    geez...whyntcha ask him if those are his own teeth....or how long he's had that limp....or if he still beats his wife?

    I'm amazed at the chutzpah of some people. You don't EVER ask what someone paid for something unless they're a very good friend and you wont' be too offended if they tell you to bugger off.

    Its my customers not mine, just thought it was pretty kool deal, to leave it looking like it did. the new wheels on it now will not be used , not sure what we will put on it yet . but it has glass front fenders and we have nice steel ones to put on and paint to match the rest of it...

    It actually sat in front of a wrecker service in texas for 25 yrs not in a barn had a big hand winch in the bed of it. yes it has glass fenders on the front but the rest is steel and no rust and no it hasnt been on the road in yrs but will turn over has new wheels on it and tires just for transport as they hold air. just thought you might enjoy it but if not I have some newer stuff??....... i am amazed at how un touched it is since its build however many yrs ago. old chrome axle etc.
