Hoping you guys can help me weigh pros and cons with your superior experience.
I'm looking at two prospects (with two more on the back burner).
One is local to me--an '81 Imp that is largely rust free top and bottom. FI replaced with Edelbrock 4 bll and intake. Could use some hood paint (peeling) and a couple touch up spots. Daystar Blue. He wants $5.2 k
The other is a '76 Aspen wagon. Saddle tan. 318/727. It is far away in Nevada but has the benefit of being California/NV all its life. Clean up, down. Zero rust on subframe or body. Owner says "everything" has been gone through, and it needs nothing. $6k and I reckon it wouldlikely be 1,500 for shipping.
Now, from my original post, you'll recall this irresponsible slob wants to subject a nice FMJ to daily driver use. Though I'm semi-retired now. Still, I mean to underspray the piss out of it and keep going in the winter. My driveway/garage simply won't allow a beater and an FMJ. So this is it. The way I reckon, we're in the last decade or so for ICE vehicles anyway, and I'm going to have my fun. Other prospects include a 5A, a Gran Fury and a Dip--all rust free and within 500 miles for under $4k. Comments?
