Im not sure on any details about it yet, i only looked at it for about 30 seconds and it was locked but i got it from the guy for $50 i dont know what if anything is wrong with it, he told me that it just stopped running one day on the highway and wouldent start so he just parked it and that was like a year ago, so im gonna go check it out tomorrow.

anything that i should be aware of when i check it out?

Anything specific that i should look for?

ill get some pics of it tomorrow too.

Dont worry about it and just buy it. If the body is straight its worth more than $50.

I should be getting my RX in a week or so... we'll need to go play in the fresh snow :)

Aye sounds like timing belts and a good score! If you part it out by all means I have a list already made of stuff I need for mine.

yea i cant argue for $50 its got 192K on it so im thinking that i might just throw in the good running motor from my GL-10 and maybe rebuild the motor thats in the RX right now.
