I can't believe we don't have a SoCal sightings thread yet! Us Fozzy enthusiasts are so rare here that we need to acknowledge when we see each other. This shall be the place to do it :icon_wink:

Spotted twice:
Northridge, CA, 7:50pm
You: SG9 WRB FSXT slightly lowered with STi badges and a Subtle sticker. You were making a left turn from Balboa onto Roscoe. You gave me a big nod and smile, I waved back but not sure if you saw because there was a cop to my left, lol.
Me: Lowered SGM '04 FXT with yellow fogs.
Then spotted your car again in front of Rok N' Sushi next to the liquor store at 8:20pm on my way to the freeway. I decided to park next to you and grab some photos. Would have loved to talk to you but I think you were inside eating sushi and I couldn't stay long.

It's great to see another Forester enthusiast on the road and not just another old lady that happens to own a Forester. Hopefully more people post their sightings, photos or not. I know there are many other nice Fozzies spread around SoCal that need some acknowledgement from others who appreciate them just as much.


P.S. Excuse my extremely dirty car. 2 weeks since last wash and just came back from the snow up at Mt. Pinos.

Just picked up my 14 XT..down here in South Orange County, I'll be sure to post!
Congrats!! Yeah just let us know when you see another Fozzie that you think might be on here. A pic gives you bonus points but is not required, especially if you were driving when you spotted it.

I think I've occasionally seen that blue Sti looking Forester in the West Hollywood area on Crescent heights coming from the valley (or one that looks exactly like it).

Funny enough the other day I saw another silver 05 Forester XT exactly like mine at an intersection. It was a woman driving and I waved, she then CHASED ME DOWN while honking her horn and pulled up next to me in the parking lane (no she didn't want to race). I rolled down my window and said "nice car!". She replied, "can I ask you a question?"..of course I said SURE (preparing to give her my telephone number ;). She yelled "HOW IS YOUR GAS MILEAGE!". I told her "NOT GOOD!, around 17mpg" (I drive fast everywhere and have a long commute in stop and go traffic). She told me THANK YOU and that she was worried something was wrong with her car, then drove off.

I've had the car for about 6 months, that's the first time I've spoken to another Forester XT owner.

Hahaha, awesome!! I was thinking, if you knew about Subtle and had their sticker on your car, then you must know about sf.org. It was only a matter of time.

Hey, if you're not busy tonight, and if you're still in SoCal, there is a bi-monthly Subaru only meet going on at the Balboa Golf Course 9-11pm. I'll be there. More details here: SFV Subies Meet - every other Thursday @ 9pm in Encino - Socal Subaru Forum For SoCal Subaru Enthusiasts: SoCalSubies.com

Today, at the Subaru Pacific meet in Torrance. You were leaving in a dark grey looking (hard to tell exact color because poor lighting) 06-08 forester lowered with stock wheels, full window tint and an awesome sounding exhaust. Mine was the gold 04 forester xt in the parking lot. Nice car!! I wish we could have talked! I was talking to the LGT guy when you left.

Hey Jshaw6000, that was my car leaving Third Thursday! I actually was hanging around the parking lot for a while after the thing wrapped to see who would claim the foz, but we ended up leaving before you came out I guess! Nice looking car! That was the first TT I've been to at Subaru Pacific. Time to subscribe to this thread

I think I may have seen you hanging around my car. I was asking the Leggy guy about some of his mods and he got a little carried away telling me about his stuff.

If you're not busy next Tuesday there is a weekly Subaru meet at the In-N-Out (Costco) at Washington & Lincoln blvd. It's from 8-11pm. I'm there every week since I don't live too far. Rault18 may come out as well. It'd be nice if I was joined by more Fozzys!! :D

There aren't any Subaru specific meets in the South Bay area. I've never been but there used to be a huuuuge all-car meet called Supremacy Tuesday meet in Redondo but it was shut down 2 months ago because some hondas decided to burn out and the police said don't come back or else. That's why I like Subaru specific meets, no one can burn out :lol: and there aren't a bunch of young reckless civic drivers, haha
The only Subie specific meets I know of are in Culver City, Downey, Long Beach, Encino, and Rosemead. Try to make this Tuesday one if you can since it's the closest to you, even if you can't stay long. Cool people here and it's really accessible. If you want more details on the other meets just PM me.

Saturday, around 1:30pm, lowered black or dark grey with gold wheels SG9 FXT on Hwy 395 in Olancha heading North. I was going South in the gold SG5 FXT heading home from Bishop. I flashed my high beams but not sure if you noticed since you were behind a line of cars.
