There is nothing major wrong with it. It has a few typical small issues that I am working through. The guy I bought it from really needed the money so I jumped on it. I am very happy with the deal I got on it. Last major issue I need to fix is the cruise control. I replaced the cruise amp with a used one last night and it did not fix anything. Any one have any other ideas? I am converting the A/C which currently blows cold back to R-12 this weekend. I have a new drier and expansion valve. R-134 is cold, just not as cold as it should be. If the car has been parked inside all day and the interior is cool, I have no problem keeping the temp inside the car very comfortable on a 100 degree day. If the car has been sitting outside however, it takes allot longer to cool it down. I think by fixing the vacuum pod in the dash to make air blow out of center vents only and the R-12, it should do the job just fine. I moved my Blazer to the 3rd car garage and gave the 300CD a place in the main garage next to the hybrid

The value of a car is what someone is willing to pay for it. To me it's worth between 4X and 6X what you paid.

Drive it like you stole it, because.............YOU DID!

Thanks for all the info. I'm very excited about it (like you could'nt tell)! I'm gonna try mixing some home brew pretty soon and see how she runs. $60 to fill it up is a killer!
