So did you get any strange looks while reading the frame VIN? We are truly a bunch of geeks.

I wonder if they'd let us do a club restore on it… have our club's name on it advertising at the zoo...

No, but the vendor lady mentioned that they imported it from overseas. Not sure about that.

I think they like the patina

We'd have to raise our dues to pay for that resto! I saw it today..... The first thing we'd need to do is flip the bezel.

I would love to see it without all that stuff on top of it

I haven't been to the Bass Pro Shop in years but I loved the 40 that was there

Is it still there ?
