I love to see the fuel burn. You would probably have to put a second tank in the basement.

Already holds 300 gallons, that should get me at least 100 miles down the road.

Their was only one bidder up to a few minuets ago. Now two. Anybody need a proxy bidder :-) These are probably from NARCO boats and subs. Go FAST. My bet is they go for about 2500/3000$ and it probably cost 4000$ to get them in a container and shipped to a US port.

When I was in, I got near there, and a few other places in SA. Without saying much, and I know some on the WOG know about this. 'We' have a permanent presence down there.

I spoke enough Spanish to say hello. I usually served with an other service member who was fluent. Once I was in Chile and I had a guy who was a Colombian, another shipmate with me. More then once we went to a restaurant or a shop and he start talking to them. Then you see the shop owners face drop and my buddy turn to me and say, 'we got to get out of here'. One time a guy went for a slingshot. I found out that during the Pinochet rule, he hired a lot of Colombians to do the dirty work. Lots of families down down there lost loved ones in that time. They don't forget. It didn't matter we were US (for obvious reasons). A few times my buddy had to write in phonetics for me so I could go talk to a person who we knew would not let him in the room. Usually if I tried, they come back in broken English and we make thing work. I went back not much later and the command hired me a local translator. Got to meet some of the teams who trudged through the jungles trying to keep us safe.

That seems about right, but a little less gear would be nice. 73mph at 2000 in 5th.

There will be 2 different 4000s,you need the long one,it has a place for the PTO.

What about an axle? That should be easy? 4.88 gearing or something like that would be about right.

Andy could cut it down to create a tubbed look.
