Found it on USedVic. Buddy was from Vancouver, and the ad was only up for a few minutes. It's all in the timing.

OK. Truth be told, that's not the picture of mine. They're tricky to get a good shot of. Mine's not quite as cherry, but it's all mine.
It's got just the right amount of patina to suit Coral.

I always figured that the universe kinda owed me one.
Not sure why I figured that, but now we're square.

Pretty killer finds. Nice score.

And it keeps on rollin'......

This guy comes in today. He used to service advisor for a dealership in England. He's downsizing to a condo, and found a bunch of old literature he wanted to pass on.

Like a little time capsule.

Super cool!
I bounced the name off Charlie (Our oldest timer).
He remembers Rob Reid. Used to be foreman at one time. Moved to Satspring to run a Bobcat business apparently.

Yeah, but the boy blew the head gasket, so it's off the road for a bit.
