If the car is as nice as in the pics I will fix it properly.I hope it works out well for you! I have heard of people changing to a thicker oil, and the knock goes away and they drive for years. Definitely not the norm, but maybe you'll be one of the lucky few? Either way, that ride looks nice.
My truck is all apart, and calling on friends can be a hassle.You don't have a truck or a friend with a truck? You can rent a uhaul trailer for the day for $55 around here. I will travel 3-400 miles to buy a car but not much farther.
It sounds like this car just needs a new/rebuilt crank and bearings.
