Leno's Garage TV show is/was on CNBC if I'm not forgetting already.
Maybe contacting CNBC would get his attention?

Bless you all for your interest and efforts. I am still hanging in there but so crazy weak & tired I can't get anything done. Can't even sit at the computer for very long.

Still no takers here in the Houston area. As previously noted...my hope is that someone will pick up where I left off and just finish this old gal. It is actually further along than appearances would have you believe. All the outer body panels are fabricated and ready to mount. I was holding off on installing them till the end just because it makes access to the underside so much easier.

Anyhow...thank you all again. I will try to check in once a week or so just to say "Howdy".

If someone wants it and hauling it is the issue we can haul it, just pay for gas. Any excuse for a road trip....

If we had the money I would be right there. Really special bus it is.

Blessings and prayers

Howdy @Tango,
I'm new to the forum as of today, and was directed to your thread by a couple of members after making my first post in response to a "for sale" ad. Yours is one of the most comprehensive builds I've seen!

I'm sorry to read of your medical situation - that totally sucks. I lost my brother to a very aggressive cancer about 15 months ago.

Unfortunately, I'm not your buyer, but I'm sure hoping Jay Leno can step in and shorten the timeline to getting this thing derivable! I thought of some of the other TV shows, like Rust to Riches, Monster Garage, and Chip Foose, but they all want to get creative and put their own signature on a build. Subscribed to the thread, and really want to see this thing pan out!

If you think Tango's bus is cool just check out his sculpting work! The man is a true artist and craftsman!

Hi Tango!
I am sorry to hear that you are ill and I know you must have limited energy. If you can muster any energy, would it be too much to ask to see photos of its present state? Does it run currently?
I apologize if you have answered these questions a million times!
Best to you,
Laura
