Well gang, I watched my M887 leave the house for the last time lastnight. I didn't figure I would care but it seems that I do. its been around here for a year and I've seen it almost daily. Last night for the very first time, I watched it go down the road. The thing looks really cool going down the road. I had a similar experience last year when I sold my M35A2. Until that guy drove it away, I've never see it go down the road. At least both are still in my neighborhood and every so often I'll be outside working and hear the old deuce motoring towards the house. Too cool!

Yeah, I know how you feel. I sold a car to my nephew recently that I found really hard to let go of. I had the car for ten years and put a lot of work into it to fix it up. It's hard to let go of a vehicle that you've put so much hard work and sweat into.

Bringing a very old thread back to the top. Seems that I might just be getting this M887 back. Granted, the new owner painted everything white, even the inside of the box, but just the same, of he takes my offer It'll be home before long. Here's the thread where I reported bringing it home.

It sure wasn't white when I sold it and I hope to change in back when I get it. Need to start sourcing power steering gear.

Very nice. All it needs now is paint. Hmmm, maybe a D60 front, NP435 4 speed and NP205 transfer case, then it would be perfect, lol. :-D

Front fenders are a little rougher than they look. 10-4 on all the mods listed but you forgot the 6.5 Turbo! :-D

Nice re-recovery! I sure wishI could have back a certain big red truck that I let go a few years back. I never thought I would ever be doing this stuff again. But I love it and realize how much I missed it.

Every MV I've ever sold I hated to watch it leave :cry:. I even broke down and hauled one to it's death at the scrap yard but it was tired and old and donated some of it's organs. That one was the hardest one to watch the grapple grab it and sling it onto the pile.
