#33610 of 34261 RIP Carroll Shelby

Just found out.
I met him in 2006 at the NY Auto Show, and he even signed a press kit for me for the GT350. He was very controversial but that's the type of person who pushes the envelope and leaves a lasting legacy in automobile-dome.

Can anyone tell me (or tell me where to look online) if a fully assembled bicycle will fit inside a 2011 Subaru Impreza hatchback. Has to fit with the front wheel attached.

depends on the bike and the size, but I've done it with mountain bikes for sure. Just need to drop the back seats.

It will fully depend on the size and type of bike. I have the 2012 Impreza (5 inches longer with seats down). My 19inch frame size and 29er wheels on the mountain bike just barely fit. Its much easer with the front wheel off. It will not stand upright (front wheel off). A more traditional 26" wheel sized mountain bike would probably fit with the wheels on, but still be close. Best bet is to try it.
#33615 of 34261 Outback vs. Forester

I am going to buy either a 2010 Outback or Forester. Other than cargo dimensions, what are the major differences between the two?

Transmission - most Foresters have a 4 speed auto, while the 4 cylinder Outbacks get a CVT. Both offer manuals, 5 speed for Forester, 6 for Outback.
I think the feel of that alone will help you choose.

The Forester will not lean as much as the Outback in turns and the ride quality is at least as good. The Forester has 1/4 inch more fore and aft seating room and 1/4 inch less seating width. Wind noise seems greater in the Forester. I'm not sure whether the 2010 Outback got folding mirrors like the Forester.
The four speed is fine in the Forester XT turbo and ok in the non turbo model. The CVT whine in the Outback is quite noticeable.
