Hello, dear friends.
Anyone out there in the market for a 1978 Scout located in beautiful New York, New York?
A few details: It’s got a Chrysler 318 in it. Automatic transmission. Power steering and brakes. Hard top included. Body is in great shape, rust-wise. In the year I’ve had it, I’ve put a new ignition system in it. New fuel pump. New alternator. Made the wiring presentable. Changed the oil. Threw a K&N air filter in there. Installed new door locks and ignition (that are all on one actual International key.) Upholstery is in solid shape.
There might be a couple of things I’ve forgotten. Ask away.
I love it dearly, but it was purchased for a life in Jersey with a wonderful Jersey girl. But things happen and plans change and hearts break and there are things you say and do that you can’t take back and since I’ve moved back into Manhattan, it just isn’t that practical for me right now.
It needs a good home. No hacking this thing to pieces or parting it out. Love it or leave it.

Today marks the death of Townes Van Zandt. This is one of my favorite songs by him. Rest in peace.
If anyone isn’t familiar with Townes Van Zandt a great album to start with is “Live At The Old Quarter, Houston, Texas”. So is “Rear View Mirror”.
I think about him every New Years.
