Hi Len,

Curious about licensing these in your State? Straightforward?

Hi OldBusBoy,

I guess I'll find out when I go for the VIN inspection. I don't *expect* any problems, but you never know.

Thanks Arno. It is looking like someone else may be finishing this project. I have been discussing a trade and I think we have agreed in principle...once the trade takes place I will let you know. It will still involve a project.

Love the part about "Please allow the phone to ring at least 20 times. He will be in the back watching the news, and needs time to hear, and then respond".

Hello There,


Your Ape is fantastic and unbelievable

I live in North SD county and work in Temecula and travel a lot to Italy

Could I see a recent pic? Do you still have it? Could we connect in some way to see it? Would you be at all interested in selling it?

Thanks
