    Well it is home in N ID now. It was loaded up yesterday morning and got here about 3 this afternoon. Cost me $1600 to move it, ouch. I hired a hot shot trucking company to move it. He was empty coming back from Boulder CO to Kalispell MT so Greeley CO, the pick up point wasn't too much out of the way. I was going to do it myself but after crunching the numbers for a trailer rental and fuel I was at $1500 and that didn't count the 4 days I would miss from work or a hotel or food.

    20200929_162522.jpg On the ground in ID. It's heavy! I just bought a 1988 International bus with a DT360, 5 speed manual and 4 wheel disc brakes with Budd style rims. Thinking about swapping engine, trans, and axles over. Or I have a 392 I could drop in it. Hmmm decisions.

    Nicely done, sir.
    I'm glad it found a good home.

    You do realize what a pointless thing it is to ask us here "should I buy this truck"? The answers pretty much always going to be "hell yes"
