Drive it around!!!?? He pushes it out of the trailer onto carpet and then rolls it back in if the clouds even roll in. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Come on Rick, I'm not that bad, I took it on a 6 mile round trip the other day, BUT dirt is off limits :lol: , asphalt, concrete or a good bed of chat, I'm good. I will do some parades and shows but $4.00 gas for an out of town show at 12MPG gets in your pocket, I have no income now.

Yup, I know that feeling. That is why I cancelled the idea of going to the Hagerstown show this year. I have a ton of stuff I want to sell but 6.00 and up a gallon for diesel and possible questionable weather means no way. Last year at Gilbert I sold a whopping 50.00 worth of stuff. Didn't even pay my fuel bill. The shows aren't what they used to be. I really want to do the Findlay show but to do that one I need the RV which needs a LOT of work and at best I might squeeze 8 MPG out of it if I convert to fuel injection. Figure over a grand for the conversion so not really saving any money there for one trip. From 6 MPG to 8 MPG. Plus all new tires and batteries. Nope. In the old days I would not have thought twice about it. Once I get to the show the 151 is my main transportation.
