@Boatme I see you had a '77 caddie too, I grew up in one of those... My dad use to race horses, and wanted something comfortable to pull horses with and me being a young lad, something without rear doors to fall out of. You should of seen the looks we got driving up in a 2 door Cadillac pulling a 2-horse trailer...

BTW... '77 was Cadillacs 75th anniversary....

@ Trez: The Scout II's are...well...*modern* by Scout 80 standards. They both have their merits.
You would be a rare bird (probably a desert rat) if you drove a Scout 80 on a daily basis today. I was a rare bird when I drove one! haha
I did love the Comanche engine but the 304 is a real good power plant too.
I guess it's rare (at least around here) to see anyone drive a Scout II on a daily basis.
I know of exactly 1 that I see parked in a driveway, registered and on the road and it is a cream puff that I missed a chance to buy years ago by about 1 week. It was a barn find and a Texas truck.
My Scout II had near 300K miles on it when I sold it, so you never know.
