Brought home another one today

Through my neighbors grandson who sold me the VW, had mentioned that his neighbor was moving and had a dodge dakota sitting that he needed gone. Price: free. done, show me the way to it!

Its clean, no major rust or body damage. Told at first that the engine in it was junk but he had another engine for it. Turns out the engine "started running like total garbage so I parked it and was gonna throw in this bigger different engine in it".

Whatever i'll check it out first before I start re engineering the dang thing. Some starter fluid and fresh gas and the sumbitch started right up and drove into the shop under its own power. Certainly gonna need a carb rebuild and some other tune up items but its good to go already, and for sitting for the last 7 years im surprised it came to life so easily.






starting to fill up finally!

This one should be easy. All it needs is a carb rebuild since it will not hold an idle, I can keep it running otherwise by holding on the go pedal. clean the interior, basic crap and sell.

yes it is. I got the scoop on an auction yard that sells every 3rd saturday of the month, and Its not very well known to the general public but its a public auction. I may end up flipping the bug too and taking m cash down there and see if i can pick me up a old 6.0. Ever since I had to trade mine in for my wifes jeep Ive been dreaming of having another.

I need to do some flipping. There are a ton of low $$ cars and trucks here and plenty of folks needing low $$ transportation for winter/school. Just need to stay under the max. # of vehicles/year to not need a license. (shouldn't be an issue for how fast I work)
