Default FOTM February 2012 - "Non-Foz Showdown"

So it's that month that quite a few of you really look forward to!
This month's theme is...

February: "Non-Foz Showdown"
- for those excluded from other months



This month is for those who have something in the driveway that isn't a Forester. Some of you may already have shots like this while others may need to go pull the car out of storage. If your Forester shares the spotlight at your house with something other than another Forester, then this is your chance to enter!
This contest usually comes down the best photograph, so show your best shot for the best chance of winning. However, the winner of this month's FOTM will be excluded from the Forester of the Year (FOTY) voting next January.


Same rules as always:

-Photos must be in hosted format and embedded in your post
-No more than 4 photo's per entrant
-Polls will begin when we get 10 entries or February 20th, whichever happens first.

THIS YEAR'S WINNERS:
January - FXTSPORTS08
February -
March -
April -
May -
June -
July -
August -
September -
October -
November -
December -




For those future planners (upcoming topics):

March:
- "Snowball Fight"
- show your Forester out in the snow
April:
- "April Showers bring Mud"
- get down and dirty, spring is here
May:
- "Life in the City"
- show your Forester downtown, in a back alley, or at the abandonned shoe factory
June:
- "Professional Driver on a Closed Course"
- autoX and lapping photos of your Forester, any form of racing can enter as long as it's off the streets
July:
- "Road Work Ahead"
- show your Forester amongst the traffic cones or surrounded by construction equipment
August:
- "Get it wet"
- show your Forester at the beach, lake, river, or just out with the kayaks or being washed
September:
- "Put your back into it"
- show your Forester towing or hauling
October:
- "At home in the wild"
- show your Forester out in the forest/woods/trails/off-road
November:
- "Turning a new Leaf"
- Seasonal/fall foliage
December:
- "Holiday Cheer"
- seasonal themed photos, ANY holiday applies

Oh Oh Oh... My rally/weekday car is practically doing backflips for this month..

1998 Impreza GF wagon, including DIY flaps, HomeDepot Lip, painted 5-spokes, 2008 Foz catback, WRX rear swaybar, and 2008 2.5i Wagon suspension upgrade

Ready to go;





Before flaps;





I'm planning on running some practice rallies in the next week or so, I will be sure to take a camera and get some real working shots before the voting starts..

Now are we talking about PAST cars included or just the cars that are still in the garage/driveway with the Forester ?

Cars you presently own are preferred, but if you had something pretty sweet before your Forester I don't think I'd object to the entry.

I'll share some pics I don't think most of you have seen before.

We're a 2 Subaru family, so this is our 2011 Legacy 3.6R Limited that shares the garage with the Forester. Nothing crazy; OZ (Summer) wheels with Yokohama tires (stock size because I got a great deal), tinted windows, upgraded stereo (Kenwood) with amp and subs (all JL Audio), Viper alarm with remote start, K&N filter, and Optima battery.

This is really like a luxury car for us, especially compared to the Forester. We are not engine modding or lowering it as everyone keeps asking.
