If it was in Phoenix and I got my bonus it would be very tempting to get for a wild street car. Good thing it isn't, I DON'T NEED another car.  ::)

Perhaps not, but it doesn't hurt to dream a little, does it?

All I had better say for the moment is we are making a road trip to Tucson later today.
Nothing set in stone yet. The 74 and the Mustang might be goners. Can't have 4 project cars, don't really have room for 2. But they both may be donors before they are goners.

Dwayne, I have not told Karen that you encouraged me. She still likes you.  ;D

Well, it isn't for sale anymore.
Yes, I am insane.
Yes, I bought it. $700 delivered to my house.
He even had it listed on the Facebook version of this site at one point.
At this point I am going to stick with I got lucky.
Comes with most of the small stuff.
I'll have to inventory everything once it gets home
 That could be this Monday or next Sunday.
Really looks solid.
Pics to come after I get it home.
Setup for the fox mustang 2.3 rear sump, it's what he ran.
Car's been sitting for about 20 years.

Thanks,
