I just read the thread you started,congrates.
Check out my thread "El Tortuga" I still have 2 more vehicles to get rid of so I can start working on it,I got one loaded this weekend and hopefully will drop it off on Friday and get other one loaded Friday.
Read my ins/tag thread might be easier to tag it in Tn as an rv and transfer title once in Cali

Another one ready to leave,cut off hitch and skid plate and then gas tank...dang rust


Didnt run and had lots of issues so I had to get it onto a borrowed trailer with no winch and no way to tow it onto it.



Notice snatch block attached to trailer A-frame and old 3/8 cable from blazer to......



Lisa stepped up and used her truck in the front yard to pull it onto the trailer,I love her :

******Disclaimer,I had 2 "dampeners" on the cable and it wasn't fray'd********

It "looked" nice all right,the paint was 15yrs old! Not sure what it was painted with but it sealed the metal so good it rusted out from the inside!,so bad the floors and walls where gone!!seat belts where hanging nothing to bolt to,no floors at all...very weird,if you push hard the paint popped it and a hole would appear
