Saw the Dirt Every Day episode when they took the van through the Gambler 500, looks like a cool deal for sure
Northstar? Lots of power, make sure it has antifreeze
Yes, northstar. 1999 deville 155k and extremely clean. Was owned by the captain on my pool team, original owner and probably never saw 60mph. Always serviced and babied. Scored this pimp ride for $250 he said it was running shity and didnt have much power. When I got it home I first thought convertor was plugged, but after pulling off engine cover I found all new plug wires, so got to looking and found 1 plug wire wasn't even on , then found 2 plug wires were crossed, purrs like a kitten now. Damn near new tires, had 18 gallons of gas in it, had a $700 alternator put in 2 months ago, oil changed 100 miles ago, this thing is mint, I may just have to keep it for awhile, I have a 1994 camry as backup in case I keep/sell it.
Doing the Washington or the OG Oregon one?
I saw it referenced somewhere too, then sought out the Dirt Everyday episode and it looked like it could be fun, however finding good, solid info was a little sketchy. Rather then just websites telling what, when and where, is seems mostly loosy, social media or web-pages set up like social media were info is come and gone or you have to dig and piece it together if you weren't part of the original conversation.
Be interested in trying depending on the who, when, what and where.
I like it!
Was eyeballing a camo painted suzuki sidekick that was on CL for like $800 for this... got to see if its still available.... and get a couple project out of the yard or the wife will kill me......
I've seen a couple other cool, odd-ball rides that would be bad ass, but most of its not cheap enough for a one-and-done event like this, some of its just down right too much $$
