This is my "summer/road trip" car on a trip to Oregon last summer. I don't drive her in bad weather. She's spoiled.:p

And this was my "winter car". A 1980 Subaru Brat. I purchased it for $600 and took it from this:

My nephew and I did most of the body work, except the paint.
I did a lot of long neglected maintenance on the engine and brakes and whatnot. I love getting my hands dirty and greasy. Have always like working on cars. Used to help my Dad a lot and learned a lot from him.
Had the BRAT for about 5 years, got old and lazy and didn't want to do the work to keep it up amymore, and sold it because I wanted to get back in a New Beetle, and bought my DaZee.

Cool Brat! It looks like the paint and body work turned out really nice. Those old Brats are pretty rare these days, hopefully whoever you sold it to is taking care of it.
