Well since Adam won't buy me anymore diamonds, I found something gold instead. I've been looking for another Ride-a-Matic since Adam traded the one we had last summer for a Sears. Found one about an hour south of our house and picked it up tonight. All of the guards/shrouds/grill/hood were in the car yet.
