How can a M151 A1 be a 1991 model? Does having an A2 windshield do it?

Fairly easy to see that it is a reproduction tub, Encore or Titan?? there are "no" seams on the side panels and the fire wall area is flat. :roll: PS: The add dose say "Tribute" :)

I believe it is an Encore. I have both an Encore and a Titan. It may be the same one that a car place was trying to sell last year.

Encores have rounded front fenders, like an A1. My Titan has squared off front fenders. There are several other differences that point in the Encore direction.

I have been at the Ted Vernon place a few months back. For sure a character and I was about to pull the trigger on VW T2. Some of the stuff he has have really good prices, some of the stuff is just outright ridiculous.

Also, neither Encore or Titan have footman loops for the top on the back, so if you put a military top on it, you have to get creative. Most just strap it to the forward bow. That means the back window is hanging below the top (which is loose and pockets rain water). All like the one in the "tribute" pictures.

Never lost power at home. Just got internet back & cable. We were one of the very few that that did not lose power here on the island. We had hurricane winds here, but not much damage.

The garage is 300 yards from the Atlantic. No water, no damage. That being said, the power pole accross the street, carrying our 3 phase compressor & light juice broke off and laid the heavy copper lines on the road. The scrappers got in and collected the copper without getting electricuted or arrested. The Georgia based power people arrived this morning, and claim we can open for business tomorrow. I need that fan running, if I'm going to get anything done on my resto.

The horrific 10 foot storm surge they news media was howling about never happened. I swear, they had to search our area for the few badly damage buildings, then reported it as everywhere.

A number of boats in the intercoastal broke loose and were beached all over. I have pics of a big sail boat and a large yatch on the sand under the Blue Heron Bridge to Singer Island.

Yea, the news agencies will find the ONE tree that is uprooted and take pictures from all angles to make it look like it is different trees. And you see the same damn tree on 6 different news channels! :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
