Oh be still my heart there's one near me for $400. Not running of course.

For 400 I'd say it's worth it either way. Cheap bp it!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone swap a KL in, but maybe that’s just because the B6/Bp are easier.

I know of at least one KL running around, it's a tight enough squeeze that the beauty is gone as it's worse then a modern BMW to deal with routine maintenance and repair work.

I will keep my eye out, but I think I am in the rustiest state we have.

It completely disappeared, it had enough photos and proper accounts of things to not seem scammy to be honest.

Also, according the FB marketplace, west virginia is crawling with them. I think that's a reflection of the chaotically fun to drive roads. 

Yes indeed.  For quite a while I thought it was the official state car.  Those were everywhere.  Just like Fiestas used to be all over the place in WV before the Festiva.

So funny... came here to suggest a WVA search! It's the only place I've seen them after the 90s, lol!

I’ve decided I am going to sell mine in the coming months. Sad to say, as it’s one of my favorite cars.

I need something bigger, and I want someone to own it who will fix it up. It needs some loving. I’m in California though.

Well, damn, I just found that B6T swap issue from SSC. January 2004. I can post pics of the article if anyone is still interested.
