I drove one of those wedge thingies that Subaru made with the flat six
and was really suprised. It's not a bad car. The biggest joke with
that, the SVX, and even the WRX is the lack of a manual transmission.
How can you make a car like SVX and WRX with automatic only??? That's
worse than the new V8 SHO.
