That'* an awesome offer, thank you. We can find a place for you either at Casa de randman'* or if you prefer a motel. The cars will be in Holyoke (Exit 4 off of I-90) for the mechanical work and back home for the oodles of electrical work once it starts and runs. I'm going on a cruise begining April 27 and returning May 4. Before I go, I'll probably just be taking off parts to be sold and finalizing the game plan but the serious work will start when I get back.

Again, thanks for your offer to help. I'm sure it will be needed.

Randy and Jimmy....I might have the guest room finished ....ok...I haven't started yet...but Jimmy...there'* a ton of room at my place too. Forget the motel. I'm about 10 minutes from the Randman.

Randy....Do you have air tools over there or is this strictly a wrenching project?

Unless I can commandeer a generator to run the comperssor it will be a wrenching event. I don't think there is any electricity nearby in be buddy'* lot

Ah, that won't be too bad to ship.

It was found at Copart which is dealer salvage auction. I'll know more in a couple of hours. I'm leaving around 10 am to pick it up and I brought my camera too.

I picked the donor car up this afternoon. It fired up after cranking a bit longer than it should have but I'm not sure how long it was sitting around. I drove it out of the auction lot in order to hook it up to the tow truck and it sounded, felt and moved like it should. Here'* some pics:

I have found homes for most of the interior parts in my 93. My dash is cracked but the tan color is lighter in the 97 than in the 93 so that means that the whole interior is going in. There'* not many body parts worth a damn except the rear doors, right headlight and tail light assembly. Once I'm done sorting through the electronics, they will be available for sale.
