    Looks like an awful silly thing to just drop off at a gas station. Isn't that a sensitive item or something? I know if an M4 is then a howie must be.

    We couldn't leave our tanks anywhere without a guard if they were not on a train or in the motor pull. A guy even road in the truck if we had them low boy'd. I wonder if the guy who left it will have to have a dummy cord between him and it for a week.

    Someone should move it around the block. Can you imagine the guy's heart stop when he comes back to get it and it's gone?

    These are just observations.... and presumptions... Any confirmation or counterpoints out there ? ? ? ?
    I wonder if the dropside Deuce can tow it with the sides down?

    Looks like one of these new ones I saw at FT. Sill, I would rather have one of the self propelled kind, you wouldn't be looking for a lift all the time.
