Yah Mark still has the V8Q. I think he paied like
$5,500 for it what like 3 years ago which is all the
money that the car was worth! But now that the prices
are going down, down, down you could probley find the
same car for like $3,000 or $3,500.
But don't beat your self up about it. Last year he
snapped the timing belt on it which bent 2 valves &
destroyed the piston top. So He had Semple tow it to
my place in Mass along with a parts car he bought (for
the motor) & I swapped it into his V8. Probley ended
up costing just South of $2 grand to do all this. But
needless to saie it runs better than my 90 V8Q with
93k on it!
When I dropped off my old 90 200tqa I picked up his
V8Q to do some work on it Blower motor/ heater core, &
rear brakes. So I have it in my driveway now. I love
that old school Grey color too.
Well thanks for the good words.
