Page 18 in the new C&D issue has a cool article about Subaru! It is about one of the writers/reviewers who LOVES his Escalade, but gets tired of repair bills so he trades it in for a 2010 Forester and loves it!

My favorite quote is "If Henry Ford was still alive, he'd be building Subarus."

Anyone else see the article?

He is a very "interesting" writer sometimes, but it was nice to see someone say what we all here know!

LoL I agree, wait till the HG blows ;) it should be good fallow up to that comment hahaahahahahha ;)

To be honest I agree that driving a forester even the n/a is a true joy. I love the way the car handles, and behaves on the road.

I got an unsolicited free subscription too. Never figured out why. And it wasn't a scam that will automatically renew with my credit card.

Take note of the fact there there always seems to be a 20% Harbor Freight coupon in the last few pages! (I've also seen them in Smithsonian and AARP!)

CD subscriber since 1966....

I have continuously subscribed to CD since I was 14 years old and I am almost 58 right now. It used to be my favorite car magazine; maybe it still is but I no longer wait in anticipation for new issues.

I used to idolize DED back in the 60's and I seriously wanted to be an automotive journalist. I remember the old Boss Wagon exploits, his "Pig of Bronze" Jeep CJ, etc...

But it seems like he ended up getting pretty darn full of himself, starting Automobile magazine (pretty pictures, very little automotive content) after a stint at Cambell Ewald advertising. They just offered me 3 years of Automobile for $18, with a couple free gifts included. I tossed the offer in the trash. I've subscribed to Automobile for periods of time and always had an easy time putting piles of them in the recycle bin.

It seems like his Foz is his "antidote car" after the years he just spent telling the world that his Escalade ESV was the best vehicle he's ever owned until he started facing repair bills. There is NO real car freak that I know that would consider driving an Escalade, let alone telling the world that it is the "best" car...especially after a lifetime of owning *real* cars.

..."Pig of Bronze"...
Now, there's a phrase I've not heard in a very long time... :tissue:

i really liked Road & Track better than C&D in my youth but some of their long-time guys retired and i lost desire to keep getting it after that ... Innes Ireland and Phil Hill were 2 names I remember.
