    So sorry. Bloody ticker.

    Making an offer is very difficult. Anything anyone has in mind will be an insult to the work you did and money you spent.

    What are you looking at?

    I think you have accept that there are only a handful of people in the world who, when they modify a car, it is more valuable afterwards. "Normal" people like me and presumably you, do it because its what we enjoy doing. Its a hobby. I think its VERY unlikely that we could buy, modify, and resell any vehicle and make a profit.

    My mom likes knitting jerseys. It more expensive to buy the wool than to buy a finished jersey from a shop, but she does it anyway, and its the same when I modify a car or bike -- I know I'm spending money, but then if my hobby was skydiving or horse-riding I would be spending money on that too.

    I say don't worry about how popular it is or will be or how much it will be worth - do it because you enjoy taking something and making something better of it. ENJOY and GOOD LUCK.

    Thank you all for the good wishes and inspiration.

    During the past couple of days, since I put the truck up for sale, I realized that I actually like and love my truck and that I could not picture myself wanting something else. It is a one's off, just too awesome and sexy to let go. I will make another plan to generate the funds.

    It is going to stay where it belongs.

    Sorry oor die gesondheid Oom Naas. Sterkte. Hoop alles kom gou reg.
    Ek wou nou net sê, "Jisssie is daar nie dalk iets anders om te verkoop nie." Toe sien ek die goeie nuus.

    Best news ever !!!! If I can't buy it, you MUST keep it.

    Sterkte met die gesondheid, Naas. Laat weet as daar iets is waarmee ek kan help - al is dit net om 'n oor te leen as jy down voel.

    Ek wens jy weet hoeveel ek aan julle gedink het die afgelope week. Ek wens ek kon daar wees. Waneer alles reg is, sien ek julle definitief volgende jaar.

    Nou waar is daai videos?

    The Thing is parading in it's new roll as advertising model for my new company in George. I am moving to George and starting the first HI-Q in the city. We hope to open on 1 July, but I doubt it as a lot of work is required to get the shop ready.

    The Glady has now covered over 15 000km trouble free and is still going like a rocket.
