Talk to them -- see if they can hold it a month.

I don't know how it is in wyoming, but in CO you have to post a bond for twice the value of the car as part of the process of getting a new title. More money... But that thing is probably worth at least $1,000 unless it's rustier than the picture implies. I might go have a look at it tonight

just spoke to the owner, he says its got rust through in the rear quarters and the front fenders are pretty bad and some more he couldn`t think of., i was just HOPEING it might have had little to no rust, but by the sounds of it, it has more than what i`m looking for, Caboobaroo`s wagon was ideal because it had no rust, but i found a cheap shipper after he had left Oregon:banghead:


Oh yea, the guy said some subaru enthusiast already called dibs on the roll bar, so that doesn`t come with it i guess.

Thanks for all your help Jerry Demoss, and thanks for the offer to look at it zyewdall.

PS. SOMEONE GRAB THIS POOR BRAT, if you are local, its still a nice parts unit or beater if you have a title, i`m just looking for something rock solid for a special h/o ea71 project.

Great. I was out of town the last week and never got a chance to look at it, but I'm glad someone got it.

I talked to Tom about it and he is just getting parts off of it to use on a cherry brat he got from NM.Pretty sure he has no intention of getting that thing liscensed.
