as stated by so many others, it was one of those parts houses....ok for some things, but not my first choice by far. glad you got it sorted, though.

bought an ugly ti today. (cue the ti jokes in 3,...2,..)

i like to think of it as a rescue. poor thing is in such need of attention. it's been modded by an 'audio engineer'... but, will drag ithome and see what i can make of it. it's going to be a swap candidate, anyway, so it'll be one of my longer term projects.

perhaps even a sbc v8 swap?? dunno yet....paint is new, but horrible. interior is shot. offered a fair price over the phone if it was a viable candidate, got there and it wasn't, so i went to walk away. he stated he'd take 500 for it, just wants it gone. i'll need to get a trailer to get it home, though. unless i can get to the mvc to get it tagged up. we'll see. gonna be busy monday....
