Default The four L series in the driveway

I have four of these right now. The front one is my daily driver, the second is almost ready to sell. The third is the next project with a bad engine. The last one is just parts. Plus I have a shop full of parts from three other L series.

The parts are pretty much for my use. I have been buying and restoring these cars.

I like that picture very much! You're truly a committed L-Series man!!

Neither you nor I live in "road salting" parts of the country so I wonder, how well do you find the undercarriage of these bodies holding up where you are? Did you deal with any rust issues on the cars you've acquired?

Are these project cars which are meant to be sold profitable for you after all of the necessary work to make them road-worthy has been completed? Is there perhaps something of a "labor-of-love" present for you in such work?

296,000 miles-it keeps on rolling!
The blessings of liberty erode in my country.
Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.

My stick shift car is the only one of the 9 I have had that has any rust. The rust is very light on some of the suspension parts and brake parts. This car came from Spokane Wa. And probably ventured East a time or two in the 16 years before I got it. There is zero rust on any of the others.
I try to pay only a couple hundred dollars for a car with problems. I sold a Gold 2002 L200 that had 150,000 miles for $1750 and I drove it for a year after repairing the engine. I had about $1000 in the car plus my labor.
I will never get rich building these cars but I will keep my driver on the road for very little money. I have good running gear for an L300 just need to find a nice car with a broken belt. Most of the projects have been L61 cars.
