1986 or ’87 Subaru Brat GL


This Brat was spotted in Park City, Utah a few months ago by a friend of mine. It is either an ’86 or ’87, as indicated by the lack of jumps seats and mounting brackets for head rests in the bed. 1987 was the last year Brats were sold in the United States, but they continued to be produced until 1994 for Europe, Australia, Latin America, and New Zealand. This example is very rusty, like most Brats are at this point. One thing that caught my eye immediately is the wheels. Most Brats still retain their original wheels, because the 4×140 bolt pattern was only used by Subaru and, oddly, French manufacturer Peugeot. Consequently, there are very few aftermarket rims out there, and this is the first (and only) time I’ve ever seen wheels like this on a Brat.

1990-92 Lincoln Town Car… or Town Truck?

I found this 1990-92 Lincoln Town Car while walking the streets of Columbia, Missouri as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in June 2013. Although, I’m not entirely sure it can be rightly called a Town Car anymore. This one has been converted into a coupe utility, similar to an El Camino, Ranchero, or Brat. Lincoln Town Truck, perhaps? 😛 These were never built like this at the Lincoln factory (the first truck to be offered by Lincoln dealerships was the Lincoln Blackwood in 2002) and is obviously a one-off custom job. Even so, it appears to have been well built. Rather awesome, in my opinion.
