    Yes. The car is in transit to the new owner as we speak.
    He already sent me one email.
    Why doesn't the radio work?
    How the hell do I know?
    I hope this isn't the beginning of a thousand of whys....

    If he is the 1,000 question guy I would assume he'll be a regular quite quick.

    My current car came along and I HAD to have it. It was a car one goes through life wishing you could find. I don't have the room for more than one toy unfortunately.

    Store it and "git around to fixin'er up someday". This New Yorker is A Keeper and it ain't going anywhere unless some European throws bags of money at me and that's not going to happen.

    The wheel wasnt bad. I also included a very nice steering wheel but I guess he preferred the wrap. It's a T&T. Had a silver sleeve when it left here.

    The new owner called me tonight. Says the engine is a dog. I don't think he's owned a 2 1/2 ton car before. Hey, call the guy you bought it from, eh? May have to block his number.....
