Default time to go look at a '74 Thing fs...

oooooooh
12000km on a rebuild
in storage for 15 years
needs paint
recently tuned up

hope this shit is good and sells cheap - it's an auction type sale.

time to grab a coffee and go... & ah well, at least in any condition it's worth only 3.5hours sleep to go see one :p considering they only brought those mofo's over here in 1973 and 1974.

shit.

sold for too much

was gonna buy it and flip it if it was good.

mechanically sound, needs paint & some bodywork and some of the floor to be cut out/welded in etc - not to mention reupholstering and so on - but it ran nice!


it SHOULD have sold for <$2500cdn - if it did, i'd have bid.

it was a church auction.. car was donated - fundraiser for a youth mission to mexico. (i bet the little shits aren't building houses and teaching farming/english, but rather - going to get right shit faced on cheap tequila:p)

it ended up selling for $3275cdn - which wouldn't have been too bad a price if i could do the major work myself for a couple hundred bucks and then flip it - but i don't have the skillset(s) or tools required. paying a shop to do the work would have gotten ridiculously expensive & then made it a really dumbass investment for resale.

i did buy a 4 channel 60watt blaupunkt stereo amp for $1cdn though lol - it's gonna power some of the cheapest paper 6x9's money can buy i tell ya!:p
