I'm good friends with the local salvage yard; whenever they get a Caddy in, they call me. I've gotten some nice cars from them. Now they all need something, otherwise they wouldn't be in a junkyard, but a nice Eldo with rotten brake lines can be had for cheap, I'll usually buy it.
This time he had a beautiful white diamond '00 SLS. Cream interior. $600.
Now it wouldn't run (fuel pump), the pass. window regulator (a weird pulley and wire setup) needed replacing to close the window....
oh, no coolant. Red flag...Well the regulator's replaced, pumps been installed and it runs, but smoke POURS out the purge tank (cap off).
And once the coolant was added, it runs out the right front of the engine bay.
Looks like it gets parked for better weather...too nice to part out, though.
Carol's giving me 'the look'.
