I was in search for a nice late 70's Wrangler to Tow behind my '77FC until I realized that they were bringing twice what my FC was worth;( I found a nice '79 Daisy Duke Golden Eagle jeep that would have looked great. Problem is they had that crazy automatic AWD system, not good for flat towing.

All the old "SUV" type things are sky high. Full size Blazer, Bronco, Ram Charger, Land Cruiser, Scout, all bring big money now. I found a 1995 2-door Tahoe that would have been a great toad project. No rust at all, but had almost 300,000 miles. It sold for $8k! It needed to have everything rebuilt, new paint, at least 50% of the interior redone.

I've got a nice diesel Scout and a 1990 Dodge diesel that I've always thought about making into toads but didn't want to tear them up by dragging behind a bus. The older I get, the more I think that I'd rather tear them up than let the mice eat them. Maybe it's time.

We already have a Ford Flex toad and getting an $800 Honda Odyssey ready for toad duty. I know about and have been in the Two Bird Club, but what's the record number of toads owned at once?

I towed a 97 Two Door Yukon and loved it until it started to rust out. It was the last of the two doors and had a manual shift transfer case. East Peasy to tow. I bought on the good side of the popularity, paid $4500.00 used it and abused it for 4 years and old for $3500.00 137,000 miles It would be perfect to tow behind my '97WB.

The Ram is cool, but that Scout is beautiful. I think it's time to tow it around and get it all chipped up. You only live once!

Maybe I just want a Scout too bad.

If I still had my Scout, I'd be towing it, I think. It was the kind of ride you could be crazy about without worrying about cosmetics. And it's an article of faith in the Midwest; I got good money for it in the end, rusted right up to the door handles.

In the Blue Box of bus I sold to Fred are receipts for Demco? lube pump and tow kit install on an old Cadillac or similar car. Something like $2k back in '88


There's still some kind of old school brake controller with idiot lights mounted near steering column.

I really like your Scout Dave. I have always been partial to them. It is too bad most ended up being rust buckets.
