Hey Joe, tell your buddy I'd be interested in the V8 complete for spare parts.

Thanks,

Rob

Hmmm, I think I may also need a garage stretcher. I now have to back one of my trucks up to the door to keep it closed. Joe can you also send me some building supplies along with the V8, Buddy ole pal?

Thank You kindly!!!

Sorry to hear of the misfortune. Happens more than it should. All you need is a length of chain, trailer hitch, mile of country road, and a bottle of methyolate for equalization with the seller.
