Yeah, the 79 going to EFI needs another $600 in parts. Custom oil cooler lines and so on. Just never ends LOL

Dianne,
What color yellow is this?
Thanks,
Russ

Yeah it's like triage. I have to decide what gets money first. Want the Blazer done first then finish the 79 glass back and 73 wagon. The King Cobra just gets pushed out more and more. I have to thin the herd, don't want to lose anything though :(

just an option for the earlier plan of sticking a A4LD behind the Pinto 2.0.
I did manage to find a flexplate, (very rusty) torque converter and bellhousing, they were offered to me by Mark, a member of sierrascorpioc lub.nl after me posting a request. He wants about $ 45.-- for it, but the pain comes when you add shipping cost, it will get nearer to $ 200,--, if the weight exceeds 44 lbs even more...
So if you really need these exotic parts, it can be arranged, if not, everybody just admire the images!

Thought I would post on here for those of you that knew Dianne. I am the one that acquired her yellow 73 wagon and I absolutely love it. I drive it almost daily. Working on trying to find some side mirrors, seat belts and lots of random interior parts. I plan on keeping it "stock" and just wanted to let you all know I was continuing where she left off. I didn't know her but come to find out we do have some common friends and it sounds like she was a wonderful person. I hope she is smiling down on me as I attempt to put the interior back in this beautiful car!

Looks great, almost new , make sure you get some fender covers so if you have to work on the engine you don't scratch the new paint 😎
