You can pay me now or pay me later. Why wait? :)

You want a newer (and low mileage?) car, which the '97 is.
You want a V8, which it can be.  $3K for the car plus about
$5K for the conversion gives you a low mileage V8 for $8K,
and it has newer electrics and the prospect of better parts
availability. Sounds like a winner to me.

Is it the right color?
