I can give examples of people I know who make poor financial choices too.

Do we know that this was a poor financial choice for the OP?

Is it any of our business?

It is none of our business.
But I definitely have an opinion about it.

It IS none of our business, which was my point.

I have an opinion too: Congrats OP, hopefully you get some enjoyment from it.

Rebuilt the motor in the old 67 Buick

Should have the Buick 340GS running this Sunday if it doesn't puke oil out the rear rope seal smile

Its got a hot 2 speed slushbox - but also a trick switch pitch converter - hi/low stall speed.

May go to 60 mph in under 7 seconds with a hot 208deg crower replacement cam smile

About as fast as my 85 cu-in VW 4 banger smile

Yes the Ford is for sale. Gotta bring over 20 large though ...

some pics on the rebuild (a look into my secret world):

Just another member of the BITOG holier than thou/sour grapes/hair shirt brigade.

Once in my life the last car at Enterprise was a Corolla with some miles on her …
Ever since when I see edyvw refer to “appliance” = think of that car.

When you're asking people for money all the time and rely heavily on support systems which most outgrow, you actually don't deserve to "enjoy driving". At least not until you're self sufficient.
Pardon me for venting and transferring his persona onto you Jaraxle. That was real wrong.
But for the foreseeable future the word Challenger = wasteful and needless. Forgive the knee-jerk reaction. I can be such a 'knee' sometimes.
Apologies.
Obviously you got sense....enjoy that new ride.

If it's not a 340 Buick, what is it? Looks like a Buick small block to me.

Oh, I guess the machine shop gave me the wrong motor back!

Funny the 020 over piston fit, and the crank laid in there just so. smile

But, You may be right, its a 344 now !
