Whew, I'm relieved. It's been haunting my dreams since I saw it. And I will be heading down to Phoenix this week and could have gotten myself in trouble as I have no place to be doing a engine change et all. The space next to me here in Chino valley is a half full storage space. And I have been visualizing the pusher sitting there. Between my 345 and the 20 avion that is in the far side of the space. Whew

All the best to the new owner.
Cheers Richard

I'm sure we will be hearing from them soon.....look for the title "Can I fit a 360 Cat into a 360 pusher?".

Cheers

lol... I am installing my power pack on Diesel Donna as we speak. Takes more time, and less effort than I thought.

That 280 on E-bay sold for $26,000. That's kinda discouraging I have 20k in parts laying on the shop floor. If I spend 500 hours putting it all together it might be worth 26k ? Am I outta my mind?

He might have pulled it for other reasons. It would be well worth his money to put a rebuilt head on it and make it drivable. I have some Phoenix lay overs next month and was hoping to take a look at it. Probable saved my life that he pulled it. It would have been fatal to drag another project home.

Yup, you are .
Somewhere there is a disconnect, since purchase price plus improvements, maintenance and repairs plus time spent does not equal market value.
Can you say bad investment ??
The missing link seems to be the enjoyment of ownership...priceless

I think you're right, someone came to his senses and will fix it.

I can also relate to you dragging another project home and being fatal, as my "one who shall be obeyed" last wheel count put me almost to the century mark. Thank God she missed the wheels on the BBQ, although she was savvy enough to count spare tires.

Cheers
Tony

So...if anyone sees a 91 300 LE parked on the side of the road with a guy walking back 500 feet to a 96 diesel pusher parked on the side of the road heading home....you'll now know who it is.

At least we know it found a great home with an afficionado.

Cheers
Tony

Just curious. Did he sell it or is he getting it running for a sale.

Thanks Tony, hopefully you never see either one parked on the side of the road...perhaps a national park instead. The 94 is in fair shape inside and out, but needs some love. The motor is getting rebuilt and I'm having Kent's install a Banks kit on it while it's apart. I'll drive it back to CA and then decide if I want to keep it or my beloved 300LE.

Congrats on the find! Hope it works out well. You may have saved me from myself. Please keep us posted on the details.
