Just curious, since most people on here own several subarus, and many of them are "project vehicles".....

How many subarus do you currently own that run and move under their own power?

And,

How many subarus do you currenlty own that do not run or otherwise cannot move under their own power?



I'll start...amazingly, both of mine run!

4 for 4...

the '84 runs and moves, but I wouldn't drive it too far... the chain from the trailer broke the bolts on one side of the moustache bar, and stopping is a little tricky with no brake lines :(

Wife's 94 Legacy - Running Great
My 88 RX - Running Great
Project Cheap 86 Lifted Sedan - Running good, drove it today in the snow and -5 degree weather on the way to work.
88 DL Sedan - Not running at all, but this is just a parts car for Project Cheap, it did run before I parked it.

so 3 out 4.

1 '91 XT6. Runs poorly lately, drives great if not for the running issue. See my woes here on XT6.net.

4 running ('91 T-Leg, '87 RX, '98 GL Wagon, '90 Loyal Sedan)
1 not ('86 turbo coupe, parts)

But I've only been doin the Subaru thing for a few years, dont even ask about my old VWs, been doin them for a long time, currently I think I've got 1 running, 6 not and 2 sheds full of parts. Current total of all vehicles on the property is 10 running, 10 not.

I have 4, they all run... however....

the 85 twagon has an almost two piece driveshaft, so it doesn't get driven (it does run!)
85 carbed wagon... no title for it yet... but it runs!

the 88 GL and 91 Loyale are daily drivers.
