    Nice score!
    There's two '34 trucks sitting in an old barn in the farmland outside of Raleigh I tried to buy 6 years ago. Of course, there's about 10 partially disassembled "in progress" vehicles of various years (think early 1990's Olds Cierra back to a mid-60's Galaxie) left exactly where the owner lost interest, but he's "gonna fix those '34's up one day". Maybe with the economy, I need to stop again! Maybe he'll sell them to me for the same price you paid!

    Great find! The few times I found a good deal and some one did an end around to get it, even though everything was agreed upon, they usually did. You were lucky to be able to find such a stand up seller, good guy.
     
  6. Sweet deal.

    The last time you talked to him was he using a walker and coughing up brown gunk with oxygen tubes in his nose? If so, I think I've met a couple of his cousins up here. :D

    Good score but finding honorable people to deal with is just as imortant. You did good on both counts. Now, keep us informed on the build.

    he was the coolest guy, he didnt care about the $, he was just glad it was going to someone that was gonna use it and not part it out, he chuckled a couple times about not really knowing what it was worth, but he did want to know how I responded 6 min's after he posted the ad,I just started laughing,,,,,6 freaking minutes ,,what shit luck

    I'm usually the guy on the phone with cash in hand while someone is standing there trying to get it for a lot less. I've had a couple of guys who were trying to wheedle a guy down from a fair price all the sudden pull out the asking price when I was either on the phone or pulling in the driveway. First come first served but a wasted effort for me.

    Great looking start on a nice 34 pickup there, congrats.
