1985 GL Brat.
165k miles.
Hydro-lifter EA81 runs better than my other 2 subarus :lol:

Here's the sweet part ... it was LESS than $200. and i drove it home

Fun tops don't leak at all.
Carpet stained, but no rips.
Dash is gorgeous.
Some rust, but you East Coasters would laugh at it.
Needs a battery.
Included a bed full of tumbleweeds under a low topper.

more pics here

Plans are to do some body work
(notice where some idiot whacked off the mirrors, denting both doors)

Take care of the rust
Paint it
Different wheels/tires.
It'll definitely not be a wheeler.

Thought about it. NO. :lol:

so you will be leaving the tumbleweeds :lol:

They were safely released into the wild.

I saw it on craigs list. Did you get a title?

It was for sale about 6 months ago for $1000, but then it disappeared
into the guys shop. It's got a new rad, water pump, tires, fresh oil.
Wasn't neglected, just not loved enough i guess.
Title is in the works.:burnout:

I'll get some pics of the rust for you bratman, when it stops raining here in arid northern NV.

I think it was a fair deal.
I'm gonna need two mirrors, but they shouldn't be hard to find locally.:)

The title situation is about settled with this sucka.
Two more weeks according to the district court.

I've been reluctant to put any real time into her because of it,
but she's sittin pretty on some 26x14's now.

I've changed directions with it, as well.
Too much rust to not be a wheeler...
but not bad enough to treat like a 3rd gen :grin:
