Art Grimes D90?

So I was going through some forgotten directories of photos on one of my computers and came across pictures of Art Grimes D90 when it was for sale on eBay. Anyone know who ended up with it?

I have those photos also, saved from the Ebay advert and even emailed him to tell him how much I liked the vehicle, but never got a response.

I don't think it sold the first time and saw it advertised again several months later on another forum.

If you find out, let us know - I'm still curious. It looked like a well thought out/built machine.

Wonder if he sold the trailer as well.

Art, he probably though you were a stalker

Speaking of stalkers, I was at REI yesterday but did't see you. Were you there yesterday?

I saw a D90 on LRX (white SW with a trailer) from NV. Is that what you guys are talking about?

Is that a factory red?

Who made his tire rack?

Chris, do you have anymore specs on the truck?

Are you looking to buy it?

Sorry for all the questions, but that is a sweet rig.

I would like to talk to him if he still has it and still wants to sell it. After he originally listed it I never saw it relisted again.

The tire rack is one of the old TReK Outfitter/BP demonic units that were made by Fabracon (?) before they were discontined.

I dont have the spec sheet but have all the pictures from the original listing.

Sorry to ressurect something that is probably lost of beaten to death. I looked at his truck to purchase well before I bought the other red 90 owned by an Art (Art Vigil). Still curious if anyone knows what happened to it or what not. When I talked to him about it he said he had some sort of back surgery which prevented him from using it anymore? Figure if that's true than it was sold but seems odd such a capable vehicle would be totally lost from a forum like this. At any rate, if anyone has some pictures of it still would you mind posting them. I would like to take a look. Thanks!
