    Here's "Bess" getting her tune-up prior to us leaving for the southland next week. I've used the same "shadetree" mechanic for thirty years. He only works on classics, so the mo/ho is right at home. :clapping:

    Take your time, the weather in low AZ has yet to break. I suspect youll go to Flagstaff for a bit. Safe travels.

    Yup, we'll hang north until November or so. Can't wait to see the "wee one".

    "Bess" the mo/ho got a coat of wax today, a guy wandered by and said, "Good Kitty". I gave Bess a pat on the rear. She likes it, rather than ROTAR's attempts.

    What kind of motor does it have? I saw the "turbo diesel" lettering on the back. Is it pretty reliable? Any pics of the inside? I saw one of the "american picker" episodes where they bought an airstream bumper pool, and I was surprised at the value of some of those things.

    6-cyclinder industrial Isuzu, hot-rodded Chev turbo 470 trans w/ Allison innards. Very reliable, 15 mpg and she weighs over 15,000 lbs. It's a 1983 and I'd sell it (not) for prolly $65k.
