ok so here are the rules

1) count the Subaru's you see on a drive
2) go online and post this information on subaruforester.org
3) this number should be in a how many subbies you saw per mile format
4) dealerships do not count
5) car shows do not count
6) parked and driving cars count
7) include the country and state your diving in

so a example would be like this

" I saw 2 subbies per mile on a 50 mile drive in Washington USA"

(that would be 100 Subaru's lol)

i have often noticed a ton of subaru's on the road where i live (upstate NY). and i was thinking are there other places like this? i often see 6 - 10 subbies on a 30 mile drive

i wonder which state will have the largest postings of subbies

i have a feeling the further north the more there will be but we shall see lol

I can almost guarantee that Washington will have the most. Sounds like a fun game. I'll start tomorrow.

Counted 18 Subies on my 10 mile drive this morning, so 1.8 Subies per mile - among them a Baja and an STi who returned my wave (I only ever wave to modded Subies because the others seem mostly oblivious to such expressions of kinship).

Hmmm... I like the sound of this. I'm going to try this out on my drive down to Florida next week and see what I get on a per-state basis.

The counts for this area will be pretty small though, but I'll try it out on the drive home tonight.

I'd never be able to keep count, from the south towns of WNY to Buffalo everyday I see one about every 5 seconds...it's crazy, I never noticed till I had one just how many there are on the road, from really old to new.

Okay... on my block there are probably a dozen subarus. In my neighborhood, I'd say probably 30-50. I kid you not.

Foresters, Outbacks, Imprezas, Legacies, a couple of older Subarus I don't recognize, one svx, 2 bajas and 2 Tribecas.

I couldn't make this up if I tried.

Couple of weeks ago when the we got 2 feet of snow I ran out to the closest grocery store.

Saw three other vehicles on the way, non-Subie, but had to laugh when I parked at the grocery store itself.

Mine was the 6th subie parked all in a row (Foresters and Outbacks), with an Expedition and an old Blazer the next row over.

Only 3/4 of a mile to the store, so what's that, 8 per mile? But I disallow the score due to extenuating circumstances... but seein' all those Subies lined up was righteous.

My wife and I tried playing this game last summer whenever we'd gone to the mountains. We usually stopped counting in Boulder. There's no point to count there as the Outbacks, Legacys and Foresters are everywhere there :icon_rolleyes: They're all over the Boulder area and up in the foothills. One day we counted over 200 in one hour, going from Boulder through Nederland to Estes Park. We had to stop at 200 because it started to get annoying :raspberry:
Btw, my 4yr old now recognizes Subarus before we do :biggrin:

Gonna try this. Here in Mountaineer country I expect to get some decent numbers. I know I see way more than I ever saw in SoCal.
