Hello,

I'm a Kansas City cruiser junky who is helping a close friend facilitate his first cruiser purchase. Noah, future cruiserhead, has been on the search for a locked 80-series for quite some time. He has his sights set on the following 1995 FZJ80 in Raleigh (zip code 27608).

http://raleigh.craigslist.org/cto/4744807250.html

Seeing as how we're approximately 1,000 miles away, we're reaching out to you fine folks in case anyone is close to the vehicle and willing to take a look. We've been in contact with the seller, a very nice guy who is very welcoming of a fellow cruiserhead pouring over his vehicle.

If you're free and willing, please reply to the post or PM me. From there, we can connect by phone, email or text, whichever is preferred, and go over the details. And, thank you VERY much, in advance. If there's ever a need to do the same for a cruiser here in KC, hit me up.

All the best,
Matt

What's the timeframe you need someone to look at this (tonight, tomorrow, this week sometime, this weekend, next week, etc.)?

If no one else is free, and you have time over the weekend, we would take you up on that and be very appreciative. The seller is holding it for my friend.

Good looking cruiser in the pictures. I'm interested if the HG has been done or not. 95's rock!

I don't believe it has... The owner doesn't think so, either. It seems like a pretty straight truck. It's had a few fender benders, and the front fenders and hood have been repainted, at a minimum. I'd imagine the front bumper/grill/etc. has had some work or been replaced, too. It also apparently smokes a bit at start-up -- probably worn valve seals due to the miles, but nothing to freak out about.

Awesome!!! Thanks for helping out!!

Who's shop is that?
A longtime friend that live 2 miles from Marcia and I. He works out of it most days. He is very reasonably priced and is very knowledgeable. His family ran the Raleigh bus terminal until it moved from downtown and he was the main mechanic working on the buses. I can hook up anyone that needs a good mechanic or wants to get their rig into the air. He can usually check out your ride that week you get up with him.

This is the second LC coming from Raleigh area to KC that I have heard of this week :) **edit - if they work out**
We're all just so awesome that non members benefit from selling a NC truck just on the hopes that we've touched it! Geez, buyers are stupid. :p

You find a house yet? When you getting here?
