  1. Mmmm.... the bidding closed. Not the same as it being bought. I hope I am wrong, but any bets on whether it is funded and actually closed? Of course, looks like a $5,000 penalty if not so likely its a done deal.
  2. Slavs: I know. And you won’t pay market price for chrome, seals, or any of the other NLA parts because people want more than they were selling for new 50 years ago. 🙂 26K is perfectly reasonable for what appears to be a solid driver. With the 2.0 mated to a 5 speed. The body looks pretty straight. The carpet is new’ish. I don’t like cloth seats but those look to be in good shape. All that, AND a sun roof. I mean come on. I bought mine for 11k, but well more than that into it, and while I prefer mine to that one on BAT, 25K is about what you are in to buy a basic driver and then get it spiffed out. The money, then all the time to do it. Someone is wanting something turn key that is ‘good enough’ and put a smile on their face now. Not two or three years from now while it sits in the garage while they tinker at night. If it ever gets done. Time is worth money too. I once once wringing my hands over a particular boat and wanting to hold out for one about 10k less. I told my buddy about this, then he told me: You know, I used to think like that, then I realized all the time I was losing with my family I could have enjoying with it in the meantime and realized it was not worth the money I thought I was saving. I went out and bought the boat next day. Best thing I ever did. The fun we had with it that summer was wroth many times more than the money I was trying save. So okay, you wouldn’t pay 5k for it. (Not trying to pick Slavs.). How much would you pay for what you want, then how much time and money would it take to get it how you want. Cheers. PS: That vgaetajr is a douche nozzle though. Total poser. He thinks he is scaring people off. That, or his is some 15 year old sitting in his room and will stand up the seller. Just sayin’
  3. I think it’s color dependent. On my Verona car. I like it better with the body color. On your white car, I do not think it is even a close comparison. Go with the black. You will not go back
  4. Polyurethane bushings installed all around last year. Immediately the front bushings creeked like an old rocking chair. Brought back to Patrick, he lubed them and fixed the problem. Now, rear is creaking like an old wooden chair. I sprayed “penetrating“ grease into all the bushings the best I could and it did not solve the problem. This must be a repetitive issue. Can anyone help with a bit of quick direction. From the sound in location, I think it is a big ass one that is right in front of the wheel welll. Many thanks.
  5. ooooooo.... roundie elitism. I will concede, before I bought I would have preferred a roundie. But after much searching, a square tail is what I found. You can’t pick your kids, but you love them with all their foibles. You can pick you wife though... i will say though, I can put a beer on my bumper while working on it. Do that on a roundie! 😎
  6. Could not get the exposure correct in darn phone. Looks wet in real life. Wish the lighting was always like that.
  7. Just roll them or have someone do it for you and get it over with. Doesn’t effect the look. Silly having that razor lip stock anyway. Does not do anything.
  8. Ok. Here’s an ignorant question. When I was in high school I had a bug and new I had to adjust the valves every 1500 omiles or so. Do we do this on these?
  9. What?????? You mean my car does not have only 25,000 miles on it ? 😂
  10. That hydro was built in the 60’s. There was a company back east that made kits. Not in business any more but they come up on ebay from Time to time which is where I bought that one. Had to do a lot of work to it. Here is a better picture. Post stain, and other wood work, but pre urethane. Is shiny now. Going to finish off with old style hydro graphics.
