How many licensed, running 1970's Subaru do you think are still on the road in the US? (Includes all BRATs and cars)_____________ (I say 60)
How many 1975-1979 BRATs and cars still licensed and running?_____________ (I say 50)
How many 70s Subarus do you think are still in Salvage yards across the US with "useable and serviceable parts?_____________ (I say 350)

I would also say that there are probably more licensed, running 1960's subaru's than 50 in the US. There's TONS of restored 360's I have seen on the web. I mean - they aren't terribly plentiful, but they do show up on ebay completely restored from time to time.

WagonsOnly has my former '75 that he NEEDS to get on the road.
No real guess on the nimbers.Infact I was thinking of the same type of post.It'll be interesting to find out.At least to us it will be.

Could you move this to the older generation? I goofed.
So far, It would seem that there are far more than I realized.

I just had to crush a '76 GF.Too bad,it just needed some welding and a place to stay.My advice if you're looking is to spend the money on transport and get one from the non rust zones.
Feel free to email me if you want to talk vintage.Cheers

I will get a pic of my 80 BRAT up sometime.
Well, it would appear that there are far more 70s then I thought! Although I still haven't counted 60 yet!! Lets keep the #s coming in.

I've asked many suppliers,etc up here and there really aren't any known 70's Subarus going except ours......but I'm sure there's an old lady out there somewhere still pushing a '7? around.

actually, I have only seen three gen1 subarus (all brats) and nothing earlier than that.
About the three gen1 brats, two of them were in a junkyard and the other looked like someone it dragged out of a junkyard.
I have not seen more than 20 EA81's, and this sounds weird, but almost all of them were brats:headbang:
EA82's and later are all over the place.

And Paul, please don't do that to my mom. It'll be another 5 years easy until I get my own place...and that means 5 years of Soobies that could have been saved, to the crusher:boohoo:

There are far more on the road than I realized! What is the attraction to older Subes in Montana? Alaska? Don't they rust fast in those places?
I be interested in learning more about those salvage yards in Montana too!
