Nah....there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the thermostat in the pic. Just clean it up a bit and reinstall. I'm sure it will be fine. :hide: :p

Check out this well-maintained thermostat housing off a friend's '83 Caprice (this is what it looked like when he got the car):

Hahaha...wow...mines not that bad, but it does look like swiss cheese. That tstat was off of my truck. '84 GMC 3/4. She's been taking forever to warm up, then running super hot. Lower radiator hose was cold and the top was steaming hot so I figured the thermostat was sticking. That's what I found when I pulled the housing off. :) It's all better now, and while I was moving stuff around I broke a bunch of super fragile vacuum lines and hoses and other crap which I ended up replacing, and now she runs WAY better.
