Fix yours. 3.1 head gaskets are pretty straight forward. It'* really not that bad.

i doubt that all it'll need is the tank repaired. something that old will require maintence (some expensive) like your current vehicle.

Option #3.
Buy the Honda, keep the 6000, save pennies for a L67/4T65E-HD swapout from Ed Morad...
