Talking Somebody PINCH me! I think I'm Dreaming!

Well, I got back the deposit on the Beachcomber...

But that's because I'm getting a BOLER!

I so happy, you just can't imagine! (Or maybe you can.) I had left a message at the house of someone with a Boler in their driveway, and after a couple e-mails and a meeting, it looks like I'll be getting his Boler! Yippee! It's already been stripped down to bare structure, and is ready for a complete reno. Like, how lucky can a guy get? I don't have pictures yet, but don't worry, they're 'a coming! And THIS time I'll take pictures of the entire rebuild, rather than starting half way through. Anyhoo, I should have some pictures in the next few days, and I'll chat at ya all later.

Cheers!

Too cool Cory and thanks for thinking ahead about pictures of the rebuild. I love to follow along and see the amazing things folks come up with.

Let's see now, you gave back the deposit on the Beachcomber... you mean they were paying you to take it? I'm guessing you got back the deposit you'd paid, right?

D'oh! Fixed it! And indeed that SHOULD have read "I got back the deposit." Freudian slip... I got / they gave = I gave. Oops!

Thanx for noticing!

And thanx all!

Cheers!

The little beastie is in pretty good shape overall. The door came off while driving down the road at some point in the past, but the damage isn't too severe. The frame is in mint condition, and as far as I can tell, there are absolutely no leaks anywhere on the body. There looks like a bit of a leak at the top of the door, but that's an easy fix. Anyhoo, it's in better condition than my first Boler was, so I'm pretty happy with it. Actually I'm pretty much giddy with joy!

That's all for now!

Cheers!

I love the color. I would have bought it just for the color, but the whole thing looks great.
