I had pretty much written off getting this thing because I expected him to keep it untill he died, but he surprised me a month ago when he told me that he was finally ready to let it go. There were a couple stipulations on the sale (NO ROCK CRAWLING with it) but I'm cool with that.
I wanted something from that era- either full size or EB with a big block that would limit my activities to weekend cruising and the dunes and this is definately that. I'm not too worried about the fuel milage as this will strictly be a weekend warrior toy. If I don't have the $$$, I just won't take it out.
I am very excited to get this thing up to the dunes Labor Day weekend though- and have something that I can just drive in and not worry about a parking spot for the trailer for a change!!!!
