Very good point.

I know of an unlocked 97 80 for possible sale with only 64k miles... I left the guy my number today and maybe he wants to sell it now... I did this with you in mind, Daniel, just to make things more difficult!

I spent all day organizing my sizable collection of VW Thing parts. I am putting the Thing and all the parts up for sale. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dmarkofsky/ If you think Cruiser parts are expensive.....

Sold it last week. I did not ask price. They have a "builder block" ("man, it smokes man") for $650.

Good suggestion though. I would have made an offer though, $2k is not worthwhile for me.

Hmm, but not too likely because it probably needs a HG anyway, but will explore. THANKS!

Dan

I'm in a similar boat. I've a 97 I picked up at 200K and now 240K. Its been great up until recently and has been burning oil for quite some time. Losing some power under load and diagnosed with appears to be' leaky values' on #5 and #6
The truck did have a super-charger on it before and had a HG done at 90K (values checked but not red-one)

So I could continue as-is and take it 'easy' but not sure how long this will take me. I could get HG redone, values etc.. and should last 100-150K?
Was planning on doing a rebuild around 350K (or as needs be)
Truck body and rest in good shape and was planning on keeping for quiet some time (world 4x4 trip planned in a few yrs)

However don't have the molla to do a full rebuild now so considering just a HG/value 'fix' for 100-150K. Is that worth it?
Any other options

Tomorrow the flatbed arrives to take my 80 to Robbie for him to work his magic and I get back to working hard to pay for it all, knowing how lucky I am to have Robbie close by.
