    My buddy bought one from a guy locally. They are built fucking tough but some do have problems. Usually if you buy one cheap you should expect to put a little bit of work into them, especially if they have a lot of miles on them.

    We replaced the gaskets on the exhaust manifold last weekend, heavy son of a bitch.

    Goddamn my wife would KILL me. The worst surprise I ever gave her was driving home a $250 1974 BMW 3.0s. At least that was a car :rofl:

    I has one but got it at the local .gov auction. I got the deuce which was a red ex-firefighter brush truck, and the jeep. Painted the deuce with a ton of green paint and painted some stars on it. Both run great, jeep's getting a freshening up this summer.

    I want one, I'd love to see the neighbors reactions. I am already in suburbia with a 3500 Diesel Dodge, if I parked one of those in the driveway too. . . maybe someday when I am more settled and I live on more than .5 acres.

    There was a semi local auction that I was going to bid on, but wrote down the wrong closing time and missed it. I would love to have one.

    I assume you need a CDL to drive one of these on the road?
