Pinzgauer Rescue

Post by rmel » Mon Jan 14, 2019 10:21 pm

Not to be confused with Search & Rescue of people, this is Pinzgauer rescue,
like Golden Retriever rescue, Pit-bull rescue -- you get the idea.

Well I must be nuts -- I know I am :// . Just took possession of a 73' 712 that
has lived on Winery property for 20 years, never registered, crawled over
Zinfandel, Pinot's, and Cab's. She needs a fair amount of TLC, price was fair,
but getting her back to proper condition will be a fair amount of work -- so
here we go :shock:

Well, I should add ain't no salvage project like Gekoadventures :D

Already placed orders for some parts from EI, list will grow fast.

Ya, I did :wink: Still crazy after ALL THESE years :P
Like, it's not that I don't already have enough to do with
the 710K but what the heck.

All paper work in to the DMV just waiting for plates.

There is a guy on Facebook selling lots of 712 parts including the body. Jason Wong I believe he is in Stockton Ca. Area.

Thanks for the tip!! I'll see if I can contact this guy.
Wonder where he is posting as it has not popped up
on any of the Pinz forums I am aware of.

Thanks for the pointer! This particular FB page is pretty obscure would
not have known about it otherwise.

seems every time I try to save a pinz it cost me money to get it back to "everything works" condition. I think I do it more for the idea of keeping them alive then anything else.
Good Luck

Ya that's what I figure too. Well the price was very reasonable so I can afford to
toss in some goodness. I'm betting more than I suspect though. But part of this is
to keep me busy and out of trouble.
