Hi, Fellow "Killer B's", We bought a 2000 Dodge 190 Popular that had odometer 200k miles, "it's a killer of a deal 'cuz it has only 57K on a rebuilt motor", we were told .
Well, 1st, while it was parked at our mechanics garage, kids broke rear side windows on both sides and the the windshield; 2ndly, then it failed emissions test due to 2 cylinders not having much compression which turned into a valve job. 3rdly, Prior to the valve job, those two cylinders were discovered to be cracked, so we get to have a new head installed. Nonetheless, we are calling it the Mystic Gypsy Blue (looks just like Timmay's) and we are excited to hit the road ! If anyone has any hints, tips, upgrade farkles or just plain 'This is how I did it' info to share, plz do so.
