    Is this where "The official 'spotted' thread" used to be?

    I wanted to add:

    Silver STI '03-'05, in a Taco Bell TV commercial, pulled up alongside the 'good to go' guy's 60s-vintage Valiant or something, to admire his grilled whateverthehell.

    The official 'spotted' thread?

    Not to be a Jerk but I'm pretty sure the other car was an Impala. Sorry to be rude and I mean no offense. LOL :D

    The official 'spotted' thread?

    You are WRONG, jerk! :lol: <- just teasin' ya back!

    Seriously, though, I know my Impalas pretty well, and the only Impala that even looked SIMILAR to that car was the '66. But the '66 Impala had four headlights, and I'm pretty sure the car in the commercial only had two. And it was considerably smaller than an Impala, from what I could tell.

    I have very little confidence in my claim that it was "a Valiant or something", but if that was an Impala, I will give you a crispy $10 bill.

    Yeah that was me. I seen you in back of me hoping you'd pass. Course I was going slow enough.

    Nice car, pretty much what I am going to do. Prodrives are in the mail. ERZ catback and Helix DP so I can get off Stage 1 if Docspoolin gets off his arse and sells it to me. Otherwise I'll prolly buy one off Ebay here real soon and debadging the back.

    Then this spring get some summer wheels.

    Did not mean to cut back in front of you right away but I could tell you were waiting for me to pass, plus I wanted to see who was driving that car. I like the ERZ it sounds nice to me, I have up and down yet to be installed. The prodrives came on the car. Hope to see you at firestone sometime.

    yeah, an undisclosed source told me this happens a lot in Edina. I have never had any issues in EP. This same person told me I should have no trouble getting the fine waived if I would go to court. I know I was wrong and will put a plate up front, but the police officer was rude, would not answer any questions OR give me a warning. I'm sure though he was just trying to make quota...after all, it was the 31st. lol

    Heh don't worry about it. How is the ERZ at highway speed? Sounded nice when you sped up to get in front of me. But does it drone?

    I'll stay out of edina... not that I'm ever really there anyways.

    The rusty bolts thing wont work for me. My plan is to say, well do YOU see anywhere to mount this thing on my bumper?

    Then I'll get dragge out of the car beat down and have it crushed and melted.


    Back on topic, I saw the Black STi with the gold SWRT stuff actualyl driving down lexington in eagan yesterday but alas my cosmic blue matrix was not enough to get his attention.

    Not sure what you mean by drone, but I drive it 3 hours up norht to the future inlaws place and it does not bother me a bit. It sounds good all around, idle, under power and at cruising speeds. Swing up to firestone this friday and I will take you for a ride so you can hear it.

    Saw a siver WRX pulled over on hwy 100 south at about noon today.
    Saw a blue bugeye on hwy 100 north today between 3 and 3:30.

    Well at highway speeds it will just have a constant 'drone' sound in the cabin. Almost like when an exhaust pipe has a leak. Some exhausts have this.

    it is tough to say, you always hear it but, that is how it is designed. If you turn the radio on at a resonable level you can not hear it anymore.

    I do not make it there often, but my fiance is going out of town for the weekend so I will be down there this friday. Hopefully planning the wedding does not get in the way of all my fun this spring/summer.

    Hey, I did, but you were on the phone and gave the "thumbs up" like you had it under control. (That was me in the big blue Caprice, so you prolly didn't recognize me).
