Manny’s Subaru STi (The Space Shuttle)


Seeing how I featured an Evo about a month back, its only fair to feature a Subie next, don’t you think? Subie owners and Evo owners are always competitive…which is good. Because without competition, how can we better ourselves? Anyways, I introduce to you Manny and his Space Shuttle. A friend of his named it the Space Shuttle because of all the lights and sounds that go off when this thing launches. “The shift light starts beeping, the intake goes crazy, the exhaust is loud and you hear the turbo screaming”. Seems like a good description to me! As someone thats ridden in the car…yea, it does get pretty crazy, the guy in the pilot seat probably adds to it too, you can tell by the maniacal grin he has when hes driving. On the day of this photoshoot (1/16/2013), Manny is preparing for a cross-country drive to Texas for training. He actually went through all elements to get there, snow, rain, ice, sleet and sun and the car made it there with no problems (NOVA however got no snow..not even a flake). If a space shuttle can enter the earth atmosphere, then elements on the earth should be no trouble. See you soon Manny!
