I've always liked these and I saw this one with a really good price on ebay. What do you think?

they are really cool cars but if you want that thing to move your gonna have to put some serious cash into it.

one of the cheapest, fastest, and easiest project cars is a s-10 pickup with a crate engine. you can have an 11-12 second truck for about 5-8k if you do it right.

I wasn't exactly looking to make it fast, just a daily driver or get it to a point that it looks nice and doesn't break down every other day.

from reading the description it sounds like that car would last another month before it needed a new rear, and everything else.

Huh? Any crate engine that would fit into a S-10 will drop into a Z. Plus the L28 isn't that expensive to build up.

no but to the s-10 trans works better than a Z trans to mate up.
