In Taos, the Subaru Forester is the preferred car of Gay women and Tree Hugging Liberal Vegetarian men. So, it has a stigma attached. An oft heard insult here is "Go home and polish your Subaru!". LOL!
Still a great car and I would love to own one. It is the modern equivalent of the old Volvo.
They've tried to take the month of June, the rainbow, (sign of God's Covenant), and more. I have enough confidence in my masculinity to drive a Subaru if I want to. That said, my wife says that she loves her 2012 Scion XB too much to ever give it up. Maybe I'll rent one someday.
Not me! I have my public to think of. All those irrigators who depend upon me showing up. I would have to switch to wearing a fringe bikini and Birkenstocks.
