    Any service history? The price vs mileage is good, but if it hasn't had fairly regular services performed, it might cost more in the long run.

    I've done a fair bit of climbing out there. I love it around Katoomba. The old houses with the view off the cliffs are awesome. You should have plenty of local spots to play with the Troopy!

    Yeah, I like the Northstars too. Hallmarks are $30,000+ spec'd as I'd want, so they are a lottery dream at the moment. Below are pics of the "North Texas" style welding tub I was talking about. ...

    I used to get around 14 mpg out of my 460 5 speed combo ('96 F250 ex-cab short box) basically idling everywhere, but I think 17 mpg out of a carb 454 and granny low 4 speed is some serious wishful...

    I'd be very curious to see what springs you have in yours as well. Mine are the 865 coils, and I find them a bit soft. I believe the 864 or 868 are heavier rate coils? Maybe Curt (Cruiseroutfit)...
