3rd Annual Subaru Mega Meet

This past weekend was a rough cold weekend for the ages. Most of the east coast was pummeled with snow, some of which almost made it to Florida… almost. It was especially cold for the New England Patriots, who saw their playoff dreams cut short for the third year straight, but I digress.

Despite the cold and wind, we made it out to the 3rd Annual Subaru Mega Meet, destination Tampa, Florida. Forecast was mid 40’s with 30 mph winds, putting the temperature with wind chill factor in the mid 20’s. Crazy.

The turn out was surprisingly strong given the weak Floridian cold tolerance, with the event coordinators putting the total number of Subarus at 976 (not including other vehicles: FR-S, Saab, etc). In between our vendor work and huddling for warmth we were able to make it around roughly half of the meet (sorry if we missed your car).

The range of Subaru’s was mixed, with mostly Imprezas, but there was a wide range of chassis and models. Among them was with Subaru Leone that we managed to capture as it rolled by.

We somehow didn’t take any pictures of our own booth and most of our booth vehicles (Chad we owe you that photoshoot). But you can be assured that next year we will try to get more coverage of the event!
