Yes, that's the one, I get to go in Ken's Batcave and see his goodies when I take my truck down to Norm and Jimmy. I can't imagine why someone would want to tear down cause it sure as hell doesn't need it. Color change maybe?

Definitely nice.

Could be just being transported between Fort Lauderdale to Sag Harbor, NY.

Driver probably didn't know.

Read this and was reminded...

There was one like that around here that I would spot at one of the support buildings on Middle Belt Road, near Metro Detroit airport. NAS 110, outside all the time, driven as a daily driver, tired, rusty, dirty, just kept on truckin'.

Saw it for years and years and now that building is abandoned (for a number of years) and the 110 is long gone.

That is indeed the truck I recently finished. It was sold to a long time Range Rover Customer of mine, and it is spending the summer in the Hamptons. No idea about the crazy story about going up there to be rebuilt. Pure nonsense.

Looks good. You paint inside too? This is a great idea for these trucks. Make them look less GIJOE (knowing Snell is half the battle) and suddenly they become the ultimate Hamptons mobile.

Zero its all about the looks but I guess for sound proofing you can wear cobra commanders mask.
