    Default M887 goes away, comes back!

    Well gang, I watched my M887 leave the house for the last time lastnight. I didn't figure I would care but it seems that I do. its been around here for a year and I've seen it almost daily. Last night for the very first time, I watched it go down the road. The thing looks really cool going down the road. I had a similar experience last year when I sold my M35A2. Until that guy drove it away, I've never see it go down the road. At least both are still in my neighborhood and every so often I'll be outside working and hear the old deuce motoring towards the house. Too cool!

    Yeah, I know how you feel. I sold a car to my nephew recently that I found really hard to let go of. I had the car for ten years and put a lot of work into it to fix it up. It's hard to let go of a vehicle that you've put so much hard work and sweat into.

    Bringing a very old thread back to the top. Seems that I might just be getting this M887 back. Granted, the new owner painted everything white, even the inside of the box, but just the same, of he takes my offer It'll be home before long. Here's the thread where I reported bringing it home.

    The 887s are getting rare. I hope we strike a deal on it, I think we will.

    It sure wasn't white when I sold it and I hope to change in back when I get it. Need to start sourcing power steering gear.
