I had been keeping my eyes open for a wagon...but another deal came my direction.<p>I did get my Camaro sold. I think I mentioned that.<p>I was given a 91 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. All I had to do was "get it out of there". It had been sitting for 4 years. I put in a starter, new gas, and drove it away. In the past 2 weeks since having it, I've had an entire exhaust put on, new torque converter, flywheel, u-joints, driveshaft balanced, and new wiper blades. It took two hours to wash it...just wash it, no wax, and it looks pretty darn good again. Very minimal rust...in fact, not even noticeable until you're on the car and then on minor surface. I have new brake pad and rotors waiting to install. A set of tires will come next.<p>I'm not completely out of the market for a wagon, just had to make a move. So far I have only $1500 wrapped up in the Jeep and really don't expect to add much more.<p>Now I can let the S70 rest a bit. It will soon be kept in the garage and pulled out for family trips and the occasional throttle work out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>This also means I can start making my own little additions. hehehehe.<p>

Re: Had to sell out guys... (OilAnalyst)

You bum <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Well....if I was given a car I'd probably take it too. Nice job for only $1500 to get it up and running after 4 years.<p>Mike is working on my (your future) wagon right now at his house. Putting on sway bars and side markers.

Re: Had to sell out guys... (soledoc)

My front suspension certainly isn't what is used to be. I'll be replacing it soon...might as well upgrade!
