    Im picking it up Friday afternoon. It has a rebuilt 350 V8, less than 250 miles on it. Needs new interior and paint job, has some rust but I drove it the other day and loved it. Im trading my 88 Mercedes 300E (hate working on this car) for it. Ill have pics ASAP, cant wait!

    bad places to look out for..

    trunk - they like to get holes at the spring mounts.
    floor - where the frame connects to the body.. like to develop holes there as well.

    I had a 77 and it wasn't a very pretty car after a few years of neglecting the problem areas. But I loved that car and at this very moment wish I never got rid of it.

    Congrats.

    The trunk is rusty, no holes that Ive found though. Rest of the car was ok when I checked it out, Ill be replacing the carpet so Ill check for rust there. Drove it for about an hour, instantly had to have it.

    I had a 74 and I loved it as well. Too bad some old hag ran a stop sign and Tboned it.

    Let see those pics.
