I just got back from the local police auction where I scored a '85 GL Hatch for $5! They said it had a bad tranny, you know the kind that makes the drivers side axle spin in the hub:brow: . So I put some gas in it, threw it in 4lo and drove it home. It's got 115k, push bar,and rear cargo cover (needs recarpeted but is intaked). The body is mostly rust free, exept the drivers door and rear quarter panel where it was hit and someone tried to pull it out and botched the job. I'll be gutting most of it and doing some sawsall action on it.

Ya, this is the third "bad tranny" I've recovered.

I'm keeping the push bar for the Brat but it does have a good element in the rear glass ifn you want to replace yours.

It just keeps gettin better.....I found a craftsman 1/2 breaker bar in the rear cargo area, under the spare and a bunch of garbage. Man this is the best $5 I've spent in a long time!
