Ok. My wife let me. Actually, she almost made me do it. $5100.00 for a piece of history, and a great little vehicle to boot !
Turns out there's quite a story attached to the little red beast. Seems that the Brat was given to Ronald Reagan by Subaru of America. I'm working on finding out all of the details.
I will most likely be transferring the little piece of history to the Ronald Reagan Ranch Museum in Santa Barbara.

I'll find out all the details I can on it's past life and post it to the board.

Imagine that. Ronaldus Magnus in a Suby. Just proves how wonderful a man he truly is.

More power to ya, I've been watching that one since it went up for sale. I was astonished to how much it went for. I would have bought stewart c's if I was gonna spend that much money, but then again u were buying it because of the owner, not the actual car. Awesome, Keep us informed with what u find out about it.

I watched that one on ebay too. Too expensive for my taste, but a good find nonetheless.

Wow, this is something you don't see every day. Congratulations on a very unique purchase! That is also an incredible thing to do, donating it to the museum. This should be archived, let it be known that Ronald Regan's Brat passed through the USMB. Cool.:cool:

One of my jobs includes washing a 1946 Packard that was owned by Ronald Reagan. He must have owned a lot of cars.
