    Ex NASA, that's pretty cool. I work at the Kennedy Space Center. Did they come from Houston ? No funds right now but I may be interested later.

    You can probably tell from my garage that I used to work Space Shuttle.

    Howard, I may have to have you and Chris come over for an un-sticking party ! You won't have to lie in the dirt though so it won't be as much fun as Chris's Sterling LOL.

    It's funny, I think there are more of these restored in Europe than here in the U.S. I can think of maybe 4 to 6 restored C2's overseas, perhaps 1 or 2 here. But it seems like there are more unrestored C2's here in the U.S.

    Yes, both came from NASA Johnson Space Center. I believe they came here from New Mexico from the NACA days. They were used extensively to move test articles right up through the early Space Station days.

    So glad to see you have a shop building for that wrecker. As you have seen, they do not do well in the rain.

    I have a spare HXD if you end up finding out that yours isn't fixable.

    Thanks, I will keep that in mind if I can't fix this one. What kind of shape is yours in ?

    I had the C2 out of the garage for a little sunshine this weekend. Pay no attention to all the engine parts piled on the rear.

    That's what I mean, I need an unrestored one. First, restoring is fun, second, I never would ahve the funds for a restored one, and just buying a completely ready restored truck somehow takes away the magic.
