    I am planning to buy a 78 sometime soon, and would like some of you to help. In order for me to get one that isn't a complete cancer-case, I will have to buy from the southwest or northwest somewhere, but I live in New Hampshire. Are there any of you in the Pacific NW or Arizona area that might be willing to go check out a truck for me, should I find a suitable one? I will make arrangements to get it here, but I want it checked out before I buy. It won't be for a few weeks, but I thought I'd get the request in now. Thanks.

    I'm in the northwest and can look for you... I've bought about 15 rigs in my life... i know what to look for...
    15 may sound bad... but it's a good thing...

    Well, just cuz you live in New Hampshire, it doesn't mean every rig is gonna be swiss cheese. I got my 84 from some guy who plowed into a saturn, and the truck was from florida. the only rust problem it has is a little rot by the rear floor area.. but everything is still sound and easily fixable. You never know. You may find a somewhat spotless truck where you live.
