Us old retired guys have to have some adventure in our lives and helping friends connect with new to them Cruisers is rewarding. My last trip was for Gary Waggoner - he flew me out to Indiana and I drove a pristine FJ62 back to Denver. Before that, I helped facilitate a deal on a Denver 62 for a friend and then drove it to him in Atlanta, GA. Sea Knight and I simply love the adventure of driving old Cruisers, you may have read his thread on IH8MUD about driving a 40 from Austin, TX, to Hawaii for a friend's brother. He hasn't finished the story yet but it aptly describes the fun of being on the road in a Cruiser. If you haven't seen this thread, check it out on the 40 series section - it's a sticky call Saving the Old Rust Bucket.
Anyway, if this sounds like a possibility to you, shoot me a pm and we can discuss it.
Well this must be why he can't find time to finish the story!
I like this idea!
I did ship my 55 from Sante Fe, but I do not remember who did. I can look up who did it and the amount, but this was back in '08. Diesel was a little more reasonable then...
