selling my 68 Safari

I recently sold my fully restored to original perfection (from axle to zip-dee) 68 Safari. Giving the title to the new owner was more painful than childbirth. The sweat equity accumulated in the restoration process was equivalent to raising teenagers. The beauty in the long run was seeing my next project roll in....a 63 Flying Cloud, which was like the birth of my new grandbaby! Does anyone relate?

Yes, definately!! It is kind of like replacing the beloved family dog- it can never be replaced, but you love the new puppy (AS) just as much.

It sounds like your Safaris' new family is very lucky!!!!!

Keep us posted on the grandbabys' progress!!!

No, I can't relate as I get too attached to them to sell them.

Why did you sell? Depending on the reason why you sold the trailer, hopefully you can find peace in your decision.

I can totally relate. Sold my polished/refurbished '76 overlander and almost cried as it left the driveway! Still keep pictures of it around cause I'm never going to polish to a mirror finish again, but loved it! Have an '86 Sovereign, but it will never be as pretty on the outside as the '76 was! Roomier & nicer inside, though!

I can relate also. When we sold our 72 Overlander, I wanted to cry. And to make matters worse, we heard they were tearing things out of it to use it as a hunting camper only!
Good luck on your new baby. Cant wait to see pictures.
