Wow, and he replied right away too:
"at this point neither car is in shape for a trip like that. one could swap the parts over, but it would involve swapping the differetial and 3 corners. one has a much stronger motor but its the one with the worse body. it also has brand new exhaust. the weaker motor one has a/c a nicer body and a brand new clutch and the 4x4 engage mechanism works well. these cars are magical, easy to wrench, economical and fun. heres some pics. sorry, both cars are stuffed in my garage right now."
Thoughts on what he means here?
