Re: Cancel the \'51, bought a \'48 cj2a!
Well, I guess the guy never actually said it ran, more like insinuated. It's sitting on a lot with a bunch of other cars, so I just stopped to find out what the story on it was and asked if it ran. He said it needed a starter. I just assumed that meant it ran, and with a push could be pop started. When I went back to get it, he told me he never actually got it started, and the starter was smoking last time he tried. He said he didn't know if it was 6v or 12v, so I'm guessing he put 12v to it and smoked it. And once I got to really poking around on it, it just got worse and worse, and I started seeing $$$$ signs flying. I'm glad I walked away from it, cause now I've got a good runnin '48 that starts right up. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
