    How would a 1985 with basically a full overhall on the engine/shocks/wheels/exhaust basically everything run?

    It has a 4.1L Buick V-6 Engine

    What do you guys think!!??!

    I mean is it a decent engine, like how many miles do yu think I could get out of it?

    It's got a new tranny, exhaust, headers, suspension, wheels tires

    It looks awesome Im just notsure if it would be a smart buy or not, oh and Id either have to fly to Wyoming from Florida and drive it back or just get it shipped here.
