Bill, I think we should claim to have purchased the struts since they will be visible from the strut caps in the engine bay and front trunk (the threads and nuts will look new). What do you want to team to "pay" you for them? $50? $100?

Throttle cable? what throttle cable? We didn't buy no stinking throttle cable! As far as the struts go, put the little plastic caps on them and put some grease on the tops. I believe that Toyota did this for corrosion protection. Nobody will ever know the difference. If you still worry about that, pack grease around the bottom of the strut nut to protect the strut hat bearing, soak a rag in salt water, put the salty rag on the tops of the new strut nuts, voila, rusty old struts. Now, The urethane bushings are currently $85 on e-bay. I think we could do that. New car price @$285. Hmmm?

$250 car?? What's the $50 for? I thought the cars's receipt was for $200. We sold the seats for $75 didn't we? $125 car?

Please verify the price as written on the bill of sale, thanks. Selling me the seats is great but we'll still need a drivers seat in there. We could just keep 1 seat in there, and say we sold the stock seats and that this 1 seat someone already had?

The receipt is either in my Taco or at Kevins. Taco is in town. Ya might check with Kevin. The seats were sold cash and exchange to a guy that wanted BLUE seats. He gave us $50-$75 and a set of BROWN seats for our BLUE seats. Or we can buy a cheap bucket seat at PEP Boys. They used to have APC "racing" bucket seats. I think they went for about $200 each. Of course e-bay alwaay has used seats. But I do have a set of brown seats in my barn. Wow I must be off my game today. BROWN seats go with our theme all tooo well.
