Good luck on the search.
BEAT up conventionals have been going for over 3 grand here in Fl lately.
There IS a nice-ish 1993 Thomas in Tampa for asking price of 3800.
I can get you the link in you'd like.They would probably hold it for you...

We won't be buying for another few months. But thank you for the lead! Currently I am just mapping everything out for the design and what products I want to use.
