It took me about 25 years to get the '86 BRAT I always wanted, but the day has finally come. I fell in love with her the moment I laid eyes on her and had to have her. I have a 2005 Baja I bought new and love it, but always wanted the original. The body is solid, no rust (AZ car) but it does need a little engine and front end work. After all, she does have 214,000 on her. Anyone know anyone in Phoenix who I can trust with some engine and/or restoration work?

That is a very clean looking BRAT. I'd like to find one of the '78 variety, but if I found one that is that well off I wouldn't think twice. Nice find!

That's the one. The body is 100% rust-free and it just needs some front end work. I'm gonna make it showroom condition!

:slobber:

Looks like it just rolled off of the showroom floor.

Nice find!
