Quick back story. I have an old motor that's been sitting around for ~5 years. It was basically free from a friends 88 Turbo Coupe parts car (running car with no trans). I had a Falcon I was going to put it into but sold the Falcon. I had the motor shrink wrapped, covered, and put some oil in the cylinders.

In it's current state the wrapping has torn through in places so I can't promise much other than some potential for a Challenge type car. The engine is located in Taunton, MA. If anyone is coming up for the big swap meet at Comcast Center/Tweeter/Great Woods in Mansfield this weekend it's close by.

Should have put location in the topic. I can't find a way to edit that.

Any takers?

Wish I was closer. One of those was the jumping off point to a lot of projects I've thought about over the years. Surely someone on here will snap it up.

Thinkker: It's yours. I don't really have time to do anything with it until this weekend anyways. I will PM you my cell number and call me to work out a time.

Woody: There is a pretty big Saturday + Sunday swap meet every Spring. It's been going on for 50+ years. It actually started in a nearby field for a Model T group. It varies from year to year in quality of items and depends what you are looking for. There are still lots of antique car parts but there is also loads of random items. I've seen everything from personal submarines to 30's swastika stamped running boards to porn to racing go-karts for sale. With the bay and CList being what it is now the swap meet doesn't have all the great deals it used to. The deals they do have are usually snatched up first thing Saturday or even Friday before it opens to the public. It's also normally on Mothers Day weekend but for the first time I can remember it's not this year. I've sold stuff there before but I think it's best for selling large items, and socializing, that's probably the main purpose now. Always a good time though, I recommend it. Probably more than you wanted to know but I do love me some swap meet.

Wish I had something to put this in, because I'm local... AND I'm going to that swap meet Saturday. I'll ask around.
