    It has been several years since we last ran a contest on here. I think with everything going on now, people could really use a Subaru related distraction. This one will be focused on our members! Who wants in?

    This seems backwards, but also hilarious.

    I’ll leave this open for a day or two and see if we get any more hand raisers that want to play.At that point I will outline the game.

    I think it's safe to say we all want to play. I'm picturing you being the teacher and we're all just throwing paper airplanes and causing a ruckus before you walk in for class.

    Okay, here's how it's going to go. Below you will notice ten questions all centered on your Subaru ownership experience. Send me your answers in a PM! I will formulate the contest questions based on those collective answers. The actual quiz questions could be multiple-choice, true/false, or just questions that need to be straight up answered. Your answers need to be posted within the thread by the deadline set for each question. My goal is to have a fresh question up daily for ten days. I will reveal the correct answer at the end of each question deadline. I'm not sure what the winner will get...yet. Here goes:
    1. How many Subarus have you owned? (Parts cars can be counted)
    2. Your favorite Subaru sedan or wagon of all time? (year/model/trim level)
    3. Favorite Subaru coupe? (other than the 22B)
    4. Have you ever pulled/installed a Subaru motor, transmission, or differential? If yes, which?
    5. Have you ever pulled Subaru parts from a junkyard?
    6. The number of dogs in your immediate household? The number of children you have (any age, in or out of the house)?
    7. Prefer wagons? Prefer sedans? Prefer coupes?
    8. How old were you when you leased/inherited/owned/stole your first Subaru?
    9. Favorite Subaru color of all-time excluding WRB.
    10. What is the age of your current Subaru? (average age if you currently have more than one)
    Questions? Get your questions answered and turned in by Sunday evening at 7 as the game begins on Monday. nametags.jpg

    1. How many Subarus have you owned? (Parts cars can be counted) I stopped counting at 28.
    2. Your favorite Subaru sedan or wagon of all time? (year/model/trim level) 2001 RS from CA with STi suspension and WRX brakes.
    3. Favorite Subaru coupe? (other than the 22B) 1980 Hatchback with 498k miles. My first Subaru.
    4. Have you ever pulled/installed a Subaru motor, transmission, or differential? If yes, which? Yes, yes and yes. Engine swap this weekend.
    5. Have you ever pulled Subaru parts from a junkyard? Of course. Even brought the wife. I had her cutting brake lines to pull struts. She said, "I feel like such a criminal."
    6. The number of dogs in your immediate household? 1, purchased used (rescued). The number of children you have (any age, in or out of the house)? 3
    7. Prefer wagons? Prefer sedans? Prefer coupes? Any of them. The wife wants an Assent. That's just a large wagon, right?
    8. How old were you when you leased/inherited/owned/stole your first Subaru? 25? But that was over 27 years ago...
    9. Favorite Subaru color of all-time excluding WRB. ??? is that possible? BRP
    10. What is the age of your current Subaru? (average age if you currently have more than one). (1994+2001+2000+2001+1998=2002)/7 = 1999.5

    Todd, you do not have a Subaru problem my friend. You have a reading problem. I asked for these answers to be sent in a private message. I’ll make it work… Thanks for playing.

    Maybe give it a couple more days. People "working from home" may be more likely to browse the forum during the week.

    It seems like it. But with a 3 year old, [almost] 1 month old, 50+ year old house (to which we're trying to add 2 bedrooms and a bathroom), and a dozen old cars, I just don't get online much.

    Just sent my answers. Since the first question counts parts cars, I counted them on the last.

    Also, should be a favorite Ute category. The Baja and Brat just can't compete in the sedan and coupe categories.

    Whole numbers only? A list of the responding members would have helped, but maybe keeping that secret is the idea...

    1A) 7

    1B) ~40

    Answer Time:
    8.45 Subarus is the average owned by this group. Take a point if you guessed within 2 (6.45-10.45)
    Todd and Chux (no surprise to anyone here) reported that between the two of them they have owned 49. Take a point if you guessed 50.

    Fixed. I get it now. Being at home so long has deadened my senses more than I thought.

    Question 2 is based on your favorite Subaru sedan or wagon of all time? (year/model/trim level). There were a number of answers provided to this question but two cars stood out. What were they? Model and model run (years) made. For all you that replied 22B, to the best of my knowledge that only came in a coupe...right?
