History
My Forester is no longer the cross-over SUV you see the lesbian down the street driving. This is a prepped autocross wagon and it's a sleeper for sure.

I am the second owner, purchased indirectly from a buddy of mine, who sold it to buy his FJ. The Forester is primarily my car, whereas the FJ is primarily my wife's (I know, I know).

My previous Forester, a 1999 L, saw duty in the mud and random logging trails I could find, but was obviously no off-road machine like the FJ. When my old Forester had one wheel in the air, it was on dirt. When my new Forester has a wheel in the air, it's from a sharp turn.
