the floor upholstery is in the trunk. dirty, but in fairly good shape.

thanks for the encouraging words about it. It has what I'm hoping is a fairly simple fuel delivery issue. I'll drive it around for a while and will likely have to thin the herd back down.

On tape the 300D does sound pretty good, doesn't it...makes me wonder why I've ventured into the gasser realm

I think you got a good deal on it. The car isn't bad at all.

Now just work on getting it running. Hopefully it will be reliable enough so you can drive it the GTG.

spent some time on it yesterday and found the throttle linkage to be seized up. I sprayed it down with WD40 to see if I could get the parts moving, but it looks like I will need to take it apart and polish each piece. The gas pedal seems to not function correctly. Not sure if it's just because of the linkage...or maybe the PO kept trying to press it with the linkage stuck causing something to get bent.
