    1- white lightening- lift and fix -its almost camping season

    2- baja bug – because its almost camping season – install your new engine

    3- truck- cause you need to haul shit

    5- bankshot – so that we can race later this summer

    6- porsche – so that you can hang-out with the 356 guys who are driving through GJ and Durango for the west coast hoilday in Tucson this year.

    That seems like a whole year of work right there

    7- thing – its a late model -sell to Dawson unfixed so that he can spend a bunch of money and ruin it with a subi

    8- buggy – who cares -let it sit another year.

    Sell them!

    Old cars will be obsolete in the near future with the popularity if electric and autonomous vehicles.

    …And I would guess that more than half of all remaining vintage cars have been ruined with customizing…..the only ones that will retain value in the future will be the original/survivor/perfect resto types….Its already happening.

    Nobody cares about that bodydropped tubbed mini-truck POS with broken suspension that you and your homies built.

    God, that’s a good list. I’d work on those two buses! I might be interested in buying that Thing this summer if you decide to sell it. I’ve always wanted a thing and have never had one. Need to fix up my bus first. Keep me in mind if you decide to sell it.

    A thing was almost your first VW. I remember that.

    Didn’t you drive it home and Rags made you take it back?

    Yeah it had some sort of engine issue. I still give my father shit for that. I paid like $800 for it and it came with a new top, extra hood, extra fenders. OG paint. It looked just like Rustys.

    Lift up white lighting! Id say thats the best idea on that list. You’ve got the parts. Lets go camping.

     

    Id sell some stuff too, you’re only one guy, you can’t drive all of these at once. Hard to keep up a large fleet to always be ready to rock. I think having the sc, white lightning and your Baja ready to go would be the most fun. More camping/outdoors=happiness.

    Franz’s list sounds right. Apart from number 4 🤔🤪

    maybe number 4 is sell your Sportsmobile to an English guy, as you’ve lifted white lightning and don’t need another stock height white bus?!?! 😁

    My list; 1. Fix “White Lightening” with a lift back to stock height. 2. Keep “Blue Thunder” lowered and ready to tow “un-needed” projects to new owners. 3. Keep the Porsche to be buried in. That’s enough work to keep anyone busy for years with just maintaining them.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.
