Sunset Hunting

It's always fun when you have a car that can go where you want to without having to worry what the road conditions will be like.  In most cases, when you're on the hunt for a killer shot of a Sunset, there's clouds in the area that are often the aftermath of rain that had fallen shortly before.  So if you're trying to find that perfect angle before the sun dips below the horizon and the colors have faded from the canvas clouds above it, a mud-ridden dirt road or a washed out gravel avenue can't get in your way.

This All-Wheel Drive that grants me the worry-free confidence to make it to the top of that slippery ridge in time to catch those colors at their peak is at the core of this car.  Last week, the star of the photo was the sunset I managed to find in northern Iowa... but the co-star was the Impreza 2.5 RS that got me there.

When I want to visit my fiance in the middle of a blizzard, when I need to get back into town on time when the wind is whipping other cars around on a rainsoaked highway, that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive isn't invincible... but it's pretty close.  Sure it's fun to go hooning around in an unplowed parking lot full of snow or to tear through mud like David Higgins, but the practical application is always what you appreciate the most, even if you don't realize it.
