I agree with learning to drive stick, it's just plain fun! I prefer stick over auto anytime. Unfortunately, Brats and salted roads don't mix too well. That's why they're so rare here in the NE. The salt gods got them all a long time ago. Mine will stay home during the winter months. Well, maybe just...

93 went up as high as $3.89 here, over $4.00 at some stations in Boston.

Why was diesel 20-30 cents more than regular unleaded before all this happened? Diesel prices didn't change. Makes no sense.

I have been using the '78 Brat as a daily driver.

Our black lab not only got in wet from rain, but seawater = P-U! He has also puked in it and once hid some bacon from McDonald's in between the seat... luckily, I clean it a bare minimum of twice a week! Let it dry out and vacuum it with the bare nozzle. The fabric and carpet cleans easily in this c...

Got the paint... Viper Red. Still playing with the decal styles and color. Tim's '50 gets paint tomorrow. '86 Brat gets primed Sunday? <crossed fingers> The engine failed in the '78 so that was the priority. Got a used one 49,000 mi. Picked it up today in the Baja. Looked kinda wild... Brat engine n...

I can't touch my little one, it needs to stay as stock as possible. Soooo, I got the '86 to modify. We just replaced the bad front body parts and just about have it stripped. I got the paint, Viper red. I'll add an A-bar, roll bar, jump seats, side steps, lights and 3-4" lift. I found some beau...

That's an awesome sight... a sea of Subarus! I'm sorry I missed it. My '78 Brat was down with an idle/stalling issue. My '86 is stripped down to its tires. Maybe next year!

Go for the blue... it'll be less of a cop magnet. Don't you like the two-tone body? I think it really defines the odd look of the Baja than a single color. I have seen complete silver, red, black and blue ones and barely recognized them as a Baja. When it's two-tone it shows the squirrely design.

That would be neat... I thought about doing that with the '86, Monterey Silver over Brilliant Silver to match my Baja, but my playful side decided to go for the Viper Red... the "grey" is too conservative for a Brat... it needs to be flashy. I have some ideas for custom decals in tan vinyl...

Let me know how the bolts work out. Are you bolting in from the top for easy removal? I want to bolt the seats into the new '86. The sliding window needs to be changed to one that opens in the middle. Skippy, the black lab, can't join the conversation with the current window that opens on the sides ...

Hey Screamin, thats the window putting pressure on the gasket with the window up. Then the door seems to drop when you open it when the pressure on the weatherstrip is relieved by the glass pulling away when the door opens. Mike I figured it was nothing to worry about... and it had to do with the u...

My driver's door sags a bit when I open it. There's also a squaling noise at 80+ when it's windy. Sounds like it's in the front vents. It alternates between driver & passenger sides. Go'N in next wk for a check-up. My door feels like it sags when I open with the window closed too, but if the wi...

I think they expected a lot of tailgate sitting... bottoms up! It holds 666 lbs. doesn't it so if the load is longer, and sits on the gate it can handle the weight.

We picked up the Brat today at Paul's. He filled the bed with bits and pieces and odds an ends that will come in handy for this and my '78. The interior is tan... the pictures were deceiving... the seats are a grey/blue... they will leave, or be professionally recovered. I have decided to replace th...
