  1. Making Purchase

    I have never driven anything with a hydro, but I can see how they would hold you back on a hill. Back in 85 when I bought my 417-8 I had a choice between hydro or manual I chose the manual thinking it was more maintenance free. Your friend won't want to give it up when the time comes, you will have to look for another one hi hi.

  4. New horse to me

    The lighting makes the paint look better than it is, I did try to rub it out with polishing compound but is still pretty faded. Still glad to have it makes a nice addition to my 1985 417-8. A friend of mine found it out in Kentucky where he lives and even delivered it to Pa for me, just another example that god is good AMEN.
