Oh, so you have a swap spot.  Will the wagon be in the space?  The wagon is not for sale is it?
Will you just have Pinto parts for sale?

OUCH!!!

Nah, I think it's worth it, all the other charges for lodging and gas were worth his trip, I'm sure. In my case, I'll >easily< have over $5k in my '76 wagon once it's done. Of course, it's a ground up restoration, and not cheap!

Yeah, those costs to bring something home have stopped me cold on some killer deals.

The 76 will have some primered spots by then.  It is not fair to the spectators to show a car in that condition. ::)

Way to go Yelby. My dad used to say $500 in tires and wheels on a $500 car is what keeps the economy going.
