I still think you should assemble the Jag more to reduce the intimidation factor (without worrying about restoration) and sell it to finance the projects you like more...

Maybe.

But I'm not so sure that that would be cost-effective. The Jag has about zero resale value at this point, even if it was restored.

I was thinking just straight labor -- no new parts, repainting, etc -- just take all the bags labeled in Russian or whatever and just assemble the car and sell it.

How much work does the Jag need?

Chris

Let's just say that it's a "kit" at this point. :AH-HA_wink:

BP: Some degree of what you suggest may be what I'll do.

Not for sure just yet, but the moment I order a stainless bolt kit for it the truck is no longer for sale.

A lot of Vendors are going out of biz with the economy, in both the sport compact and resto markets.

Posted a "last chance to buy it" ad on CL today.

I'll give it a week at most, then I'm diving in.

My "last chance" ad generated a couple of calls, so who knows?

But I still expect that I'll end-up finishing the truck.

It's the one way you can get the HD truck you really want, without loans or anything else.

Would make one heck of a tow rig when that low miles 72 becomes a race car.....or the Jag breaks down....

Yeah, I certainly have plans on how I'll use it if I end up finishing it.

I'm thinking about a large slide-in camper among other things.

...and the Jag doesn't need to break - it's already down.

A slide in camper would be a fantastic idea....although I like the idea of a vintage Airstream to pull behind it.

Insted of you and me and a dog named boo...it would be You and Zora and a dog named Arkus....

Keep us posted, bob.

I've considered the Airstream idea many times.

That said, the notion of those two dogs in any RV frankly scares me!

I'll post any news.

I'll take that as a sign...that some day I can come get a certain stalled El Camino project at a reasonable price! Can't do anything right now, but....
