Looks cool, and the price looks good... depending on what "needs tune-up" means. That statement always opens some doors. Plugs, wires and carb clean? Ok. Bent pushrods, squishy lifters and 40 psi in a few cylinders? Hmmm.

I do love it though and would probably scoop it in any case.

Cheers,
Erik

Rode down to Colorado Springs today to pick up my new-to-me van from Neduro. 7.3 Powerstroke Turbo Diesel is even better than I remembered from driving it during the '07 Baja 1000. I. Am. Stoked.

Congrats on the new toy. Any cool setup on the interior?

Just carpeted walls and ceiling, and a passenger bench, with bike tie-downs in back. Simple. I'm going to think about a few ideas.

Just kidding honey.
