Hey guys,

I stay in the Randpark Ridge area, and I see fozzies and legacy's quite often - don't really see Impreza's ....

I always greet them, especially the fozzie guys - but they never greet back :P

Do they think im some young punk haha? I'd like to hear what the Foz guys think of this :)

Any ways take care!

I often try and greet the other Foresters on the road, but seems most people just look straight ahead! On the odd occasion they do greet back, might be cause I started flashing them :P

Mine just laughs at me cause no one waves back... she has asked me quite a few times if it is worth it, will continue greeting even if no one greets back :)

A lot of old people drive Foresters.
They don't greet cause they can't see you.


I greet any Scooby driver, they just look at me as if I'm nuts.

I try to greet when possible.
But some people really gives you some strange looks.

Worst looks though was end last year - I kept on forgetting that Foz drivers would not understand why I wave at them whilst driving our company Hyundai Sonata when my car was being fixed.

He probably thought the sun was setting.


I pass a guy every now and again, S-Edition, WRB.
Looks like he has his teeth embedded in the dash cause he cant see scheit.
Like trying to plant your face on the winscreen is going to help you see further.

On the flip side, some dude in a FXT followed me down Durban Road, all the way to the Durbanville McDonald's the other day. I assumed he was a forum member, but I had one hand on the .357 just in case.

I've never had a fozzie owner greet back, although I always wave. That being said, plenty of Impreza drivers wave back, a couple even hoot or flash hazards.

WRX owners love to greet. Forester XT SG owners too. Very little SH owners greet as they are maybe a little older and not as enthusiastic about the vehicle. I flash everybody :D :D :D

Like Steve says, the SG owners greet more.


Majority of the SH owners are not that passionate about their Foz.
It's a car thats takes them from A to B.


So SG guys, be grateful when an SH owner greets back   ;D
