I don't live in fear of my cars either. I've got an 85 on 10 year belts and this 88 I have no clue how old they are. I have no qualms firing them up when spring hits MN after 6 months of storage. I certainly have plans to get in there on both and update blets/hoses/pump/etc but it will happen when it happens. For a lot of buyers though its a big deal one way or the other and I can understand that too.
