Got me a 2nd 80 --

Well, my small search is over -- the clutch on my Civic just went, and I don't use my '94 as a DD, so I wanted to get a more "broken in" 80 --

-- I got a '91 with 170K for $4500 -- a lovely vehicle, in my eyes -- the PO even swapped the wheels out for the aluminums, and the color is great --

I've done all the fun stuff like synthetics all around, green-to-red coolant swap, zaino, wires/cap/rotor (thanks Dan!) and belts (had the dealer do that - no thanks!) -- will wait till the spring for the knuckle job -- too cold up here.

This is a really great vehicle -- I got it in NJ and there is NO rust on it at ALL -- I am absolutely surprised by the NJ winters -- no tail-gate bubbling, nothing on the door sills -- I got my other 80 in Jersey, too, and it's show-room clean -- well, almost... :)

I like the FJ engine/trans. combo quite a bit, and I don't notice a significant difference between my FZJ powertrain/brakes and this -- maybe b/c I drive sooo slow in it! I love the non-tinted glass, too --

-- anyway, I'll be around here for a while -- that's the best $4,500 I've spent in a while! I love the interior and the basic styling of this vehicle -- no racks, deflectors, burled wood, gold packages -- just solid value of a by-gone era --

I'm taking this to Salt Lake City tomorrow -- with a stop in Golden at Slee, of course... :D

eric :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

I knew you were an addict when you covered the nice cloth seats of your first one in leather... then added heaters to the new leather seats, then covered the nice new leather with Wet Okoles, then .... but I lost track about then.

... I'll pick it up where you left off -- "then put Cabelas covers on the Okoles on the Autoleathers on the seat heaters, affixed to the OEM cushion..." --

Haven't had time to take them yet. I have recently joined the land of plaid jackets and balloons on the antenna's :) I got my dealers license. Some of the trucks trucks we are buying from clients when the upgrade, some are deals that come by and we will check them out, dop maintenance and repairs as needed and then put them out for sale.
