The Subaru Impreza scoop, Part III

The Impreza STI with the large scoop will Nevah, Evah die! At least according to our regional modders that is. It has become a major trend with your neighbours up north to make almost every make or model of car out there into an Impreza scoop utilizing monster. Some with head shaking sheer lunacy, like the triple scooped new Proton Saga shown here, or some tastefully done ones. Actually, there are no tastefully done ones I've seen. Except for some earlier GC Imprezas, SF Foresters and other Scoobies that also utilise this scoop.

Yes I am limiting the scope of use for Scoobies only, but I'm quite the traditionalist. I do not usually agree with a Mercedes 190e running a Nissan RB26 engine (when you can stuff an AMG Mercedes V8 in it) or a Proton Satria using a B20 Honda VTEC engine (when you could stuff a...actually Proton does not have anything really decent to put inside), or a Perodua Kancil with a NISMO or a RALLIART (may the company rest in piece) sticker plastered on the sides of the car. Anyway, the picture above clearly states that people with Proton Sagas love Subarus. This is the second one I've posted here albeit the first was a 3 tiered scoop version. One should be proud of what one bought, and not be something else, even if it is a lowly Saga.

The industrious bloke above bought an RM38K Saga, spent around RM4K for the bodykit and paint, another RM2K for rims and tires, another RM2-3K for ICE and some other mods. You got to hand it to him an 'A' for effort if you can't hand him anything else. Maybe a blindfold would be good.

Then there is this car. This is very apt as Toyota owns a part of Subaru nowadays and this could be a prelude of the new AE86 that Toyota and Subaru aims to produce together. It shows a glimpse of what they could produce. Or not produce. Or I suppose part ownership of Subaru would make it a valid use of the Impreza scoop on a Toyota even if the car is already around 20 years old.
