[tcb] Re: What size engine for the '59?


Yup, kinda made a half hearted joke that I was thinking about selling it and 
got 3 PM's within a few minutes. As Emily said, Tom and his grandson Cory from 
VOSA drove down friday night (arriving at midnight) looked at it, stayed the 
night and came back in the morning and gave me a deposit. As much as I hate to 
admit it, It was more of a project than I could handle right now.

Said he has an addiction.  Also, left our house and said he knew of a 21 window 
in Waco.  Don't know if he bought that one too.

No.  Somebody drove all the way from San Antonio at 10:30 at night.  Looked at 
the truck in the dark. Stayed in a hotel and came back in the morning and gave 
a deposit.  Like I said, all done in the matter of 2 or 3 days.

Or was it?

Was I asleep? 
I thought I had been doing a pretty good job of reading my emails, but I missed 
the one where you said you were going to sell you double cab.

I disagree.  I'll take disc brakes any day, especially in Dallas traffic.

Paul, did you upgrade your Bus from stock or was it done by the PO? Do you get 
points taken off at shows for not being stock? This Bus is so close to being 
all original I'd hate to change anything I don't have to but saftey is more 
important - that's why I am going with discs for the front
