As much as I hated to do it, it needed to go to someone that has more automotive skills than I do. the new owner will treat it right.

good luck.

Sounds like you did the right thing. Better to have someone else enjoy it than to see it sit and deteriorate.

I would have kept the old girl but I understand your reasons for selling.

What a beautiful back drop in that picture. Everyone says how nice it must be to live at the beach but I'd trade it for the mountains any day. My wife enjoys the beach so I guess I'm stuck smile

Go enjoy that new van Cap'n and don't look back!

I know I did the right thing. The price I paid for my van would never have gotten the panel truck to the drive-ability point that I need so that I could start attending events. Some of you talented folks may very well have been able to do it but, I could not. I got the most bang for my buck with the new van and the panel truck got what it needed in that it went to a guy that has the skill and a shop. Plus it gives me the cash I need for "RIMS and TIRES."
As far as "on the market" goes it never really was. I had a long list of "if you ever want to sell that"s. Number 2 bought it and he contacted me when he found out I bought a van. So...Good bye old friend and good luck.
