    Subaru in the Dakar

    I was looking at the entry for the upcoming "DakArgentina" Rally, and noticed some Subie powered vehicles. I googled the teams expecting to find boxer-powered buggies, and found this instead.

    <object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TeVp9tmsvMk&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TeVp9tmsvMk&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>

    It is actually a Forrester, in that it started as a production body shell... It won't beat the Volkswagens, but cool all the same.

    Yea, it's a "forester", hate to burst your bubble. I see you already bursted your own bubble. Never mind.

    I guess it has the same A and B pillar, similarly shaped door skins and windshield.

    Yeah, clearly not a "Forrester" exactly. But it's not a tube chassis with body panels tacked on either. I see lots of conventional Subie parts all over it. Like, um, the tailights.... and uhh...

    Seriously, that appears to be a Subie diff, it's an EJ20, etc etc. Close enough to count. Closer than the Race Toureg is to an actual Toureg for example.
