I own a few of them. Guess it makes sence to start this thread with my favorite daily beater. Its a true frankenwagen, loyale rear crossmeber (original one broke in 2) loyale dashboard (the old one melted due to an ashtray fire) Still has the original motor and trans. It started as a 1986 gl fwd 3speed auto. It leaves oil spots and piles of rust whever it goes, but its still chugging along. Recently added a trailer hitch for hauling even more crap in it on junk hunting adventures. This car is a roach that won't die, indestructable.

Heres a front shot of the frankenwagen. Custom cargo roof-basket courtesy of a junked old swing set and bedframe rails. added some 2x4's for hauling a canoe. Need to add some duct tape to save the last piece of door moulding left on rear door. The rest of the body moulding was lost in the wind. Hood and grill were taken out by Bambi's mom 2 yrs ago, added some front end protection for the next battle with wildlife wandering on the roads.

My Winter beater 1993 Loyale 5speed 4WD. It's on it's second engine. The first motor blew up because I could't get off the highway quick enough after the water pump went.

Had some scrap diamond plate laying around, makes good rust repair. New England winters are not kind to metal.

My 1985 Brat was in service for the last 2 years, but I had to chop it up this past spring. The rear end was completely rusted beyond repair. The whole rear assembly was 1 pot hole away from separating from the car.

It was a great truck, but some of it's parts will live on in my new brat. While it looks pretty sound, underneath the frame rails, and all the major bolt on sections for susspension pieces were literally dust. I was lucky to get it home in one piece on it's last voyage. Excellent motor and tranny to live on in my other cars.

Picked this one up for my son. Its a 1986 GL 3spd auto fwd a clean example of an early ea82 interior, original floor mats and radio still in the car. This sedan really was owned by a little old lady who just used it to go to the grocery store. I have put about 8,000 miles on it and had about 50,000 when I bought it. Car sat for a couple years before I picked it up, fresh oil and a new battery was all that was required to get it back in service. EA82's may be the readheaded step-child of the subaru family of engines, but they still take a beating and keep on ticking (pun intended)

GO to a vinyl shop and have your font ready to go. Easy cheesy.... Should be a few bucks at that.
