Back to normal programming!
I have a 78 project and its been surprisingly easy to get most of what i have needed (mostly drivetrain/steering). Some parts on back order cause Kurt doesn't have any and waiting on another shipment (new tie rods)but i am told we will get them. Mostly interior parts are most difficult for now and command some monies. This seems to have gotten little better over the years with Cruisercorps, Cityracer llc and of course Cruiser outfitters. Each seems to have grown due to the popularity of Landcruisers and difficulty in finding parts and i am thankful for their businesses.
Still hoping that the sale of a local 72 with a snowplow falls through in my favor. Hard to find the perfect little plow rig. Craigslist searches last night yielded pretty much nothing in any states surrounding me. Sad indeed cuz it ain't gonna get better!!
When my stock 6 cylinder pulled my fully self contained travel trailer up Cajon Pass at 25 mph, and my 300 h.p. Chevota pulled the same trailer up the same pass at 55 mph, I very quickly gave up any "purist" thoughts I might have habored.
Of course this only applies to Subaru's which are much more capable of going the speed limit. All we have around here are 2 lane roads, and a straight one is rare. Nothing like barreling downhill on curvy road in a 40.
