I'm driving it to central IL this Saturday so if you want to meet up to make the deal happen, PM me!
Good salesman here ladies and gents, But that'* a northern car... This car has obviously never seen salt, and from the condition of the underside, i doubt it'* seem many mud puddles.

I found a history code 21 TPS High, Nothing to worry about, But I played it up, You guys do know that when that codes goes it'* usually the shorted out wire on the interior firewall right? The one you have to take out the dash for.... Yeah.

His insurance is taking their time getting him the money, They decided the truck was totalled and they can't even hurry tf up... But anyway... Negotiations are in the process. Of course it'd first stop when He gets it will be my shed to put his Pioneer DEH-9600 and assorted speakers in the car... I thought ahead and told him to strip the truck out before it went in for body repairs, Good thing he did....

Oh, that TPS wire is a BIATCH. You have to have the dealer'* special tool (the one they won't loan you) and dealer labor rates run over 1400 to strip the dash and get to that wire.

I feel for ya man

LMFAO! Play it up, Straitor.

'Lil off topic....

That good salesmanship worked! I sold it tonight for $1,700. The guy didn't even talk me down. I guess keeping it in excellent mechanical condition and very good cosmetic condition paid off.

Good luck with your southern ride...

Yea, and the retro-incabulator. I sure hope you checked that, or your logarythmic casing could be shot also. Never hurts to check the mazer vanes, either. If they're dirty or clogged, it could be causing higher-than-normal cytosoidal depleneration rates. That'* bad, by the way. And God help you if the dingle arms go...

Okay, I'll stop now :P
