the dealer told me that the white/turbo/5spds were the rare combo -- that makes me feel even more unique! :D

8) Cliffhanger, I saw one like yours in Saratoga Springs, NY, about a month ago!
So how do you like yours?
If I had known about the 5-speed, I would have tried it out for comparison sake. Still, I like my Sport-shift, does the job for me.
Enjoy your Baja.
Keep it under 90, folks!

8) Cliffhanger, cool that you used to live in this area!
Just curious, are you a native of Saratoga Springs, or did you work/go to school there?
Yea, I DO know Broadway/Caroline/Phila St!
Enjoy your Baja, my friend!
Keep it under 90, folks!

Sales for March 2005 are at 615 .
On a side note I was at the New York Autoshow on Friday and they did not have a Baja on display . This is a shame what are they thinking ?? If you dont show it who will buy it ?? Honda had 3 Ridgelines on display ....

Let's see.. No commercials, none at the auto show.. I believe the writing is on the wall.

I have never seen the white, I bet it's handsome!

I did see an all silver one today! First time in over a month!
I saw an all blue with soft tonneau cover 2 days after I got mine in mid January.

Then, 2 in the same night within sight of each other... a red and silver and an all red.

Tim sees a Monterey Silver Brilliant Silver around the Peabody/Lynn, Mass. area. He's not sure if it's turbo, he forgot to look again... but it's an older guy driving it.

That's the total number I have seen other than the yellow one that used to live 2 blocks away... it either moved away or it's in storage. Oh, and Subafreak's black one last fall.

I live in a heavily populated, high traffic area. The most popular cars here are Subarus (Outback, Forester and WRX) and more Ford trucks than you can count!

My dad, brother, and nephew went to the Milwaukee Auto Show. Subaru had one of everything there, including a Baja. :lol: So I guess they show up sometimes. Now if they would only do commercials and other ads!! Mike

My baja is in for rutine service and I asked the service manager and he said that he got a offical letter from SOA that they have changed their minds and have slated the baja for production till at least 07 :D:D:D:D

Well, I just purchased one so I guess my numbers help them count on their April quotas!

Regal Blue (or whatever it is called), 5-speed, turbo.

I pick it up tomorrow! Can't wait!

:D
