Buddy's Subaru Impreza

A buddy of mine needed to borrow the Ranger to haul a load of firewood so we switched vehicles for a day. I gotta say, driving a little car makes me want a little commuter car. Anybody else ever think this? Almost anything feels like a race car compared to the ranger, especially if its a 5spd. This is his Subaru (aka the Scoob), a fairly basic 2010 Subaru Impreza:

A pic he took of my truck:


And my sister trying to get into EricRanger's current project, I think she is 5' 3":

That's how I feel when I get in my buddies Mazda6 V6 5spd. That thing hauls a**, it's a midsize though so it's not really a little car. When I get in my moms commuter Suzuki I feel like I am going to get quashed by anything bigger than an S10. It's terrifying to drive lol.

I had the same car but someone hit me head on at 30 and totaled it. Great little car tho. I can't beleive my father bought my sister one. I was shocked on how unsafe it was. No air bags nothing. Motor was blown tranny split. I feel much safer in my ranger. If I was offered a WRX I would ditch the truck in a heart beat. I love the truck but I have a sweet spot for subies

I have an 03 cavalier for a daily driver. it is nice having the best of both worlds, but when I don't get to drive my truck for a few weeks on end it really sucks.
