Default Awaiting transport

Hello all!

Just an update. Continue to wait for Sancrest Transport to get a truck over to Jim's to pick of the 67 and get her here to Minnesota. The waiting is about to drive me crazy! Hopefully it will happen soon! I'll post some pictures on here once she is here! I can't wait to take her for a spin!

Clyde, they are very dependable but sometimes to save us money they wait a few days to get a truck going that way. We use them alot.

Default Maybe I was lucky?

in 2003 when I bought my hearse, I used one of companies that takes your order and then puts it out on the board for trucking companies to bid on. I placed the order on a Monday, got a call on Wednesday saying a truck would be in Wisconsin that weekend; the seller emailed me Sunday morning saying it was on its way and the car arrived Thursday morning.

Your fellow Northlanders are just as excited to see your "new" rig!

take your choice... I have 5 and all move under there own power, but only 1 doesn't stop very well........ like not at all, so that one is not going anywhere except into the shop when I have time for new brake lines. My best guess is it will be the 1969, so I can get Jim's brother to install the new plywood floor in the rear. It is also scheduled to go back to the body shop for the rest of the paint work, but you know how body men are.. It is always next week, next month, or as soon as I can make room for it.

Ya there like vampires bleed you dry a little at a time. spread it out and they can milk you for a bit. like undertakers just standing by waiting for some thing bad to happen to someone. you old guys on SS don't stand a chance.
