Back when I was in college I went to Boise one year for spring break with my room mate at the time. We rode dirt bikes in the mountains, took out his snow mobiles and hit up the town at night. It was a very cool scene up there and pretty much endless scenery!

I agree with this but the chicks are all... well, kinda off. Hanging in old town Boise is awesome. The drinks are cheap, the music is good, and during the weekend the "alternate" scenery is great albeit crazy.

I found a wrecked 98 with 80,000 mi for $800 for the whole thing. Now I just need to go look at it.

I see that BJ's off road is all over the place on FSJ sites, they any good?
I DO have a tree siddy sitting around.

What I'm planning is to rebuild the one thats sitting on the stand, and remove the 1987 engine thats in the truck now.

The one thats in there now has something silly like 160k miles on it, but my oil pressure is 50PSI on the highway and 10-15 at idle with 30 weight when its warm.

The engine thats on the stand right now was about 10psi idle, and about 30psi on the highway with 50 weight hahaha. whoopsies! Had some bottom end noise.

If i rebuild that one next year, you're welcome to the one thats in my truck now. I got it for $200 and its been a hell of a runner!

Bump up to 50 weight if you need to. Its all good.

Nah, I'm good... Just got done driving a pretty mint '65 mustang fastback across town. I'm thinking maybe an old rotary would do me better now.

Anyone want a project? This can be yours. A little older then 65. Runs kinda drives. There is a body shop across the street from our office and they store cars with us occasionally. I guess the guy bought it unseen thinking it just needed paint. The floor is almost gone and someone did the crappiest roof repair I've ever seen on a car. Owner doesn't have the funds so he is trying to sell it. Pretty cool though.

If I had the coin, that would be in my garage! That thing is badass!

Yes, what's their asking price. My friend that could bring those axles down next week is actively in the market for something similar to that. Last I heard he was talking about heading to Oregon to look at one. He'll be in town next weekend and we'd possibly come look at it depending on the asking price?

It's the same friend that I posted pictures of a while back of his Rover that he restored. He's actively shopping for the next donor car...

Ill ask today. I guess the guy bought it via Internet auction at $6000 then paid $1000 for transport. My guess would be 7k but I know I wouldn't pay 7 for it. Ill post the price later today.
