Quote from: mini on June 30, 2019, 11:32:21 pmYes.I bought Sam in 2011. Roscoe and I have a ironclad agreement. If we sell Sam, it has to be to the other one. I have completely refused to ever sell him...until this year.In January I stopped to look at a old truck that I have been eyeballing for years. Me and the owner hit it off. Before I left that day he offered it to me at a price that was way less than what I expected, and in the range where I couldn't say no.I called Roscoe and we talked it over for a long time. Sam is special. But I could take the same amount of money the other truck was offered to me for, put it in Sam and never get close to the level of restoration the other truck had.So Sam went back to Roscoe (temporarily, albeit for several years I'm guessing). You may retrieve him after preaching my funeralRoscoe came over yesterday and drove Sam back home. Not sure "drive" is correct. Herded, perhaps. Prayed him home. But he did it! and did it well..For the first couple of years I owned Sam I probably put 20 miles a week on him, back roads mainly. Since moving over here he's only gotten maybe 300 miles on him in 5 years. Mainly cause he has no brake lights or turn signals.Roscoe drove Sam ~130 miles yesterday.Roscoe put a few gallons of gas in Sam, drove about 100 miles and realized he had sucked every bit of gas down his gullet. A few gallons more, and he made it "home". It is claimed that 235 equipped trucks can get up to 16 mpg. Beside I can tell, Sam got closer to 10. But I WAS pushing him- old boy ran 50-55 mph the whole way, and he hasn't been driven that far at one time in over 30 years I know.Few if any of the gauges work in Sam. He's a fun challenge to drive.
