If you want to be trouble free, go with the 4bbl. If you want "the look", fight the Stromberegs for who knows how long. Certainly there will guys...
Settle down, fella, that crap will be waitin for you tomorrow.
There are price guides, but I find them iffy. Craig's list and E-bay will give you an idea about asking (not getting) prices. That is a whole lot...
