So as it happens, I ended up buying a great, practically all-original 1988 Grand Wagoneer from a guy in Malta, MT for a great price. Unfortunately, it’s now sitting in an Elk’s Lodge parking lot in Bismarck, North Dakota with a busted transmission (I think), and I’m typing this out in a Barnes and Noble café on a few hours of sleep.
My dad and I will be heading home as soon as we find a shipper, provided that the Elks don’t mind if it sits in their parking lot for a day. So much for the great price…
On the plus side…well, there really isn’t a plus side visible at the moment, but I’m sure this will be funny with some perspective, somehow. At least I’ve got a great vehicle that will be even better once it drives.
I’ll make a more comprehensive and entertaining update about the last few days in Montana (which is all-around awesome) once I feel I can conduct myself civilly.
