    I actually got this like 2 weeks ago but haven't had time to take a pic of it till today. All I've done with it so far is move it back and forth out of my way when I'm coming and going here in town.

    Maybe I'll actually get time to drive it this week now that life is returning to its normal schedule for me.

    I really didn't have the spare $100 to spend on it, but I figured for $100 I'd drive it for a while and then re-sell it and make a few bucks. Kinda rough, but I can probably get $500 or so out of it later on.

    V6 with a 5spd manual. Tranny mount was just replaced and is going bad again. Body is rough and clutch is worn, but it does run and drive. Battery is dead again though. It went dead the same time all my other batteries did.

    It belonged to a friend who is in the military now. He wanted $250 for it. I said I'd give him $100 or it wasn't worth my time. His mom wanted me to haul it off for free and blow it up (literally with explosives), but I hate seeing things destroyed so I gave the $100 I offered for it and plan to keep it amongst the living. It's been a huge money pit to them, and she stressed to me many times that is was a huge POS. But I already knew the history on it.

    I substitute the extra hair of a mullet to my unibrow instead.

    I really feel out of place sitting in a car. I hate having to climb OUT of it. Thats why I traded back on that lowered '74 2wd stepside deal I had before. The truck just wasn't me. I drove it once then started driving the black K5 again.

    But the car gets like 20mpg. I can't not drive it. Wonder if I can make it tow my car trailer though. :thinking:
