Is that Dan's truck? Looks like before it got its dose of salt from Sandy.

Why do you ask? Did you not stop to offer help?
-I- even U-turned for a disco on the side of the road. Driver looked at me funny/reaching to his inside pocket when I asked if he needed help.....

He didn't ask because he didn't need parts going in the direction the guy was heading .

I couldnt tell if these had been cleared or not. Im pretty sure they all stay put until they are released or seized. Once seized they're crushed with all the Pumas they're finding around the country.

When one of mine had a hold on it in NY and was to be inspected I know it never moved from its location when it came off the boat. If they inspected or not I do not know but it took 2 weeks from when ship arrived and someone was nice enough to leave windows open and the ignition on for a wet seat and dead battery. Better than what could happen if it was not original I guess.

I was in my office... Someone called me to let me know.

I'd probably yell at the Disco guy to sell that POS.

I've had the same dead battery experience three times in a row. No window problems yet. All have had about a teaspoon of fuel left in the tank though. I now know to turn the key first to see if fuel needle moves. If not, I bogart 5 gals off one of te Lot guys while he's giving me a jump. Still embarassing though.

I had the same problem in June. When I went to pick up my truck at the Baltimore port, the windows were open, the door was wide open, the battery was dead, and the truck was ransacked. It looked like the DEA went through it. The escort had to give me a boost (not the wheels).

Don't forget that the longer they keep the truck, the more you pay for storage.
