Man, I just logged on. Looks like I missed the show. There was one in alanson today but I didn't go. They used to have a great show with hundreds of vehicles there. I called the guy in charge and he said the firemen took it over. Now they don't even have different classes. They just give trophys to the 50 nicest vehicles. And nothing else as far as events go. Last year they only had 90 vehicles. Sounds like it's going down hill. So I didn't think it was worth the hour drive. I went golfing at Garland instead. Lol

I know where there is a complete 78-79 rolling bronco chassis is someone around the Grand Rapids area is interested? A guy on cl messaged me, I told him I'd take it, but I'm beginning to rethink, because I have no room

He said he wants 125$ for it

Has hpd44 and a 9inch that's missing the pig, I believe it also has a 400 trans and transfer case, front drive shaft too.

I know someone can put it to use!!

I am hoping to get my ford 9 in this weekend. Would be nice to test it with a buddy around to pull me out.
