Description: I bought her with around 80k miles on the odo, and now shes got 290k... Was used as transportation when I was a 7 state territory rep. Now she likes gravel roads, mountain twisty's, and hwy trips to the big city (Atlanta). The speedometer is broken, the tires are larger than original leading to incorrect odo readings (less than actual), and shes a hot mess in regards to oil/exhaust leaks. BUT she'll pull a down tree, accelerate off the line, and cruise at speed just like she was new... She's just a little more thirsty now
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Installed tube intake and XL cone filter, saw hwy jump from 17mpg to 22mpg, those increases are a thing of the past though. Taller tires keep rpm's down and increase distance traveled.

Planned Mods: Rework intake, remove tire from roof , electric fan upgrade (if I can do it cheap), organize and put recovery/emergency gear on a diet, hitch mounted kammback???
