Just a small update, had it smog checked. Made some adjustments and it is running better than ever while passing with flying colors. I swear it has to run cleaner than a prius now. All the measured numbers came in substantially lower than the average numbers.

December 8th, 2013 - May 19th, 2017.

 

So it is with a heavy heart that I write this post. Today, my Brat is no longer in the garage. I've parted ways with her, and hope that the new owners appreciate her as much as I have these last few years.

 

My intention when I originally brought her home was to save her from the scrap yard. I wanted to give it new life, take care of and restore her so that people would be proud to hop in, go for a ride and have fun. I feel I've made the little old Brat proud.

 

Farewell my little Brat!
