Lottery Winner Actually Wants To Buy A Subaru Forester

Car WTFs

Mike Krumrei is an accomplished writer, former journalist and participation trophy recipient. Despite not driving a vehicle for several years, his theoretical knowledge of the practice allows for a more fluid discussion of the finer points of almost any vehicle including cup holders and vanity mirrors. During his brief driving career, the first car he was in that started on fire was a 1990 Ford Taurus.

If you aren’t independently wealthy or don’t have parents that discovered some huge money making venture, then you have probably dreamed about winning the lottery. A woman from Washington state, Lisa Quam hit a $90 million Powerball jackpot this week. She even mentioned in a Reuters article that she plans to buy a brand new car with her windfall. So what is she getting? A Mercedes-Benz SLS Class? Maybe some supercharged Italian land rocket? Nope. Quam plans on taking home a brand new, high performance…Subaru Forester. What. The. Blue. Fuck? Shakespeare may have told us there are no small actors in life, but some people have small dreams.

At the risk of sounding like a pissy automotive blogger, I have to say, who in the hell dreams of dropping their giant pile of money on a fucking boring sensible Subaru Forester? The article also states she quit her job at Boeing, so she has at least some sense. But, again, is there anyone with posters of a Subaru vehicle on their bedroom wall just wishing for the wonderful day when they can bring home a Forester? Jesus, switch to store brand cheese and, poof, you will magically have enough money to live your ultimate dream.

CarDebater staff was on hand for the unveiling of some 2015 Subaru sedan at the Chicago Auto Show last winter and the guy was basically out of shits to give about his product.

I don’t even know how to finish this blog. People are a curious lot to begin with, but there has to be a better automobile to dream for than a Subaru. I think doctors actually give insomniacs Subarus to drive when they don’t respond to opiates.
