so i'll ask... why are u heart broken ?????
ok the reason my heart was broken, a buddy of mine offered me a truck for 300. 78 scottsdale chevy, 2wd, Stepside bed(love a stepside) which he said was running. But he also has his own 72 pick up used it on it.. So he just recently laughed at me and said you know the only reason im givin it to you so cheap is because the carbs off and the brakes and tires are crap. I was angered. I was thinking bout telling this guy id give him junk price 150. Of coarse he wouldnt want to take that offer. Were real good buddys too i dont understand why he laughed at it.
