Originally posted by Pontiac_Birds_Nest I would like to get new tires and wheels but doesn't look like it will happen. This trip alone will cost roughly 1500. You guys all rob banks or something to afford to do all this stuff to your vehicles? So much I would like to do, but isn't going to happen I am still trying to decide what car to bring, the 79 would be more fun but also more costly and not sure if it would make it through the whole trip. The 01 bird would be more gas friendly, I guess will see when time comes....huh
Originally posted by chumbrother I dont think we have any thevies here, but then again this is The Bandit Run yes, these trips cost sum moolah, and some are doing very well,(finacially) others (like me) wondering when the next dollar will fall from the tree. some of us can do all our own repairs,but parts still cost. as for your cars, take the one which will cost you the least amount and be reliable,you dont have to prove anything to anyone here. great bunch of peeps
Originally posted by JustinRuiz85 The car is at body and paint, should be done in mid December. After tax season get engine and tranny redone. Then send interior off to my friends parents to reupholster. New audio, and rims and tires, and redesign hood bird, get Super Chicken lettering for spoiler. Hopefully can join day 3 of the bandit run, outta Tennessee.
Originally posted by 1tinindian I need to maybe look into a laeky pinion seal and change the rear end lube.
Double check CB install and make sure it's going to work.
Most all the things will be checked out when I get it ouat storage and drive it to the dealership and put it up on my lift. (The guys at work are drawn to it like moths to a flame!)
I can't wait to drive my old friend once again.
