Yes sir,

I bought it with the intentions of flipping it but after I looked it over I couldn't, in good conscience, sell it with everything I saw wrong with it. While I waited for a title I went a little nuts and ordered way too many parts and went elbows over knees fixing things, in the Ohio winter -10 or so. I bought parts from all over the globe to make it right. I would love to keep it since I've wanted one since I was young but I have an $80,000 new truck sitting outside in the weather while the mutt sits in the garage. I can now, with a clear conscience sell it thanks to this forum and all the guidance I've received. This thing runs and drives near perfect. I'll probably lose money but sometimes that's the way life goes. I've had a lot of fun with it though.

What a great time in Flindlay! Went by way too fast. How many times in a persons life can they say a tank was in the rear view mirror with the driver saying "brake check me I dare you", with a finless brown trout eating smile on his face. Damn that was a blast!

Green Iron TV visit to Findlay. I think there are some familiar vehicles in the video. I'm impressed by whoever towed a Nike Missile there! :lol:
