He used an electric wench, some steel skids, and heavy duty PVC pipe as a roller for the front. He had it on the trailer in a matter of minutes once everything was in place.

95naSTA, I would be saying the same thing if I lived up north. But since Florida cars typically don't rust at all (if they are cared for), I didn't bat an eye when I started stripping it. Aside from a few dents and dings, the body was perfect. Even the suspension components still wear the original black paint, and could be cleaned easily with some WD40.

Wow, talk about stripped. Looks like you left it parked over night in the wrong neighborhood.

Sorry about your 'loss' though.

The "hot ticket" items are mostly gone already...lights, a few interior pieces, and ignition system to name a few. There are a few obscure parts that are making their way to other members too. But I still have quite a bit left over...VATS module, keyless entry module, twilight module, stereo amp, steering column...and other stuff too.

But here is the simple truth to it all...I'm just plain gettin' tired of wrenchin'. After the engine started gettin' all twitchy, I couldn't justify keeping it around anymore. I SHOULD have stopped after the transmission rebuild, but hindsight is 20/20. Now, I have 2 cars that are under warranty and should last quite a while with little intervention from me. The gold SSE may find a new home in a few days, and I won't be upset if it does.
