    I don't believe Rusty Bob owns the car any longer does he?

    Read the last line of the ad. Dallas owns it now.

    Not sure if Dallas still owns the car, or how old this ad is, but I came across it on the net.

    More here

    Life runs its course I suppose, but it was particularly sad when Bob had to sell this car. He also stopped posting shortly after this. I wonder what happened to him...

    Gian, I used to talk to Bob and I believe he may have moved back East where he came out here from. The last time we talked he told me he was thinking he was going to go back and I never heard from him again.

    Has a rather ominous feeling to it.

    Be careful everyone. "Nomad" is using big words so I fear someone has hacked his computer.

    As I recall, Dallas (one of our members) bought the car from Bob, so you might want to e-mail or PM him to get some info...

    Dallas hasn't owned it for quite a while, it was in Henderson nv then sold to a dealer in Las Vegas, I would like to find out who bought in from the dealer.
