Offer them 10,000. Then put a 1hdt in it!! This BJ73 is super clean and not rusted at all. I have seen it in person and have taken it for a test drive.. Its really sad about the diesel motor that is in this BJ. I still want this 70 series really bad but don't have a 1htd to put in her and they are firm on that 18g price.. Almost traded my 1991 e34 M5 for this cruiser. They didn't want to in the beginning when I went to see it. They did some research on my M5 and then they wanted to. I did some research on the VM motor and said NO.. Also was schooled by Chris S. on the VM BJ's..
