First one I ever saw was my previous red 165. That would have been around 2000 or so. Wrecked it in 2003. Since then I've seen maybe 2-3 other 165's (a white one in Redmond not too long ago). Just purchased a black 165 a month ago. Probably another or two one in there.

Right after I wrecked my first one I wanted to buy a black 185, met up with a guy (probably from here), went for a test drive around Southcenter and everything but didn't have the right about of cash at the time. I know I've seen at least a couple other 185's around.

I've seen a 205 conversion (at least I think it was a conversion). 'twas red.

I've only seen 2 st205's and 1 other alltrac which was stubble on the forum.

I'm the most modded of them all so far. But the worst looking lol!!

ST165 - check
ST185 - check
ST205 - check
ST215 - check
ST246 - check

st165's are a unique sighting in NZ. Most commonly at targa's or rally/motorsport club days. I see one every 6 months maybe? Maybe $1.5 - 4k

st185's are around but usually look pretty worn out. See one every 3-4 weeks looking like a piece of junk. Occasionally I'll see an RC. There are 2-3 in my region. Saw a black GT4 narrow body today driven by some young kids. Paint fade, crap factory wheels, looked like it could use a shotgun IMO. Then there is a purple one with a veilside kit driven around by a young lady. Probably has Gaga, Rhianna and that useless girl who drawls out words pretending to sing, on the radio. Prince range $1500 - $6k

st205's are around and I'll see one once or twice a month on the road. Depends where I'm driving. I can call a friend and look at his if I want. Silver, teal, black and red ones are around. Price range from $5k worn to $10k high quality.

st215's are a bit more dime a dozen. It is a common alternative to the Subaru Legacy which is so popular here in NZ and I see them every second or third day. Or minimum 5 times a week when I head over the bridge onto the motorway when I go to work as a Caldina GTT comes the other way around 7.45am driven by a mum with her kids in the back.
Can buy them for as low as $5k NZ. Common price is $7k to9k and above $10k for tickled cars with 19's, t3/t4 owned by side orientated flat peaks who do promotion work for Ken Block.

st246 are newer to the country but are becoming more popular. Actually a real GT-FOUR, the st246 Caldina is becoming a popular car with its futuristic looks. Would probably see one maybe every 2 weeks and definitely more often that st205's. $14000NZ for a N-edition with factory recaros. Note - no manuals in this model, but I have spare st205 box in the backyard ;)

First 'Trac I've seen was back in 2001. I was at the Hwy 101 to I-5 ramp in Olympia and this clean white ST165 caught up to me. Pretty quickly took off and it astonished me because of how the car could accelerate into the corner and post apex acceleration. Since then I've admired these little cars as they are stylish and decently capable.

Afterwards in 2004 came across a ST162 that a friend was trying to convert into a 'Trac. Reignited my love of the style for these cars.

2007 or so, my brother purchased a ST185 project car. Was in great shape, but had a few rust spots and a bit of hail damage. For the price and how well it ran it was a fun little car. It wasn't as fast as my Subaru, but I immediately became jealous as the 'Trac just felt right to sit in as a driver. My Subaru felt very tall and not as driver oriented, and to be honest the interior felt tinny and cheap. I was convinced from then on that I'd pick one of these up if I were to sell my Subaru.

That day finally came and I've picked up a nice little ST165 and I love it. It needs some work, but the seating position, power everything, leather, and its driving character make it a joy to own.

First one I ever saw I bought.

Then saw a silver 165 outside a pizza shop in CO, then another in passing on the freeway with a bunch of mexicans driving it. Then A guy came to school who had one, it was a gunmetal one.

Since then ive seen both of Justin's 93s (2of81) and Fred's which is now crashed (therealmusashi)

Ive seen an ST205 conversion? and a couple of FWD 204s with hoods and bumpers if that counts...

So thats
1 165
6 185
1 205?
