    Well done! Looks like that was a squeeze getting that into your trailer!

    I note your signature says buy/sell/trade. Please keep me in mind if you come across any scout cars for sale. I am plugging away on my car, but keep looking for a better one.

    Mike, there's a guy at Knights Landing Calif. who sells halftracks in this condition on e-bay. He's got several. Do you know him??

    Yep I will send you a pm. The second recovery attempt was a miserable failure due to some mistakes on my part. Almost got stuck up there too. Going back with some tools so I can get the tracks unstuck.
