1980 Subaru BRATReview
Tim Young Gift — This car is in running operation with some minor problems needs a new cluth and some newer tires. The interior is a little torn and the back hold on handle for rear seats is missing. I cannot pop the hood from the inside and I need to know the best place to get a repair manual. The exterior is a little shabby with some dents and dings and the outside metal boards are rusted badly and need repair. Yes, I would recommend this car to a friend.
Pros: The power plant still works
Cons: The interior and exterior are in shabby condition.
