Like so many others, I wanted to buy Jaws when it first came up for sale in 2011/12 by Mr. Bob Large (RIP). Well, I've been thinking about it ever since, as its rumored history since Mr. Large's sale is unthinkable. It needs to be out in public for everyone to enjoy. It needs to be driven. It needs to be saved. I searched to find current owner who bought it a few years ago and put it in storage. We had been communicating for over a month via email, came to an agreement, and now its in my possession. Very fortunate to own it and when it seemed negotiations were heading south, I felt Mr. Large was present to allow his van a positive turning point. Over the last week, I've neglected our other van and have spent each weekday night and full weekend days to clean it up, determine what needs to be fixed (short term and long term), and have begun planning things out. We are its 4th owner (3rd in last 6 years) and plan to keep it that way for a long time.

That's very good news. Been a fan of the Jaws GMC for quite a while.

Back in December we were invited to have JAWS on display at the Fort Worth New Car Auto Show. JAWS has again been invited to be on display in a few weeks at the Dallas New Car Auto Show. In addition, logistics are being worked out with a local museum requesting JAWS be at their facility during the week long Shark Week when they screen the original JAWS movie in their theater. And then later this year at a possible comic con.

JAWS plans to be in attendance at Spring Fever. I've been in conversation with original owner Mr. Large's son and daughter who are planning to come out and see it for the first time in a long time.
