Well, IMHO if ya love the car restore it to regular fuel and take it with ya. BUT if don't love the car, are convince to sell it, I would still restore it to regular fuel because I for one would never buy an e85 fueled car simply for the same reason, can't find e85 'round here.. good luck with what ever you decide..

Airforce, sweet! Enlisted or Officer? Anyways, the best thing I would say is if you can bring her back to stock as much as possible cause the dealer isn't going to give you anything more than what she's worth regardless of mods.

After removing mods sell them and you can make most of your money back.

bringing to stock... lol I suppose I could trade my components for others stock stuff. First thing though, I should see what they will give me as is, then ask, well what if it was stock.

Anyone want want a zzp built engine? Hahn 20g with my custom pipes?

I am going back in enlisted with the ANG. Ground communication, SPICE sat specifically.

I let my wife convince me to sell my 68 GTO and have regretted it for 44 years.

If you like the car, keep it. Store it or find someone to keep it for you

Airforce

Must be stationed at Kessler in Biloxi, MS. Lots goin on. You might like the Sky to cruise Hwy 90 along the coast. But would think not a good place to sell a car. Lived there in the 80's before the casino's. Thank you for your service to our country!

leave the sky in the garage, buy a beater cavalier or civic and slum it up until you get back home.

Makes way more sense than selling the car.

If you sell, you will 100% lose your wallet on it regardless. I lost big on mine, and sold mods for less than 50% of their value. It is just the name of the game.

I Would put it on ebay today with an ignorant price to get some looks. You should attract a serious buyer, however you would need a dyno for them to understand what you have going there.


Goodluck!

I spent a few weeks at Keesler back in '69, and a few days at Beau Rivage before Katrina. Big difference!

No E85 around here. All of the extra corn is used for Moonshine.

Yeah, no corn gas around the base. 3 hours north is the closest.
