I didn't think anyone would remember the Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter! I had the 1st one sold in the St. Louis area back in '78. I had a lot of fun with it, if you got stuck, two normal(?) guys could pick up the rear and set it over to get unstuck. http://i680.photobucket.com/albums/v...ubaruBrat3.jpg

I think that's a bB Open Deck, a pickup version of the JDM bB.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Thanks for the identification. It's called a Toyota bB Open Deck coupe utility but not exported by Scion to the US. Must be grey market JDM. They also added deck seats.

...could use a signature - fastback/aero-back cover.

It's not the JDM version. I could clearly see the rear door handle, so it may be just a salvaged xB with a chopped top.
