    Hey guys, would like your opinion on this, I went and looked at it and is is super clean, not one indication of rust and the interior is perfect, it's as solid as you could get. But something is strange with the electrics, and there's a hole melted in the A/C unit on the firewall??, he says it'll run randomly and sometimes it'll blow a fuse and die?, it did run when I was there, with all the electronic bullshit in there I'm a little leary on this. I can get it for $1500 think it's worth it???, seems like it would be worth it for just parts???, not what I really wanted but if the price is right???, what you guys think????.

    Well, went and looked at it more closely, that noise on start up got my curiosity so I crawled under it while he cranked it over and sure as shit the flex plate is broke and could be more from the sound, it was nasty sounding. So then I pulled the tranny dipstick only to see barely a drop of fluid on the stick and it was brown and stunk like shit so tranny(TH400) is toast, so I started telling him a list of shit that has to be done and I thought he was going into shock, lol, I offered him a $1000 cash on the spot and he jumped on it, so with the tow home I have $1300 in it, it's worth way more than that as a roller, it'll be here tomorrow and I'll take some pics..

    Thanks man.. Yeah, it wasn't what I wanted but I couldn't see turning it down,lol, anxious to pull the tranny now and see what's going on back there, maybe I'll start a thread on that deal.... Right now that fan don't do shit, lol, that burb just barely fits inside the door, if I go in any farther it won't sit right on the lift, I can only lift the door about 6", I need a roll up door!!..
