Well here we go.Just bought her at a Copart auction and I love her already.Has a 6v92TA with a 5 speed manual.Some rust but nothing I can't handle and she's half converted.Some inside and outside work "kind of redo and lots of myway".lol I gave $2500.00 for her and I'm thinking to have about $10,000.00 by the time I call it the 6th day.lol Don't get me wrong,I love all the real nice converstions.But this is a tight budget but she'll make her daddy proud.I'll be putting some picture's on along the way. See you soon.Larry.

Inquiring minds want to know: What is a "copart auction?"

CoPart is a vehicle auction company. Mostly they offer vehicles that have been bought by insurance companies after a claim. I think they do some regular liquidation too. They have some great prices from time to time but in most cases you have to have a dealers license to bid. There have been a number of vehicles I would have liked to have bid on if I knew someone with a license.

In some cases, anyone with an account can bid. But I have found that those are not usually the ones with the best prices. Anyone can sign up for an account...
