I picked it up today from the original owner, its been sitting since 2004. 2TC engine, 5 Speed, RWD, Deluxe model, a $20 junkyard battery, a squirt of starting fluid, some fresh gas, and she fired right up and drove out of the woods and right up onto the trailor. Here's some pics, a deep cleaning is first on the list, then the radiator it suposedly needs, and any other little things. Just figured I would share my little non sooby score. Now if only I could find a Brat like this.

Sweet find!
That would make an amazing drift car or a sweet restoration project.
That's so cool, I would love to have one of those...

Nice car. I see what looks like an uncut dash with the original radio and everything! Do minimal mods if any. Those are emerging classics/antiques.

Thanks for the complements guys.
Its got a little rust in the rear quarters but nothing serious, I cleaned it up today, its pretty nice lookin now, and took it for a spin. Found the leak in the radiator, not fixable, and that the water pump is on its way out, no biggie, and adjusted the carb. I have to say I'm likin it, its a great little car especially considering it was free.

More pics lol

There are a few of those scooting around my area...with big fat rear tires and skinny front tires lol. Nice find. Just one question not necessarily directed at you...do all late 70s cars have to be poop brown or pea green :lol:
