Glancing through the local paper I found a 1977 Tbird for sale $100 [in 2012]. Called and found out the brakes were out.
Upon arrival [only 4 miles] I found a leaky brake line to the right front wheel. Got out my trusty vise grips bent the line shut,top off the fluid and paid the money.Drove it home put in a new line.and good as new!
Too bad there not all that easy.
