    Anyone want to buy a $25k ZHP?

    Damn man, that really sucks.

    I guess the mileage really has taken it's toll on this example combined with poor preventive maintenance.

    Everything you said is fixable and some of the things are inexpensive to fix (like ofhg, gasket is like $3 and it's a super easy DIY), just how big is the rust? Rust bubbles on the outside as well?

    Is there body rust or just on suspension parts that can be replaced?

    wes, that's not that bad. i would leave the undercarriage alone as far as rust is concerned... replace bushings, etc that are worn, stop it from leaking, and enjoy it.

    definitely post up a list from the mechanic. with prices. please.
