we have 2. One runs, and the other can move under it's own power, but hardly :-) I guess I have 1 and a half that runs, half of one that doesn't.

Both run/drive just fine. Surfer kids around town love the 82 GL wagon.......cuz they can tell by looking at it that it is older than they are.:)

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?


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!

my brat runs great but I'm going to sell it, tell a friend :lol:

91 Legacy - Running, but at this second has no front control arms. This will be remedied this evening.

93 Legacy - Currently driving it, but needs wheel bearings really bad.

88 XT - Will start, but barely (dying battery). Air suspension also in dire need of attention.

79 GL - Not running, might be soon, then again, might not be :(

I'll get in on it.

I have Six now.

94 SVX runs... needs some minor work.. damn expensive
91 Loyale Freebie.. somethings wrong with it, but it runs and drives... but not for long if the problem doesn't get fixed.. it's down on the list a little bit.
89 XT6 runs strong.. causes back injury to drive. (no air in the air susp)
88 RX ran great until I caught it on fire.. workin' on it though.
86 T-Coupe (RX without the body kit or Full-time. still D/R w/ rear LSD tho) Freebie, drastic engine problems... water comes out of everywhere. Might end up using tranny etc on ---
84 Brat kinda runs but is leaking water into the passenger side valve area.. which in turn becomes steam and steam in the system is bad, mmmkay? May use 86 as donor "beef up the Brat" project.

'81 Brat. Runs flawlessly

'83 Brat. Runs but is rotting and extremely rough. Farm hack, not legal.
