I am making a 240 mile round trip this morning to pick up my new to me, fresh barn find 1978 Brat. That seems like a far way to go to some but if you have ever Been to West Texas you know that's only about three and a half hour round trip drive no busy roads and such.
The guy I am getting it from was hard to deal with because he did not want cash just wanted to trade :/ we'll that's not bad but I love everything I own and am quick to get rid of stuff I don't like ( just ask the two ex wives and I'm only 30 lol. But needless to say I had to have this BRAT, she looked so sad setting in the barn and not being touched for over ten years. The Brat not my ex wives they could use some shelf time in a barn lol:-)
So long story a lot of talking trades and a few guns later I am gassing up the old Chevy 2500 cargo van and going to get my new BRAT.
I will post pics of me picking it up from the barn and when I get it back to my shop.
Ok updated with pictures, sorry if they are not to great still trying to get use to the new iPad. I would have posted them yesterday but had to take the wife out to dinner and a movie since I got a new toy
The first two pictures are from where I picked it up at they are not to great but you can tell it was in a true barn on a farm in west Texas. She is dirty and dusty but she will not be that way for long. There is some rust but not bad at all from what I have seen on other brats, from what the guy said the car spent it entire life in West Texas. First things first I am going to see if I can get this thing running and go from there. When I made it home yesterday I pulled the plugs and squirted some mystery oil in there so now off to go and check a few things and see if it will fire up.
