    I'm looking to trade my 1984 Ford LTD Country Squire station wagon for a firearm. I'll also be happy to just sell it outright. I'm at work and all info is from memory, so it's all approximate.
    Any offers or questions can be sent to me at soakedgnoll@yahoo.com Originally posted at http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?threadid=47989

    First, the bad news. It's got over two hundred thousand miles, it's pretty darn fugly (fake wood paneling's peeling, tint's bubbling on back windows etc), loses oil but not bad, the left rear window is experiencing technical difficulties (it's stuck in the down position. The motor works, but the belt it drives is slipping), and I took the radio out (but I could reinstall it no problem). There may be other problems but nothing I remember.

    Now, the good news. The transmission was completely rebuilt a couple thousand miles ago, it's always been very reliable for me (other than having to rebuild the tranny), good rubber, it has pretty much every option they offered for it (roof rack, aluminum rims etc), power everything, good AC (not quite as cold as it used to be, but still adequate when I was driving it), tinted windows, factory bumper hitch, new alternator, master cylinder, brakes and possibly some other things I'm forgetting.

    I'm not looking for too much for it. I figure it's worth between $500 & $1000, I'll be happy to get a bit less if it's a gun . I'm looking for the following in roughly descending order of interest: any Glock in .45 acp for my wife to CCW with, a good revolver (.44 or .357, prefer 4" to 6" barrel, no Smiths with locks), M1A's (probably Norinco or Armscorp in this price range), FAL's, Garand's, Savage 110 in 30.06 or .308 , any decent 1911 (prefer Dan Wesson), any 03 Sprinfield variant in good working order, Lee-Enfields, M39 Mosin-Nagant's, Ithaca M37 (8 shot parked without disconnector), Mossie 590, Ruger MKII or 10/22, .357 or .44 mag carbine, lever guns (prefer .45-70, .30-30, .44 or .357), Hi-Point's in .45 acp, SKS's, AK's, and pretty much anything else. I just want to get something out of it. Feel free to make offers. If I don't know if it's a good deal I'll post it here for a price check ;) .
