    I'm going to have 3 cars and have decided they're all going to be cruisers. I was thinking a 40, 60 and an 80 but I just love the 80 body style so much. So here's my question, I found a 1991 cruiser with 210 K I'm interested in. He bought it in 1995 with 40k on it and a salvage title. Hasn't done much to it, hasn't had any troubles with it. Seems like a fine looking truck and the guy seems like he stayed mostly on top of normal fixes. He wants $3,500 for it and I don't see many around for that price.

    With all this said would you look for a FJ62 over this or does the price seem fair enough to make it worth while? Anybody in NM that can take a look at this one for me?

    Seems high for 210k AND a salvage title. I got mine for $3500ish with a clear title and 165k (last year). That does look cosemetically better then though..

    See if you can get him to drop it a little. . .

    too mnay miles and too much money unless it has had recient major work done to it


    mac daddy tune up
    all fluids
    new tires
    new brakes
    rebuilt ft axle

    I would pay a little more and get a good 62 and a 93+ FZJ80

    Yeah that was sort of what I was thinking, even at $2,000 it would still need $1,000 in work so I think I'll pass. You just don't see a ton of deal on cruisers and the Sub-$3,000 isn't really there.

    Do yourself a favor and get a 93+ with lockers. You will be soo happy. Also, shoot me some pics of the sc400 if its still available. I love those cars and that V8 has got to be fun.

    NM is a big state. If you narrow it down a little some of the NM guys might look at it for you.

    That's why I bought the 96 cruiser, it's locked... So I don't care on this one, I just want another cruiser.. As for the SC 400, just sold on ebay for $2,250 but the buyer has backed out I'm sure, that's what I expect with ebay. Check it out and you can let me know, my email is this user name @yahoo.com.....

    Oh sorry, i apologize. Your sig line didnt show the 96 so i didnt know you had one. Well we had a 92 once, same color. My brother wrecked it at 50 mph, fell asleep at the wheel....not a scratch, to him that is. They are still tanks.
