OK, so I found a 92 for sale. It's white, ORIGINAL OWNER (that was for Landpimp). It's got 200k on it, interior is CLEAN. All service records. He is asking 5K but will take $4500. Now, I need another cruiser like I need a hole in the head, BUT, this sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I haven't driven it yet, as I might get attached.

What do you guys think? Deal? Haven't priced any used 80's lately. s***, I paid more for my 60 then that! Hell, I paid that for my 40.

Sounds like a "walk up with 3K cash" job to me.

Buy it and part it out and keep the goodies you can use.

You can double your money =)

I'd rather have a 200k mile 80, even a 3FE powered one, than a lot of other vehicles. Especialy for less than 5 grand. I would certainly take it over a 60/62 with similar miles. If it's all there and runs under it's own power, I think you got a winner there.

Offer $3k and swap in a SBC.

Yeah, at least then you will have to work on the engine! :-\ Otherwise the truck will go 300K!
