Back to the double-wide.

Alright, haven't talked directly to the Harvey but talked to my relative that knows him well and here is the scoop I got.

All work was done by Harvey/Harrisons Motorsports custom for the owner of the Greenbriar Resort. Apparently the owner is a larger-than-life guy...like 6'8" and 300lbs, and a billionaire, named - get this - Jim Justice (you cannot make this stuff up). To have room to "stretch out" and fit his large figure he had the work done by Harrison's. Essentially this guy has the "how much money can I throw at this problem" mentality (used to be my motto back in my single days before wife/kids came into the picture ), and contracted Harrisons to customize this toy for him.

I'll verify with Harvey when I finally catch up with him in person.

Interesting

Nice.

It mentions the hunting and coal and stuff.

I guess that 300 pounds would help explain the driver seat being all wrinkly??

"Justice enjoys hunting, coaching the girls' basketball team at his local high school, and dining at Applebee's."

Interestingly enough....we ate at that very Applebee's last night .

Interesting. Justice's truck? Really interesting. The guy that we met driving it was not Justice, but it was in Lewisburg - 4, maybe 5 years ago. Told me this long story about where it came from, etc. Funny.

That's the scoop I got...let me see what Harvey says though, but everything does seem to match up.

Oh, and Craig to answer your prior question from awhile ago....our place is in Renick. Do you get down here much anymore?

So you like Land Rovers, West Virginia, and Applebee's - sounds like you just found a new best friend.

I can see how he wouldn't fit in a regular Defender

He's like Big Tom Callahan.

By the way...this has to be the longest "sighting" ever. I'm sure my wife loves that this has consumed 1/2 of our trip...but Charles is posting pics from Italy so I don't feel so bad.

Yeah, this probably warranted its own thread since its so unique! Ha - my GF is always dumbfounded when she looks through our vacation photos and there are twice as many Land Rovers and other cars, and barely any other photos.

Charles, very cool. Business or pleasure?

Lav, nothing turns a simple sighting into a stalking quite like a restraining order.

Dude I've been on nothing but my phone for the past 2 days....download the FREE D90 app and you can load pics.

Or are you still using a Motorola Startac?

For that matter, the guy has access to coal mines. He can make you disappear. Forever.

Yeah and I just found out he drives the white SW I see heading downtown in the morning.

You know what they say about white SW's

Hopefully we'll be comparing 110's in a week or two when mine arrives. But I'm pretty sure his wins
