    Ok, I've got to give up drinking............... :1drink .............. I kinda like the BMBaru. :D
    Very reliable engine, except for rear main seals, they seem to go forever.
    Has it got the stock points ignition or '84 on transistorized?
    Distributor maintenance looks challenging................
    Now where did my beer go................. :wink:
