well, all i can say is... i hope not plus, i just read an article review placing the sube tied 5th out of 7 "pocket-rockets". the prelude was number one, and i don't remember the rest of the order, exceot we tied the GTI and beat the Cougar. So maybe the Celica will still go strong?

Yes, it's already happening here in Colorado. Just a few months ago, if I saw a 2.5RS, it was almost definite that I would know the driver. Now, I honk and wave, but just get blank stares in return. There's a ton of them out there now... They're becoming... "common"... eeek...

Back in the 70's when BMW sold the 2002, the roundel was quite rare. People who bought a BMW did so not because of the image, but because it was a good car.

BMW still makes good cars, but the majority of people who now buy them are badge-whores.

I bought my Subaru because it had AWD. That is the ONLY reason I bought it. I'm sure that is why most of those present bought it.

As Subaru tries to move upmarket (look at what is happening to the Legacy) the badge-whores will sit up and take notice.

We are already dangerously near the point where you will be able to find Subaru owners who are not sure if thier car is FWD or RWD.
In 2002/2003 you WILL see used 2001 Outbacks for sale, advertised as having a V-6 engines.

Bite your tongue! I see tons of Outbacks and OBS, but not many RSs.

I can only hope that if the popularity does continue to increase, that the drivers will still have that sense of family, unlike the Honda folks.

I thought the production number of the RS was pretty low, something like 5000. I don't know this as fact but if it is around that number then it is nowhere near the number of civics, accords, or corollas out on the road. So you go from seeing one a week to maybe 2-3 a week perhaps? That's still pretty rare.

It's all demographic. When I head down to Toronto. I am almost certain of seeing at least one RS a day. Head out to lalaland here, I see lots of Outbacks and Foresters. So it depends where you live.

Cool

Demographic, yes. The Outbacks outnumber the Chevies around here but rarely do you spot an RS.

One way you can look at it is that if there are more RS vehicles out there, maybe we will start to have more after-market parts available to us. That would be a plus!!

Besides, if you wanted a rare car, a Subaru is not exactly the car to have. If it was, it would have cost four times what you paid for yours.
