I am driving from the Midwest to Flagler Beach FL next week, and hoping to run across a rust free late 70's barn find Westy with 40k on the clock (and no gunk in the tank) in the $10-15k range along the way! A guy can dream, right? :flower:
Well, we might cross paths at the I-10 / I-75 or the I-10 / I-95 interchanges. What day do you expect to traverse I-10?

Ha! I reckon I will be at the I-10/ 1-75 interchange around mid-day on 4/3. Staying north of Atlanta on 4/2.

That is indeed a dream. But rust free survivors in your price range may soon be on the market.

I guess I am one who's guilty of not documenting Colin's visits these last two times. I will post something this visit however!

Tbh, I thought it was Colin's job the first time around ... :salute:

It is my job this time around too. I have pictures. I have stories. I need time. We will have our own dedicated thread, Filth, as there is a surrounding story as well. Staaay tuned.

Well, before you go, I need some help with this tank business where it only will allow 8 gallons in after if runs out of gas. So, you are not going anywhere mister. Sorry I missed you at the office.

I'm really sorry I wasn't able to participate in the fun this year. Good to see that you're coming through Seattle again though.
