Road Tests

The test drive wish list

The search is now over. We settled on the Subaru Imprezza WRX. Pretty in Blue, to misquote the film title. Now it's my turn... The reviews below are from 2002 / 2003. Many of these cars have changed but some are still available new, and of course they will be available second hand for many years to come.

My List!

Well, when we say the search is over, it's over for my wife. Now we just have to think about my replacement car. Again, it has to have a stick, no slush boxes here. But the car testing may be set aside for further motorcycles, too.

Audi S4
Chevrolet Corvette
Ford Ford Mustang GT/Cobra
Lotus Elise (fat chance of getting in it)
