It's a Ford...looks to be either a '51 or '52. Have to wonder what the story on it is since it has obviously been repainted and used as something other than a school bus.

I'd heard NASCAR also uses this trick.

When I'm pre-heating the oven at home, I twist the thermometer housing with the desired temp on top, because I can't see the numbers through the oven window. My wife thinks I'm crazy . . . .

GARF! $9K!? Really? Must be a fully restored, rare collectible model...yeah, right.

OPUS --- yes...make the stop! Then fill us in on the details (as long as it is less than $9K)

REDBEAR --- Do what works. All wives think we are crazy no matter what we do.

JACK --- Funny...we both want the same thing. But since you have more room...you have to pick up OPUS.
