You knew, you just forgot. I was all over it until I learned the amount of work required, plus the price was too high.

When Shayne pulled up in front of my house with that rig I thought it was Janey, too.

I hope he got south before the snow.

Paint is easy to resolve...this will be a truck valued 3x what Shayne paid for it when he is finished. Sure some money and time will go into it. But that is what he does.

I can't wait to see it done...only a matter of months

It's gonna take more than paint and bolts to get to 3x. No import documentation or proper title work will be the biggest challenge.

So this question might have been asked already... But what does this bring Shayne's Camel Trophy number up to?

only for a US sale. But there is interest and value in CT vehicles all over the world

so when its 25 he drives it to a border crossing and does a perm import. In the meantime he would likely be able to get a temp import for exhibition purposes once its together and documented. I think thats of minimal concern.

Uncle dough is on the right track... I didn't buy this to sell it, it goes with my other trucks, it will be "restored" here once I see what panels are saveable, right now I am debating the whole "what makes it original " debate... I believe a good deal of the damage has been done after the event as I t was on a game reserve down in Belize sitting in the jungle for a while and since it was pulled apart and left to rot in some shops back yard and been moved numerous times some of the panels have been ripped.. So it's hard to tell what is original camel event damage and what is not.. Not doing it for the amount of its worth, I do it to preserve as many camel trophy vehicles as I can. I don't think my collection will end with this one although they are getting harder and more expensive to find, but sometimes they show up when you're not looking.. This truck as with the others will be coming back to Australia with me so the title issue isn't a problem, even though it was brought in legally many years ago, before all this debacle started. And to answer another question this brings the total to 4 vehicles and lots of memorabilia... Now to find one of the RIBS.. There is one in the keys but the guy is out of his mind on price and it's pretty neat and missing desirable stuff..

Shayne is definitely one of those guys influencing market and demand on these vehicle... him collecting all these makes it harder for other people to find these, and therefore more valuable.

Happy I have one.. sorry for the guys who want one and can't find one. Blame Shayne, send him back to Australia and force him to leave the Camel Trophies here!

Yeah, the guy who has had it for the last 8 years definitely did it justice, he was one of those guys who thought he wanted one... He was into it for the tune of $32,000... And you see where he was at.. And I've seen/got his receipts...

------ Follow up post added March 6th, 2015 09:51 AM ------

And the guys who really drive the prices up are the guys who buy them, spooge them up and sell them for $100,000...

I can't believe I'm going to say this publicly... BUT in this case (and probably never again) I've got to give Shayne credit for dragging this thing out from its certain demise and endeavoring to bring it back to its former glory…

And you're just saying that coz I've got a nice set of lock and folds here..... Hmmmm, I wonder how they would look in a camel... Or an expedition 130... I'd have to hack up a good cage to make em fit.. But I can do that since I have a couple of spare ones laying around collecting dust..

Im actually not saying that because you are holding some of my valuable accessories hostage..Im saying it because I know first hand what it takes to restore something of historical value and often times the time and dollars spent far exceed the value… I did it with a pre war commuter yacht (hence my screen name) and it was a huge endeavor and one that alot of people talk about but very few people actually do.
