Those 3 days will be remembered for a lonnnnnnnnng time. The only problem is us
who are in the unrust-belt states is we are picky. I turned doen a 5 window cab
that had a hole on the floorboard about an inch around for $200. Too much rust.
Oh well, I am trying to not be so picky. Since I have been on this listserver, I
have seem many pics from the east with "before and after" shots. I was so
suprised to see people actually fix rusty trucks. I thought to myself, That rust
bucket belongs in the crusher. Then, I have to wonder about safety. Are those
old repaired rusted cabs safe? I'd be inclined think they are not.
