Do We Even Need a Reason to Post a Brat?

Subaru Brat for saleSubaru Brat for sale
No. No, we do not. To appease the skeptics, this is the nicest looking Brat I’ve ever seen at <i>any price</i>, let alone for a mere $2500. It’s got 120k miles, t-tops, jump seats, and AC. Keep in mind, those t-tops are glass pop-up units, arguably the pinnacle of 80s roof engineering. We dig the originality, but feel the brush guard would be nicely complemented by a set of yellow KC Daylighters with happy face covers.
You rust belt residents may commence your road-salt lamentations.

    The more post I read on Hooniverse, the more I want t-tops for my truck. What happened to t-tops, anyways?

      The 90s happened. I was to young to do anything when they went away (except maybe with the Camaro), but if the Corvette ever loses its targa roof, I'm entirely prepared to cut a bitch.
      Although, if you get a 4-door Wrangler with the hardtop, they've still got the t-top option (Freedom top, as they like to call it – proof Chrysler's stuck in 2002?).

    I want some daylighters for the Jeep, but just can't shake some weird feeling I have about them

    Man, I am going to have to quit reading this blog. A $349 Merc and now this, both near enough to where I live.
    Maybe there should be a column advising hoons how to convince their SOs these bargains CANNOT be missed. That would solve things for me.

    Ack! It's in the next town over! Gotta keep the windows shut so I can't hear it calling to me.

    Damn you for rubbing it in with that last sentence. Desired affect achieved. Stupid rust…

    I've always had a secret lust for one of these as well as a Rabbit pick-up.
    It probably has to do with the fact that not far from where I grew up there was a house with 2 Rabbit pick-ups and 2 Brats.

    Ah, the Brat, a product of international trade disputes and protectionism.
    A little known background; the plastic seats were added so that Subaru could import the Brat as a car, not a truck. Trucks had (still have?) an import duty on the order of 25% (somebody have the correct number?). So very clever……

      Those seats are also useful for inducing vomiting.

    For those of you have a Brat already and may be looking for restoration parts, my 1983 Subaru Brat met an untimely end, so I'm parting is out. Tail lights, trim, the famous back jump seats, a camper shell and more. For a current part inventory visit:

    So is this car still for sale? Today is April 15th, 2011. Does anyone answer these questions?

    1. mdharrell Avatar

      No, nobody answers these questions. The ad which inspired this article was posted on Craigslist well over a year ago, as was the article itself– check the date at the top of the page. Brats are fairly plentiful, so go find a current listing if you really want one.
