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.
