He found this one last week, and decided to pass on it, but was kind enough to pick it
up, and hold it till I could pick it up today. Thanks Jamie. He has a really neat collection
of old tiller steering GTs.
I forgot my camera in the shop tonight, but will post some pics tomorrow.
The old girl is in pretty decent shape, but will need a total tear down. Thank goodness.
Now I've got something to do this coming winter.
On a side note. I had a moment of excitement as I went to pick it up. It was pouring down rain,
and I came down a hill to a stop sign. A small orange plastic car (I think Mitsubishi) followed me to
the stop sign. We sat there for 15 seconds at least, as I waited for traffic to pass. Suddenly, I get bumped
from behind. I look in the mirror, and see only the orange plastic. Now, remember, it's pouring down in buckets.
I get out, walk to the back, to find his plastic bumper hanging onto my trailer hitch ball. The kid finally gets out,
walks up front, and says, OH Bleep-. Then he says, "your trucks OK" I said yep, and got in the truck and
drove away. I really didn't care if I pulled his bumper along with me. How can that happen? I'm guessing
he was texting, and his girlfreind got him excited, causeing his foot to slip off the brake.
Anyways, other then that, it was a good road trip, and I'm glad to have met Jamie in person, and
also, lookin forward to bringing the 8 Exec back to life.
Oh, I just found a pic.
