Just wanted to check in and say hi. I really enjoy this site. I've owned 3 Subes in my life time and I'm currently looking for a 82-87 brat. My first Sube was a 81 Gl wagon, rootbeer brown. Great car but gutless. Sold it and bought a 86 Gl 10 turbo sedan. Faster but very bad turbo lag. I replaced the motor with a used import. My last was a 79 Brat. My biggest complaint, besides lack of power, was lack of room. Who puts reclining seats in a car with no room to recline? I took care of that. I removed my interior and cut out the section bwtween the cab and bed. Whala! Reclining seats. I put a canopy on it for the rainy days but eventually got tired of the lack of power and sold it. That was my last Sube.
I own an 87 BMW M6 with more mods than you could shake a stick at. It has 365hp and is just too nice to drive around here. When I sell it my brat search will become more focused. I will lift it, swap in a EJ and, oh yes, I will cut the cab open too. Hope to see you all around.
PS, If you just happen to be looking for a really nice BMW M6 then $18,500 is the price.
