even something like that might be worth the effort--but things have to be steaming along.

yes Yes--most definitely,
the invisible trucks are part of the technology they have gleaned from their joint operation

I was offered a rather clapped out 450SL, a 1974, for $1000 the other day. Needed paint (badly) but it ran.

Even the price of diesels is dropping but prime examples of 123's are still selling in the low $3,000's, at least around here.

Offer me a clapped out 450SL with a manual transmission for a grand and I will probably hurt myself by reaching for my cash too fast. I don't think any of them made it to the U.S. with a manual except for gray market cars though.

450SLs were all automatics, regardless of country. Only the 350SL could be had with a manual.

You shared with us that you scored seven times but not what you scored on. So I guess we have to imagine it.....doobies? Sex? Come on man, don't leave us hanging?

I did not say seven -- I said several.......

the show sets up starting Tuesday........ and anyone with a mission
is there to score any holy grail stuff,, which to me these days is any 30's gm pickup stuff--you CANT FIND IT anymore ( at pate anyway), and as usual the place is littered with any kind of whatever 20-30S ford stuf anyone wants--used or brand new steel.
I somehow managed to find the--un specified when I showed up on friday after 3.30 and before the guys --> from Nebraska shut down to do the Beer Drinkin and Hell Raisin all nite!

anyhow, notice how I coyly did not describe the booty in this post either

But since they moved it to the speedway I have not been able to attend. I just can't get around like I once did and there is a lot of walking involved.

Still, it was always great to go. Even my wife thought it was a lot of fun.
yea the got a thunderchief out there--like Johnson had em go bomb the telephone poles with--that were supposed to be missle launchers.

I have always liked COE's even thought the old ones would cook you on a summer day. Something about sitting right on top of the engine with only a piece of sheet metal between you and it.

I looked at a Dodge, a 1951, in New Mexico a few years ago. It was rough but all there. I was too busy at the time to take on such a project. It was interesting to deal with a truck where you needed to climb a ladder to just open the door.

Maybe I need to write a story with an old COE as a vital part and then, when the production wraps, I could pick it up cheap from the film company? The only drawback to buying a movie car is that they are long on looks and short on function since much of the time they are being pulled on a trailer while they are being filmed. Therefore they don't have to run but just now and then.

GMC man myself, there's a thread about one of mine here when I was thinking of sticking a 617a in it, if I ever do that one ill have to go lighter, frame axles etc,
there was a 40's Dodge in Kiowa ,--turn west at the blinking light. that was at the end of the 20th though , the old cogger would not sell the locals said.

I saw a show about the making of "the misfits" with maralyn. they had a badass ford factory crewcab being used behind the scenes,

The guy who owns the jeepers creepers chevy has emailed me looking for parts, as well as the guy who owns the Howard Hughes gmc coe bus, that was used in the movie industry and more than a few other notable ones.

This "cute" ford is well known on the west coast, it would have brought more when it was freshly recreated, its kinda faded / stale now.

I go thorough Kiowa a lot. There is not a blinking light there now unless you count the light for the school zone. But it really does not take long to see all of Kiowa and to the west of town is almost nothing but the Railroad tracks so it would not take long to look the whole place over.

There is a guy on the north side of town that seems to always have some forgotten Euro car sitting out front. Opel wagons, Peugeots, etc.....

I will see what I can find out. The way things move around here it could still be there.

And a word to the wise: Do not speed through Kiowa, or Atoka, or Savanna, or McAlester, or Caney, or Tushka.... Highway 75/69 is nothing but one long speed trap.
