      That's a pretty decent deal for the car if it is as good as the ad says.
      Love the ''patina'' as well, it seems to suit the car...........

          No one noticed the cage is welded RIGHT ON TOP of the gas tank? Not to mention the bars dont hit the center of the plates. Thats death in motion right there!

          Wow! safetie first, or last?

              I don’t know where you have your gas tank installed but a factory tank sure ain’t gonna be in front of the rear shocks and over the rearend.

                Ok, my bad. I see now that bump up aint the tank.

                Still the location of the bar to the plate and welding is sketchy at Best...

                  Anyone who builds a cage like that has zero business building cages.

                  Mine goes back to the frame rails, plated on top and welded to out riggers off the frame underneath.

                    Agree , but if the welds don't break , any cage is better than no cage . ugly ?

                    I would think the long bars rearward from the main hoop would go to mounts above or tied into the rear shackles. If I remember old DC manual drawings, there would be downward bars off those to the shock mounts and possibly to part of the frame rail where it could kink with good bite. Maybe that was early PS technology. Still like it!

                    but it has a spool!!! would be quite the adventure bringing that home.
                    gee, you'd be somewhat half way, could stop by you to rejuvenate. (only kidding)

                    Roadkill drove a car 7 hours in the snow with a spool :D
                    Oh, and swing on by! Can whip up some food and stock the fridge with your favorite beverages and offer a couch at least! Lol

                    Trust me on this one, you're (somewhat) glad you don't have a trailer. I do have one, and a truck big enough to pull it with a car/truck on top. So far I've brought home three dead dogs that are sitting here rotting on my property instead of the other guy's property. And I'm off to get another one this weekend. I really need to stop buying inoperative vehicles. :eek:

                    as one friend says, "you don't know how to say no". gotta go back to buying Tonka trucks and cars, they take up a lot less room.
