Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Every time I've bought a car there has always been something else that made the timing of another car purchase bad at the time .... but when I followed through on the purchase, I was always happy I did. The first time you drive the van, you'll forget about how much you paid for it. I'll try to reac...

Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Roger, You are correct. Engine running first, stopping reliable second. Enjoyment comes next. Then some fixing up/customization. The handle I am looking for is the one that 'pops' the back window. It is mounted on the fold down gate in the back under the lift gate and can be see in one or two of the...

Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Roger, With all my unpaid wages, I paid close to $3445, or within 2% of that. $3200 was my turn back point and refused to go any higher. I think I will be happy in the long run, although I really needed the money the last 6 months or so.. Either way, now its mine forever (pending title change this w...

Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Roger, Yes I finally ending up picking up the van on Memorial Day. It was a situation where I had a tentative agreement with my ex-boss, the van in exchange for the repo work I did last fall. He owed me like 424 hours of work at the end of this all and I gave him the ultimatum of giving me the van f...

Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Your original letter was lengthy and I'm willing to respond with an equally lengthy letter of my own -- but it seems like a waste of my time to do so. Both Ed and I are of the opinion that Chris White's van seems to be a much better car and since it's available for about the same amount of money as...

Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Welcome to The Club! I think Chris White has the van you want, I have known him for decades and seen pix of the van. I drove one like it for more than 40 years. It never let me down. I only sold it because I was getting too old to do the preventive maintenance that any vintage car needs to keep it ...

Re: ittybitty360 in Minnesota. Help me with my decision please!

Hi, The only thing you did not state is what you want to end up with: a decent driver? a show car? most likely, something in between? If you end up with this van and do glass, interior, chrome, mechanics, tires and paint, you'll spend at least $10,000 -- probably closer to $15,000 --- in addition t...
