Slap a mystery motor 1600 in it, then you can drive it onto transport and be done. Quick, simple and cheap.

I've been collecting BD headlights for years. Time to harvest the crop! I sold Kelly one set forever ago. Looks like I have enough parts to build a few sets I hope. Anybody else need BD headlights?

Ah yeee! OG big sliver. Not correct for Kelly's though.

It's hard to believe how close this bus has been and for how long. Especially when we're used to KCW's pace.

It was a really funny day when that Barndoor showed up! Smile Smile The shippers a driven a long way to get it to KCW and didn't know anything about Buses. They we're super confused as to why they were dragging this pile to a restoration shop and were even more confused when we all circled around the Bus and decided that it was actually pretty nice!!!! Well, for a Barndoor!Wink Wink Smile
