Why would I buy half a limo? Do I get the front half? The back half? The top half? These are inconsequential details. The important point to remember is that I have a limo…you do not.

Is there a back story behind this purchase? Not really. Hafer’s friend Yohn was pressured into buying a limo by Hafer, he wanted out of the deal, I said I’d buy his half, and I did. That simple. The most common question I’ve gotten from telling people this story is, “what are you going to do with it?”

What Does it Matter?

Yohn told me the 4.6L Northstar engine is a terrific engine. Once we shook hands, he said it was a horrible engine. Here’s what I read about the engine:

The block halves are what leak. Having done the job more than a few times I would not recommend these to anyone. It is a ticking time bomb.

How important is the engine to a car? I just want a good steering wheel that doesn’t fly off when you’re driving. On a serious side, once we soup this bad boy up, put some money into the exterior design, stop that engine from leaking, this will pay for itself in no time. I see it as a charity vehicle taking little kids to baseball games or making road trips with the boys. Hell, Hafer almost wiped out an old lady gunning it up rollercoaster road to give an idea of the pick up. This will be one purchase I will not regret. I’ll check back in once the idea starts fleshing out.
