Talking Saw a Brat today!

I saw a light blue Brat with a cap on the bed today on Gratiot. I was surprised at how nice the body was considering those things were notorious rust-buckets! Only a little rust at the tailgate. Pretty rare sight around here.

That brings back memories.... I had a 1984 BRAT, black with the suicide seats in the back as my first car.

Thumbs up

My Dad had 3 different ones, each had over 150K miles on it before it rusted out. Really fun in the snow, the things ran forever but the body always gave out.

I had two - an '80 and an '82 both GLs with white caps which I only put on when I had to. The '82 had that third light behind the flip up emblem in the grill.

This brings up an interesting question - how come my lowly BRATs both had better standard gauge packages than my RS? Speedo, tach, fuel, water temp, oil pressure and volts. You'd think a performance car would come standard with those things. Oh well, just my $.02

I think Nederland, CO is the retirement home for Brats, they're everywhere and are rusty, even here.

Uh...even my old GM made 89 Sunbird had more gauges than my Impreza! And it was an auto too! What gives?!

That's funny, I just saw one too, up in North Carolina in the mountains right by the Nantahala river. It was a burgundy one.
