Need advice on 1993 Suburban
I've been fortunate (I think) to be able to get a 1993 suburban essentially free (trading for some computer services).
It has 350k miles on it, and is on it's 3rd tranny. I'm not positive yet if it's original from engine point of view. In addition to that, it's been "sitting" for 3 years.
From a body and interior aspect i'd give it a 7 to 8 out of 10...it's really nice for it's age.
Don't know how it is mechanically...
I'm hoping for advice...I really like it and would like to make it work.
Some options I've considered:
1) "Bare minimum" - have it towed to a mechanic and have him do the least he can to get it running and driving. From here, fix what needs fixing as needed.
2) "All out" - Go ahead and get the engine overhauled and/or replaced (I'm worried about getting ripped off here)
I think the tranny will likely be ok...but engine and "rubber stuff" will need some love.
What do you all think I should do?
