A dude I know picked this up for $300, he wanted to flip it to me for 6 and I talked him down to 5. 1999, 1 owner, 100k. I was initially interested in it as a parts truck but it turned out to be a lot nicer than what I expected before seeing it.





There's a little damage to the passenger side. Nothing too gnarly though...


















An older couple owned it(shocking considering the wheels) and parked it 6 months ago because they thought the master cylinder was bad. Turns out it's just the hard line going to the rears. After sitting for that long it needs a lot of odds and ends. Tires, rotors, pads, some routine maintenance etc.. It runs, drives, goes through all the gears fine. No smoke, ticks, knocks. I think I got a good deal

Anyways the plan at the moment is to fix it up and drive it. Not really the time of year for wrenching but I plan to whittle away at it here and there and make a nice-ish beater out of it. However, there is a good chance it'll grow on me and end up being a little nicer than originally intended. OR I'll fix it and flip it. Only time will tell.

It's even got a floor shifter so you can race it

Looks like a perfect winter DD to me.

Word. I already have a winter beater but this will be a nice upgrade. Kinda depends on the weather and everything whether or not I get it done this winter.

Perhaps. I'll inquire the next time I see him.

Thanks Jake! I ordered new rotors and pads all the way around a little while ago. Looks like the weather will be becoming more seasonal shortly too.

This thing is running/driving/legal/on the road. I'm keeping the Feminem wheels unless something else comes along. It had broken sway bar links in the front that I just fixed. It needs shocks real bad and I need to find a power mirror switch and a passenger side power window switch for cheap. Remounted the rear view mirror. Not that it really matters. Can't see shit through the dark tint. lol next is trying to finally get the power seats sorted. The drivers side seat needs to go back I don't care if I have to break some shit.

Nope. Because those idiots are too scared to post members trucks in that thread, and the head moron of that thread doesn't want to believe he is on a forum of hacked and ugly trucks.
