June 2013 - Cazenovia - After I had the Brat shipped from Missouri, I had the Salvaged title cleared in Maine. The first day the car was on the road, A Porsche Suv hit the passenger side of it. I picked the door trim up off the side of the highway and went about my way. I received a check for eleven dollars (it was never cashed) and the trim has sat in the bed since.
The tailgate latch doesn’t work even though I replaced the handle. There was a hornet’s nest inside when I tried to take a look at it and I promptly closed it. It’s dry in there and they seem to enjoy the changing scenery.
The speedometer hasn’t worked since I’ve had the car. I’m certain this car could never go above 70 mph. So in my opinion it’s not necessary. I’ve been judging speeds by the tachometer and have never been pulled over for speeding in this car.
I was however pulled over in Narragansett, Rhode Island one summer for failing to yield at a rotary. It was late and I was drunk but was with a girl I was seeing at the time. I had rented a hotel room on the beach and our relationship was over by the time I dropped her off at her house.
I’m looking to sell this car for a fair price. The odometer has just over 106,000 miles on it, but it hasn’t worked in 5 years.
$ 3,500 obo
