Summer is here in full force, and if you’re a spoiled Californian (like us) that means beach weather, barbecues, and bug eyes. And other WRX. And Foresters, Outbacks, Legacy, BRZ – wait, we’re not just talking about summer anymore. We’re talking about one of the best parts of the hot and humid season, the Subaru Summer Solstice (S3)!
Back for a seventh year in 2015, S3 returned to Hueneme (pronounced “wahy-nee-mee”) Beach Park where the free event got its start after stints at the LA harbor and Long Beach in previous years. The mix was the same as in former iterations: car show, raffle, contests, vendors and food trucks. It seemed clear to us, though, there was probably a legit reason why the event moved in the first place; cars were packed into two relatively small parking lots, and conditions were pretty cramped to say the least.
That didn’t stop us from having a good time, although we did have to squeeze past more than a few Subies. Obviously there were WRX and WRX STI galore, with other models sprinkled in for good measure, everything from race car and offroad builds to some seriously over-the-top stanced widebody creations. Get into the gallery to see what Subaru Summer Solstice 2015 had to offer.
