Why the name MFortyFive? We came up with the name after this realization: "Subaru" is the Japanese name for a constellation of six stars called "Pleiades," which in different forms has made up Subaru's corporate logo for decades. The Pleiades constellation is part of a list of comet-like stars made by astronomer Charles Messier in the 18th Century. All of the astrological items on Messier's list are assigned and referred to as a specific number. Pleiades is known as Messier 45, or M45 - and that's the origin of our name and how it relates to the brand we love!
MFortyFive is a Subaru enthusiast brand founded by three friends who wanted to see higher quality within the car community. We strive to be more than "just another Instagram page," and we hold ourselves to a higher standard of car enthusiasts. We figured that others wouldn't create what we wanted, so we set out to do it ourselves!
