    I'm suppose to get this dana 60 this weekend. But before I drive all the way to go get it I figured I should check with the CK5 panel:D.

    I was told this is a SRW chevy 60 and the only problem with it was a broken outer on the drivers side. There does look like there's some rust but I can't tell if it's only surface or it goes deeper.

    What's the decision....buy or not buy?

    "Rough shape for five grand? Her late husband had it in the barn for 25 years? But it's all there? What does the tank sheet say it has for an engine? That part of the sheet is mostly gone? Is the an RPO L and 2 numbers still visible? L...8...8..." :eek1:

    (glass falls from hand and smashes on floor).

    "Umm...no, that's a...terrible vette, weak engine, but I might be able to fix it up or something to keep me busy this winter. You keep looking and find a better one. Hand the phone to that nice old lady so I can talk to her" :D

    Honey, go get the trailer hitched! We have a car to get...
