                Well, it's a 58, so it's worth saving. But the thing that caught my eye in that ad was that it's in Browns Mills NJ. I lived in Browns Mills for about 6 months in '66-'67 while serving duty at McGuire AFB.

                LOL! Thanks Joe! MacDill! I'm gettin' old.[V]

                    That must have been a heck of a commute...MacDill AFB is in Florida!

                        Have fun calling the guy, I did, from what I can gather, it is fairly rusty but it was hard to find out much, I couldn't get a word in edgewise between him telling me the car wasn't for me if I was planning at all to transport it. He must have had a lot of tire kickers because he came off imediatly defensive. Maybe I caught him at a bad time but I doubt it.

                            I never got a reply from the guy but from the post above someone talked to him, his response doesnt really suprise me. Reminds me of the time I listed a junker motorbike on Craigslist for free. I had 200 responses in an hour...People seem to go insane when they think they are getting over...The worst were the ones who were asking a bunch of questions..its free it is in (deleted) FREE condition, you jackass ! Of course this is a much larger enterprise than that but I can relate. Oh and BTW I will never list anything for free again I will put at least a nominal price to seperate the wheat from the chaff. But I digress...

                            The people who went to the top of the list were the ones who expressed the ability (I have a rig),intent(I will do it yesterday) and finally motivation(I have one I need a parts bike for).

                            So if it were me and I had the above,most importantly ability and intent I would call the guy up and my first question is "Where do I send the money?". I would overnight the $s and then settle details...I know I can part it at least to cover costs and it is only better if it is better than parts. There is no real downside that I see..Of course your wife or neighbors may think otherwise

                            I lack a few of the needed items to do this at the moment, so everyone else feel free to take a wack. If someone is heading North via 95 thru DC area I would be more than happy to go if extra hands are needed.

                            Seems someone headed to York with a rig could grab it too...

                            There were some President posts on here recently, at least one was the guy in PA (posted as 57Classic ?) who bought that solid 57 that had all the smashed glass, I dont think he has posted but wouldnt this be a good donor ?

                            Anyway hopefully someone sorts something out.
