The year was 2005. YouTube was founded, Dubya was elected to four more years in the White House, and I got my first cell phone — for emergencies only! Oh, and after 30 years of GM, my dad ditched domestic for a then-brand-new, fourth-generation Subaru Legacy.
The Legacy was always something of a secret handshake in a time when people didn’t think they automatically needed an SUV, offering four-season capability and better-than-usual driving dynamics and interior fit-and-finish, albeit in a somewhat plain-looking package, though I always thought it looked sharper than most other family sedans at the time.
