I have refused them in the past, but this one will be a go!
Deal is on the verge of being completed on the sale of the van, 360 Husky that was hauled to the races, and some other goodies.

Time capsule, dude got married, had kids, and parked it way back when; a time capsule!

a lot of work too!

Just waiting to hear from the possible new owner! Then they'll make a quick trip from CA to NY, then NY to SC, drop it off and see where this goes! Nice to work on something different, something other than my regular stuff; panel jobs.

Oh, I misunderstood. I thought you were buying it. I have relatives in Charleston; guess I don't need to warn them after all. :-D
