after he leaves Costco. My opinion is that Subaru’s are way more reliable but they can’t go to half the places a Wrangler can. I think this Baja is a little over done.

We wheeled with a friend in his Eagle recently; it was a hoot. It took a bit of spotting and patience.

Subies can go more places than you'd think. I wouldn't own one but I have nothing against their owners.
Takes all kinds to make the world go round.

^Depending on the area, they may experience a lot of floods or drive through rivers. Or even have a spare set of tires.

Kinda like a garden gnome? Hmm...

If I had to choose (suddenly found myself in Hell), I think I'd go with the gnome.

Front wheel drive, see the shaft going straight up and down to the front axle? I bet that's It.

There's not a shaft connected to the front axle.

That Subi looks like an attack hamster.

I have driven rental Impreza and was favorably impressed as a cheap, small car. The WRX is a great little car.

Sadly, around here, all you see are Foresters and Outbacks and I hate them. Rented one once on a trip to Yellowstone and it damn near got stock on grass and gravel by the side of the road. It was too slow to pass anything and had to drive behind the motorhomes and trailers. My wife and I were wishing we had our Grand Cherokee all the time we were driving the Forrester. We took to calling it "Hiro Hito's Revenge".

The ones around here are ubiquitous and generally driven by aging Boomer ex Hippies and covered on stickers for various lib causes and political candidates. Their usual speed is 30 MPH in a 55 MPH zone and they brake for 45 MPH corners. They would be the bane of my Ducati when I'm out riding, but passing them is usually so effortless as not to matter. They must have a club and schedule outings to events like recycling gay whale conventions.

I have left explicit instructions with my wife that in the event I ever mention acquiring one to have a stat testosterone level drawn.
