thanx everyone for the replies, think i forgot to mention that i'm a
mechnical idiot and had no idea what half of the things suggested are. but i
get the general feeling that i was going to make a bigger mistake that i
expected. sooo, i'm probably not gonna touch that car and look for something
with a V6 and maybe just 350 holly extractor (hope i got that right). it'd
probably be just the normal FJ40 with a reconditioned engine in it.
eventually of course, slowly i will start doing things to it like make it
LPG and other mods to it, but it's really a car that i'd be keeping rather
then thinking of having to sell it at a later date.
also, how good are reconditioned engines? i think the stock standard is a V6
