WK,
Definitely subscribed. It is great to see that not all was lost. I agree that you got to laugh, cause If you can laugh later, might as well laugh now. God bless.

Windnot,

If you decide to rebuild, and you need a new carb, I have a 6-month old Weber 32/36 that I will gladly donate to the cause.

I may have a few other odds and ends laying around that you could use, as well.

Let me know, my friend.

Matt

OK, no problem, just PM me when you need it to roll and we can figure it out.

Thanks. The name of the Jeep and the idea of a "flame off" restoration was suggested in the other thread.

So...

Being the honorable man that I am... I stole it fair and square!

Today will probably be the last day for a bit working on the Tonka Jeep/Phoenix. We're expecting the first winter rain later this week and I really have been avoiding dealing with the garage. And I've just about stripped down what I'm tossing so it needs to get moved and tarped for the garage demo. After the garage is up I'll be able to do more with it.

I'll most definitely be around in other threads, but it may be a bit for an update in this one. I really want to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity to me. It has really lifted my spirits and believe me they were down! Thank you again so much. I've said it before but I am humbled by your friendship.

Looks pretty good from a distance!

Thank you. Right now I need to wait for my garage so I can break it down further.

Wish I could just send ya a prefab garage. Like was said earlier, keep an updated list of stuff you need. I don't have many parts but I may have something you need. I'm glad to see your spirits are up and your going to rebuild the Tonka. Wish it was possible to have something similar to an Amish barn raising. The members here would have you back on the trails by Christmas. Love the thread title too btw.

Been out of pocket for several days. Not sure what to say. Man, I hate it for you. I can't even imagine. I will be keeping an eye on this thread and maybe I can help in some way. Dang, I just don't want to believe it. Your attitude is great and makes me want to work on mine.

WindKnot, did you have a #1 billiard ball as a shift knob? What are you going to do with the Phoenix? An orange #5 for the color? I happen to have one I could ship you...

Totally unnecessary, but thank you.

Wind Knot,

Jack's expression in your first post pretty much sums it up. That is one determined dog that wants to move forward and get things done. Dogs often project the attitude (for good or bad, this case good) of the master. I would suggest you make him your assistant project manager/ram rod for the projects ahead.

Good Luck
