New guy in Portland, OR

Hey all, glad to have stumbled upon this site. I am undertaking my first "project" car. I just picked up a 79 brat and it has become my daily driver. Right now I am working on getting everything running how I want it and then will focus on body work. The car has pretty minimal rust and shouldn't take much to get it where I want it. I am sure I will learn quite a bit from this one.

Thanks for the link! I picked it up from the guy waldoz sold it to. I am really glad to see the progress this car has gone through and makes it even more exciting to keep it alive. As you can see no 4 inch lift was done to it. So far I have just been fixing things as needed. I will keep a detailed build journal of what I have done. Glad to be here!

Sweet! I am new here too! I found PNW Subaru enthusiasts on Facebook, but they seem to be geared toward the new stuff. Any PDX area clubs that are more into the earlier stuff?

haven't heard or seen any but there are 2 subaru meets that happen each year in the PNW. but i have have seen some subaru groups around im sure they could use some older ones. or just make one:brow:

I went to one of the meets and I was the only older subaru out there...Some of the people didn't even know the brat was a subaru. Im on the PNW facebook group as well btw.

Hey Kevin. Its Marshall off PNW.

 

I know what you mean about going to those meets and being the only old gen... I was going to go to Cars and Coffee but I worked until 12 the night before, got home at about 1 and so when 7am rolled around, I just shut the alarm off and thought "next time"
