Here are a couple of great vintage G resources:

Josh Price, Placentia, CA: wizard with MB turbo-diesel transplants. If you don't have this motor in your vintage G, you need it and Josh can not only source a great one, he can also install it superbly. He might even be able to make a house call to do it. In other words, have him find and ship a motor to you and then fly him in to install it. He's pretty much the nicest and most honest guy you'll ever meet, so he makes a great houseguest. Here's his contact: joshp714@yahoo.com 714-499-4706

Rodney Brooks, Performance Unlimited, Ascutney, VT: Rodney is living every enthusiast's dream of transforming his hobby into his dayjob, except he's doing it at night. Rodney offers a very unique vehicle modification service if you're a guy like me: you have a busy life with work, family, sports, etc. and you have many projects planned for your truck, but the only time you have to carry out said projects is at night, after work and after kids are asleep. Further, while you fancy yourself a decent mechanic, you may not be quite ready to dive into the big projects without some real pro tools and equipment available and some expert advice when the manual skips a few crucial steps. Well, Rodney's a night owl and keeps night shop hours, like til midnight! Not only that, he's an excellent teacher and loves to have you take part when he's working on your rig, watch him to learn or simply just hang out and do another project while he's tackling the difficult stuff. Rodney's fabbing me up some custom bumpers and integrated sliders for my G and he's also doing some great rust "nip it in the bud" work by surgically removing infected pieces of body panel and replacing it with new welded in pieces. Oh so much cheaper than having to replace whole body panels, especially for those of you who, like me, are not exactly slaves to pristine bodywork. I've attached some pics below of some of Rodney's work so far. His contact is raceplayhavefun@hotmail.com 802-738-2428

Exhaust Manifolf, front, 1985 ge, Wanted

Hi. Probably too late for this request. But, if you happen to have a front exhaust manifold for above vehicle, I am a buyer. Manifold must be in good condition, meaning no cracks, nor attempts at reparing cracks.

Thank you for considering my request. Victor DePratti
vjbiotech@att.net.
