That's a lot of work you have put in over the past 7 years. Why do you want to sell it?

Rzeppa- I'm Just not using it anymore I have only driven it once or twice a year for the past 3 years. For me most the fun is in building the project. Once I sell it I think I will find something to build for more of a DD duty.

Very cool. My dad used to own a '61 parts truck, and a '62 town wagon (that was very, very nice). I used to drive it to school the few times my parents let me drive myself to high school. Good times.
