    What is the timeline for getting it recovered? Between NewEra ( he sold his 916 though) and a few of us lots of places to get it to fairly easy. I'm about 65 miles I think from Concord. A&H (Matt) is a great shop!

    If it is more complicated the breaks in my GMC Sierra, then thatís a big no.

    Auction terms say they want it out in a matter of days. So the immediate plan is to find a place to move it where I can keep it for 7-10 days until I get down there or have it shipped.

    An 1089 wrecker can handle it on a towbar. Or if i could get over there I could towbar it to a storage location. I just don't see myself over there soon enough though.

    Well one thing you can do is call a wrecker to move it to a yard (like a truck stop, etc). If you call around you can probably find a place - one way to do that is to call the wrecker and then ask where it can go. Often they'll know a place or the wrecker himself will have a yard. There'll be a storage fee but often it's reasonable and it'll move you forward in your endeavor. I ran into this when I had a LMTV at the side of the road with spun bearings in a faraway place.

    Gman I just love a great IMPULSE BUY and for sure a HEMTT ranks just about as high as you can go! Now just get the truck prepped and start having fun!

    I was watching that sale and had a friend in person there onsite. Did you buy the ‘89 model or the ‘85 with a blown head gasket? If you have a change of heart let me know I would be interested in it. I’ve felt defeated all afternoon about not buying the one with a blown head gasket for the price it sold for and the condition it was in. I really like the extra lube equipment added to them.

    Is he still nearby? Does he want to make a buck.

    yeah, $2500 is unreal.

    Bought the 89. Trying not to change my heart, hoping I can verify it starts and moves. Shouldn’t be that hard after I know that.

    Good luck on it! I think you got a great deal, are you going to use it or resale it?

    I plan on just driving it around, maybe doing a few events. That's it.

    Auction company was able to start it and throw it in gear, just need to find a shipper. Waiting for confirmation from JR Martin.
