Maybe he will want to buy it for sentimental reasons. I wish I knew were my first 40 was. I sold it in 1984.

He knows all about it. We've been chatting via e-mail. Michael's a great guy -- we might see him at CM this year as a passenger.

Seeing Uglibus again is bittersweet. I am truly glad it is being used and will live on in other cruisers.

I still have a few remaining parts from the old Uglibus, including the hood ornament which I still use. Actually fits the hood of an 80 better.

Robbie, good to here from you. I miss all you guys. What a warm welcome! Uglibus II is managing. The small V8 is even more tired than it used to be, and a worn tranny to boot. It still passes emissions, but will need some big changes. The swampers fixed the lava vs. side wall issue, but the 39s have killed my crawl. I guess it is back to the skinny petal Uglibus driving technique.
