Hello all,

I just picked up this beauty off craigslist for a paltry $500. It runs and drives great with only 115k original miles (yes, the odometer still works) put on it by the original owner who I purchased it from. It came with all of the original booklets and owners manual as well. Yee haw!

Whoa!! That's a beauty! Great score! Those exporters are getting a bit slow at their game. Those usually get bought up pretty quickly. Wish I could find a great deal like this my side of the country

I don't know how I missed this, or why I just now stumbled onto it. But wow, what a nice score! I hope you'll post a few more pictures.

Keep watching craigslist and you might come across a gem! I just got lucky with finding this one. I did a complete service on it today with new filters (oil, fuel, air) and an oil change. Also bought tires today as well. I have an appointment at my mechanic's to get other stuff done like ball joints, timing belt, trans and diff seals. It really isn't a big deal to work on these, but I don't have a garage or a shop to do it in....sigh

@arrowmntdiesel: Thanks! Do you ever see my previous red Chevy LUV Diesel down there in Oregon? I sold it to a kid who lived in the Portland area.

@luvcamas: When and where is the pup meet? I have to work on Saturdays, but I have Sunday and Monday off.
