    Just noticed a nice looking piggy on eBay. Figured you pig lovers might appreciate this one. It looks like a great resto.

    The description is kind of funny given how extensive this resto must really have been:

    Steve does about two pigs a year and the odd 45lv (right landpimp?) They are all beautiful and probably a bargain for the money he gets for them.

    Second that... Still kicking myself for NOT buying one of his, would have been money well spent. I saw the 45LV as a bare body, he'd just finished the engine resto/reassembly, that thing was TRULY rust free, basically almost a sand/prime/paint truck! If there was any rust on that pig on EBAY, it's gone now.

    Same yard, different truck, I think.

    Owning a Stephen Radl restored Cruiser is a pipe dream of mine.

    Man - $18,800 is a freaking steal for the quality of the resto on that pig. TLC would want $60k plus for that truck :eek:

    One day, one day ....
