I'll give the guy $500 and no more. I don't have to have it. I mean it's cool, rare, the right size, and my daugther really wants it. But, from what I have seen on some of the restorations here, it needs alot. For my own piece of mind I'd put a new frame under it. My best guess would be about 10 to 15k to make it real nice with me doing all the work. I don't want to pay $4000 for a shell.

I think you can do much better than $4000. You really have to figure you'll put at least $8,000 - $10,000 into it by the time you're finished with it if it needs floor/frame work and lots of interior work. That's if you do all the work yourself. Good to hear from Ben again! Wondered where the brother to my bambi II went!

Still there, I went over back in late Jan. to get some interior pics for Melody Ranch and the guy couldn't find the key. So I'm done, I gave him Melody Ranch's phone number and he is like do have his email. I said look you have my number I'll give $500 any day of the week I'm two blocks away. Their might be $4000 for you a phone call away, but darn you have to make some effort. Not sure if Melody Ranch ever contacted him. If it's still there in a year I might pay him a visit, but I'm pretty much over it.

I did and now he wants 7000. Some great Folks called him, or went by, and told him the famous "IT'S WORTH 20,000$."

He's a nut case, sorry it didn't work out. I'm glad you didn't drive up here on a whim and have him pull the plug.

Ugh it's gone drove by tonight, actually I drive by it everyday not there. I guess I waited too long to hit him up again. I was going to wait till next month to bug him again after the kids were back in school. Oh well maybe next time maybe somebody on here got it. Darn Darn Darn
