Ok, so I've got a moral problem....

my business partner's Hyundai Galoper (4wd) is a POS. After months of telling him to get a cruiser, I finally found one for sale...

...but now I want it. :(

84 fj60- factory desmogged (3rd world model)
high roof
sunroof w/ map lights
PTO winch
5spd
16" splits
Factory Air
Rear Slider Windows
Power antenna
factory grab handle
interior is nearly perfect

Body is straight and rust free, paint is good, not perfect, but very good (don't like the color that much-- light blue)

Of course, I found it for him. And he's been asking me to look it over for him before he buys it. And he really needs a new truck and I really don't need another cruiser.

Ahh well. I guess I'll just have to view it enviously if he buys it.

thought I'd share with some sympathetic ears.... maybe make myself feel better.

I guess you have to ask yourself, how good of a friend is he? You should probably let him buy it. But atleast you'll have a fellow cruizer head to talk to. Sounds like a great truck. If it comes with an owners manual, could you scan it and post the specs for the factory desmogged engine? Wonder how it compares?

Ever do any fishing down there?

if he gets it, I'll take pics of the motor. I'm not absolutely sure it is factory desmogged... but there is no smog equipment at all. I'll look more carefully later.

How good a friend? We own a business together. Spend all day at the same office. It would take some pretty smooth talking on my part to dig myself out of that grave.

I just wanted someone to point out to me that I couldn't do it. Sorta like the angel on the shoulder balancing out my cruiser-lust blinded self. :)

Steve, you can't do it--wouldn't be right. You'd blow all your cruiser karma and be screwed for life.

Tell him what a nice rig it is, and that you would buy it (depending on price I guess). Then if he doesn't buy it, you can scoop it up w/ a clear concience. But you've gotta give him the first crack at it.

Just my .02.
