Default Has anyone seen or heard about this bird?

From the vintagebirds.com site - I might be interested, but I know its been on there for a while.

Bluebird has been 95% restored with new upholstery, new oak cabinets, new carpet/laminate flooring.

If you look at this take it for a substantial drive. The gas engines are not to speedy and you really feel vulnerable when all the semis are passing you at 20-30 mph faster. Do some highway including some hills and rollers so you know how it runs.

There are others with gassers and they don't seem to be as timid as me about this issue so it might be just fine for you.
