I've been without a RUNNING/DRIVING personal vehicle since summer and riding my motorcycle. Thought I would get my 78 Salon finished to use as my daily but its taking a lot longer to finish up the restoration than I had planned. Now its cold and got a part time job. Needed a vehicle so for two weeks I've been on my local craigslist. Thought I wanted to get a 73-87 squarebody Chevy truck or 78-up ElCamino but they have got pricey. I cannot believe the prices around here for trucks. I just happen to check craigslist yesterday morning and it was the first post that popped up. I was the first to call and it was about 20 miles from me. No rust, 113,000 miles, and working AC. While I was there his phone was ringing off the hook. We settled on $1850 and I drove it home. It is leaking oil everywhere and has the optional self lubricating chassis. Lol. I'm going to pull the engine Monday and power wash engine and engine bay, tear it down and put in new seals and gaskets including rear main. I will put in a new timing chain too since the cover will be removed. I'll replace the hoses and belts too. It has an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and Edelbrock carb. It looks like a new HEI distributer too. Checked the coolant yesterday and its muddy. So I'll do a complete flushing with the hose after engine is out. Not a huge project like my Salon but going to put in new carpet, new tires, dash cover, and maybe a new seat cover. Going to clean up the paint a little but won't repaint till next summer. Just glad to be mobile again and not in a rush to finish my Salon.
