Its off to Wyoming thanks to the classified ads on this sight.
Kind of hard to let it go. I had it around longer then the X. Just never got to put that boss 302 in it like i always wanted to do.

I'm sure someone will want to know the price I sold it for.
Original owner - 9650 miles. I honored my offer of 10 grand to anyone on this sight. Cost 1444 to ship to Wyoming. I chipped in 300 to have it shipped from here to NJ to the shipping companies yard. He hopes to have it delivered before xmas.

Doubt I'll ever have another T/C seeing how I just sold the best one around. Merry Christmas to all. bobbymac

Bobby, glad you found it a good home. Equally glad you never removed its heart and installed a V8 - anybody can have a V8!

Good luck in your future automotive endeavours!

Thanks guys. Its condolences for sure. I look at the bare spot on my drive way and it still brings tears to my eyes, as writing this does. Cant help it, I loved that little car.
Should have, would have, could have, but I didn't. Just couldn't bare to see it out side setting in the drive way after losing its garage to three motor cycles. Ya I know I must be nuts at 70 to still be riding a bike......

What I remember best was, besides it beauty, was that long nose, and when you opened the hood you didn't have to prop it open with a steel rod.

I would like this to be known to all. A vehicle coming from the north east, especially Long Island, has absolutely no reason to have rust whether kept in a garage or a daily driver. When driven in the winter on salty or in white salty powder or a 4x4 on the beach, just make sure the bottom is hosed down underneath even in 20 dee weather. Never owned a rust bucket even after 25 years of owning it.
Thanks again, bobbymac

I feel your pain. This must have been a tough decision for you. I give you congratulations or condolences whichever is appropriate but I assume that condolences will be more appropriate as time goes on.

I have no garage. Just make sure it's waxed twice a year, did some rustproofing, and keep it under a California cover in winter.

Well Bobby

Like we chatted about before...if you want to modify a TC(which recommend) your super low mileage survivor wasnt the find yourself a nice $4000 car and go to town.
