Well it had to happen, New CV axle.. Check. New Muffler. Check. New Radiator...Check, Teenager + ditch = rolled 3 times. After the tow slide it off the ramp. I had to plug the neg wire back to the coil. It started up with me reaching in the door window and turning the key. That door is never going to open again. I figure the engine and 5 speed are OK. Anyone know what model years I can stuff this 4 banger in? Its a 1800cc with a the lovely hitachi Carb.
Flowers can be sent for the memorial service being held under the big oak tree on Subaru Hill...... for the car..... the kids sore but are Ok. Seat belts rule.. SC

As long it it didnt run upside down too long, and all the damage is body
Cut off the top (keep a fire ext. handy!) pull the doors.
Next weld up a full cage, and use it as a jumper thrasher.
This situation is how/why many build a truggy.
Or find a brat with a bad motor and use it as a donor.

That is an awesome idea. I could keep it street legal. I think all I need is Windshield and blinkers . are there some pictures of one somewhere? I live around the Chattanooga tn area if anyone has a brat body.

That would be so funny driving a convertable station wagon . I'm going to bang out the bent rims and see if I can hold some air in the tires

I guess the car would taco if I cut the roof with out the rol bars Huh? SC

Would a 84 1800 motor fit in this? \

There'd be wiring and fuel delivery to figure out. Oh and exhaust.

As a whole, it really isn't worth anything unless someone had a specific need.

As parts, its worth a few hundred bucks.. But its a bit of work tearing it down.

I would personally build a rhino buggy out of it.

parting it out to people on the boards you could get a couple hundred, and then take the car's shell to a metal recycler and sell it to them.
