I am HOOKED!!!!

I can't stop the habit...I know everyone else has the same problem. I get approached by a fellow co-worker about a problem with his car. After a few minutes of talking he decides that he would rather sell it than fix it. So now I find myself curious as to what he is wanting to get out of it...I am going to go make a deal this weekend with him.
1985 Monte Carlo...Black ext/Grey int. V6/Auto....very clean car, no rust,runs great.
What is wrong with it? Torque Converter is bad ...I have never heard of a TC 'going' bad but that is what the trans shop has given him an estimate to fix/replace. He said that it drives/shifts fine but makes a lot of noise(ticking) in the trans.
I looked up a couple of different sites about common MC problems and TC failure was listed right up there towards the top of the list.
Price you ask.... $200.00 and a new TC in the trunk
Later,
WEIMER

Is there any way you could talk the guy in to coming over to your house and jacking the car up for you and while your under the car tell him to stick around and hand you tools? hehehe
Is a full tank of gas out of the question? hehehe

Would you be interested in selling it when you get it fixed? I need another car.
