SUBARU BRAT! "AM I NUTS"

OK sold the Sami!!

And have decided to build a more friendly daily drivable,better mpg, expedition rig...
Thinking on the lines of this

Have found a few good candidates...
This ones a CLEAN 1982

1.8 4wd high/low 4speed avg 25-30mpg with ac and factory canopy/jump seats. I'm thinking mild lift (3inches), custom bumpers, custom rear rack for storage, small arb fridge with stove for day trips, that will be towed behind Vatonka!
Am I nuts or what? Let me know what ya think
Buck

Re: SUBARU BRAT!

Do it. The shell is a big plus IMO, since they're probably hard to find anymore.

Re: SUBARU BRAT! "AM I NUTS"

That's a cool Brat! Looks in nice shape. Back in the 80s I had one of the early Subaru AWD wagons, probably from the 70s, complete with front brush guard. Wish I still had it! I'm on my sixth Subie now.

Re: SUBARU BRAT!

I used to spend a lot of time in this forum: http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/

Great score on the Brat. Do it

Part of getting wifey to agree to the SMB purchase was getting rid of two 1978 4WD wagons. I've also had a 79 sedan, an 87 Loyale, and a 99 Outback. Great cars, especially the older ones.

Re: SUBARU BRAT!

Here's one: http://monterey.craigslist.org/cto/4364909637.html

Looks rough but maybe you could fix it up some, flip it for a nicer one.

"...needs all whole a lot a loving ..." That's an understatement.

Re: SUBARU BRAT!

I think you're nuts. of course anyone who spend big bucks on an SMB is nuts, so you are on the right forum.

Have fun with your Brat. I had fun with mine.
