So I went and looked at this second gen and it seems pretty good. Rust isn't too bad, runs and drives okay. Had no trouble keeping up with 70mph traffic. Doesn't have a muffler which is annoying, and the driver's seat is from a different car.

Also, it had a bit of dieseling when I shut it off...if I do get it I plan on getting the carb and idle adjusted (the idle seemed very high to me) as well as the ignition timing. I also plan on giving it a good seafoaming and maybe some steam cleaning in the cylinders.

Hopefully if it's dieseling because of carbon deposits that will fix it.

The only thing now is to sell my Crown Vic so I can buy it. If anyone wants it or knows someone who want a good running crown vic wagon let me know. I'm only asking $800 (exactly what I talked the Celica owner down to). If the Vic sells in the next couple days, I might even try to make it to the Dragon...

Don't need the 'vic, but if you're gonna make it to the dragon, lemme know.

I'm planning on leaving, thursday evening, but i can change that, if you wanna tag along.

There is a clean second gen on the Louisville CL for sale for $750.

I want it.

Dammit! If it were a manual and running I'd leap on it.... Even if it were just running, I'd probably be able to live with an auto...

I was looking for a 2nd gen coupe, but that one is nice...too bad it's about twice what I can spend. Thanks for looking, though.
