Thank's man....but I just don't have the facility to do an extensive restoration on the truck at this time.Congrats on the 125 Dirt71 and just and FYI I have seen your work on the last 123 you had and trust me when I say there is NOT a BIG MACK in the country that wouldn't be honored to be owned by YOU!!!
I am sure it has everything to do with where you are and what kind of Code Enforcement people you have in your county - but - Does a Pole Barn structure require a building permit?Concrete is on the ground...now the roof. Suck's spending all this money just to get set up to work on the truck, when if I had a shop like in the past I would be far down the road on restoring this M125. I thank God every day for the work I have on my schedule to re-stack some fund's.
Sometimes you have to make small steps forward to make progress at all. I have been living a similar situation on this end for several years - I had to liquidate all my MVs, radio equipment, tools, etc. in order to stay afloat. It's a long road uphill but I am making progress as you have been, and am now beginning to get to the point I can start replacing that which I lost. Sometimes God gives you something which knocks you back on your a$$, but enables you to get back up on a stronger footing later, a better man in a better situation.Concrete is on the ground...now the roof.

Karl,We have a HUGE flood diversion in the works around Fargo its the largest project in NDs history at about 3 billion $$! I have a warehouse a mile or so down the road which I use to store my Military trucks and it turns out its in the way of the new diversion its in what they call the ponding area? Long story short they want me to accept their offer that is about 200K short of replacement value which is not going to happen. Then they talked about a land trade and sent me 4 parcels of land and one of these looked very good but when I said this one interests me they then informed me that it had been pulled and wasnt available. Its taking way to much time and I really just want to be left alone to do my business, guess THATS impossible! I envy you Dirt71 at least your making HEADWAY in the right direction!
Please do, I would love to see it....Cool! I'm glad that truck went to good home!! If I'd had one more beer that Friday night, I might have hit the buy it now myself!
I've got a US Army color pic of that truck around here somewhere that I'll try to dig out and post up.
