If I were to read into that, I would interpret it as either something catastrophic happened during the tow or the contractor crushed them before receiving proper orders.

Been following this thread since the beginning with great interest.

Have been battling the Steamroller we call government for most of my long years.

With so much negative in our world anymore, I was amazed to see Will go to battle with a leviathan government agency that is totally out of control. In their defense, being tasked with protecting all of us from an unseen enemy following 9-1-1, and having to work within guidelines proscribed by a democratic nation, has been very difficult without stepping on toes and rights of the majority of us who are innocent law-abiding citizens.

Along with creating such an agency has come the power-hungry bureaucrats who believe they can trample our rights with impunity, and do so in a vicious fashion to their fellow Americans. Shame on them.

I believed that Will would fail miserably even attempting to stand up to a virtual hurricane of bureaucratic righteousness, let alone gather so many trusting souls whose trucks had been seized.

Accepting no payment for his services makes Will a fine and true gentleman of huge proportions, whether he succeeded or not.

And to reinforce my belief in the basic good nature of my fellow humans, to see all these grateful people buy and give Will a truck of his own, has made my day brighter, and given me hope in my own personal battles today and into the future.

Kudos to all of you involved for a job well done !
Thank-you for showing all of us an admirable example to follow.

Pretty freakin' cool...

We need to see a full write up on this truck.

I'm curious about the report that some vehicles were ruined by DHS. We need to hear more of this so we can rub it in their face.

Nice, I like that. I'd been thinking along the Seinfeld lines to, but has Michael Richards (Cosmo Kramer) as the LRNA Attorney. Perhaps Jason Alexander as the US DA.....

Cake anyone?

Did you see the picture of the rolling chassis with the wire harness wrapped around the prop shaft?

Looking Good!!! Consider naming it "Carte Blanc!" An obvious play on words for a well deserved "white" rig.

Such a cool story and so glad so many of these trucks are finding their way home!

Will, you certainly needed that truck with all the work you have been doing, and to all happy owners I wish you all the best
