Well, my goal is to have a running, driving, stopping, presentable truck for my wedding date on July 28th next year. The budget is as lean as I can make it without doing anything half-assed... I have to work budget consciously but not cheap out if it's going to be a detriment in the long run. Oh, and one other thing, while perusing the local craigslist looking for olds parts I found a guy that has a 55 Super 88 Holiday 4 Door hard top here in town that his wife's parents bought brand new. He's looking to sell but the car hasn't run in about four years. His ad was soliciting to help him market and sell it for a commission, as well as doing the tune up to get it running again... So I went and looked at the car and it's not as nice as he described. I'm going to have him bring it over here and I'll spend some time getting it running. Seeing as this car is still factory and everything is where it's supposed to be I think the normal tune up items should work fine. I don't anticipate near the headaches that I've had with my 56 motor. We'll see. It'll be nice to have a totally virgin rocket to look at and reference. Mine is missing so much in terms of linkages fittings... At least when I need a part I'll be able to post a pic and say without a doubt I need this or that specifically! I may also ask you guys opinion on what this car could conceivably be worth, or at least a fair place to start the negotiations. Truth be told if I had the cash and the extra room I'd try to buy it from him. More on that later.
