The other deal im looking at is a wrecked 1989 chevy truck tbi 350... body's F'ED UP but I can still drive it home for 500 bucks. I have to bring the transmission back to the guy. The odometer reads 445,000 and I've seen it run with no smoke or tick knocks. leaking alittle water out of thermo housing...

LOL, 445,000 miles? Are you in a great need of scrap steel or something? the engine isn't worth more than the price of scrap. If it ain't under 100,000 miles don't even waste your time looking at it- unless of course you just need a core to tear apart and rebuild.
