    Bill, I've had it "BAD" for a very long time! Just now starting to show!!!

    And Leaster, Funny you should say that. We were out in the shop yesterday figure out what we would have to move where so "both" van's would fit and figured out that once we move all the plastic totes with the panel van parts in them ( all 14) and move the lawn tractor back about five feet both vans will fit nicely with room to walk around both....

    And B.W. I'm just glad they could get a transport to where the van was. Billings, MT. is in the middle of "nowhere". Roundup, MT. is about 75 miles north of Billings. Even farther into the hills of nowhere land!

    Like I said Moe. I'm just glad it's on the way. I was getting worried they wouldn't be able to find a carrier that would pick it up because of it's remote location. I was making plans to fly up and get it if they coundn't get a driver by the end of the month..

    Years ago,I would look at Old Car Trader(?) magazine.There was a guy who always had 'something' for sale pre '40.Thats the only reason I've ever heard of Roundup,Mt.Well,there and Medicine Bow.They all looked as if they'd just been parked.Looked to be great shape,and over 50/60 years old.

Very happy with this one! It's raing pretty good so will wait untill tomorrow and if weather permits I will check it out better and see what I can find... Even the door seals are good!
