Having attended the Subaru Summer Solstice event a few weeks ago, I noticed some similarities between the two events. Mostly populated by WRX and STI models, I didn't see too many hoods being popped at SSS, and the same was true at MOD. Whether it was a lack of mods or perhaps an attempt to keep things under wraps and avoid the wrong type of attention, it's something that I couldn't help but wonder about. Also in common was the very relaxed vibe at both events. Though the Subaru crowd seemed a bit more interactive, both get-togethers were packed with friendly, outgoing people that seemed like genuine enthusiasts and I didn't witness any bad attitudes. In fact, I was a little surprised at how nice people were, often times walking around me when I crouched down to take a photo or just asking how I was enjoying the show.
While making my way through the parking lot at Mitsubishi Motors North Amaerica in Cypress, Calif., I took note of many EVO that had deleted their back seats entirely. It was widespread, whether the car had a roll bar/cage or not. Plenty of Volk Racing wheels, many of which were draped in wild colors, carbon bits and aggressive aero were on hand and though it seemed as if it was an all EVO event, the Starions, Eclipses and 3000GTs broke things up nicely.
If you're a Mitsubishi fan and haven't made your way to this event, you're definitely missing out. Log on to: mitsubishicars.com > owners > events for information on the next one.
