Re: Advice on possible purchase

For your own safety, please have those wheels inspected before installing/using them again. There was a lot of weight on them. Spokes crack, welds can break, rim can separate from the hub.

I bought a 2010 TT FJ a few months ago. In the midwest, that amount of rust is nothing to worry about. Try to avoid 2007-2008 models because of issues with engine bulging.

Umm...what's "engine bulging?"

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.
