Welcome to the board, I've also got an '87 Tithonus in the NoVA area. You're welcome to come check it out and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have - either at Happy Hour or before.

I'm keeping mine, and have no plans of selling it. Plan is to restore it (or not) and turn it into a camping/roadtrip car. The final destination even though a bit ambiguous is Argentina, but we'll see down the road.

Tithonus coming to northern VA

Ah comm cables.
I'm trying to sell mine but not really hard. I saw another one that I like but costs more and I'm out of toys money for now. Most probably will be keeping it. It's fun to see how many hits it gets on eBay!

The vessel arrived yesterday to Baltimore (Oberon is the ship) and a couple hours ago we received news that they cleared customs. We will be there tomorrow to pick them up. I hope you get yours as fast as we did!

Put your VIN where it said "cargo ID" and it will give you the status of your truck

That was a great bit of info... Turned out my truck was NOT on that boat.. Contrary to what my shipper and paperwork had said... Last minute boat change after paperwork was done and sent to me caused it to be on another boat without letting me know.. So I was constantly location tracking the wrong boat.. But it has hit the shores here now but sadly not enough time before the holidays interrupted...
