So, eleventeen or so people "sponsored" youse guys so you can bring your cars on base? I'm not sure I follow!Anyway, what's that crappy Vibe doing among all those great Subarus? Er, maybe not so great the one who lost all of his wheel covers...!

my Vibe is far from being crappy but I did feel out of place driving it with all those other great cars around. But my friend Justin with his grey WRX and steel rims didn't lose what he never put on. He's never had hubcaps on there.

ya, it was fun, we got out to an empty air strip and had a little fun. phil got to do donuts in his car and i got to do mine to get it out of my system. went around some of the corners sideways, but not too much since the last time i screwed around, i ate the ditch (in the old Vibe GT doing ebrake slides). my car is completely different, so i need to get used to it now.

at one point I thought we had crossed the border back into canada we were so out into nowhere.Yeah my car stands out and thanks, it was the nicest looking one out there and the slowest...Sure the new subaru look isn't the best but its grown on me. I'd be content to drive one.

You said "I do it all the time", being you get people on base, or people get you on base? Are you a retired military members dependent or something? Even if so there is an age limit and you have to be enrolled as a full time student to maintain eligibility for a dependant ID card.

Even if so there is an age limit and you have to be enrolled as a full time student to maintain eligibility for a dependant ID card.I go on base all the time with a sponsor. yes, i USED to be a military dependant, both my ex husband and my father who was in the AF for 28 yrs. yes, i do know there is an age limitation and i am well over that. i understand how the military works, i grew up in it til i was 22 yrs old. i DID not want to go that route and therefore politely turned down the AF academy's offer... no thank you, i'll find my own way. i have many customers on the AF base, not so much anymore but that will soon change. and here, you can sponsor an event and sign people on with their vehicles if you are there at the front gate meeting them all.
