Re: help? 2007 with 220K needs motor?
The cost of the repairs is totally relevant to the conversation.
But sometimes we just need a freakin' adventure. If you could shoulder a financial loss of several thousand dollars, maybe just go for it.
People go to casinos, money losers beyond any reasonable debate, and have fun. If this FJ speaks to you, get it and see where it leads.
We bought a 1959 Willys for my wife, and it was not meant to be. Lots of work, and not what we were wanting. We cobbled it together and lost money. That led to a very fun 1966 F100 that may be a keeper. The point is you learn, you build your skills, you enjoy the path, and know that NOTHING in life is forever.
Who knows? Get this thing, and find out the "dead engine noise" is a $30 idler pulley!
PS If you are in Tucson, I will be there in 30 minutes to help you get it home!!
