I see also that you have a 350 Chev (for now)
guessing at what my MPG is until I actually venture forth for a drive. maybe I'll get better than 8MPG?
94,000km on the engine should mean alot of life so I don't forsee a repower.. service label says: 250 hour service due @ 99,000kms
basically, I plan to make a summer cabin that is able to change venue occasionally.. if I really feel the urge to roam, I have a 1968 VW bus for that.
