Depending on where it is, Acme Trailer Works in New Cumberland can pull the Tommy Gate and install it on another vehicle for you. They've been refurbishing a number of Penske trucks lately - both vans and straight trucks - and might have a line on a replacement for you. Ask for John Lenz (there are three Johns there) and tell him Tom recommended you talk to him.

Thanks guys ... I'm just over this FAIL. Found a scrapper to come get it and another van we had today. I don't even want to mess with it anymore.

Currently sitting in my office and watching two guys on the security cams wrestle with the lift gate now since the truck burned while it was down.

For those interested in steam locomotives, @brian
Visiting the Strasburg Railroad September till the beginning of November is the Norfolk and Western Class J 4-8-4 No. 611.
Beautiful streamlined steam locomotive built in the Roanoke train shops back in the 50s.
I am not sure if there are tickets still available to ride behind her, I am sure they will add more throughout her time there, still an awesome site to see and hear.
Rummore has it she leaves Virginia tomorrow, unfortunately I won't be able to chase her up (that adulting thing called work) but will have the privilege and pleasure of an in cab experience in October.
Completely random, but I have been following the Facebook page and they just fired her back up this weekend and am excited to see her in Action again since 2017.

So I am a fan of a few different web series car shows and I started with Roadkill from the beginning, so I follow those guys on social media alot. While I'm not much of an go fast in a straight line kind of guy, I thought this was pretty awesome. David Frieburger from Roadkill and Hot Rod magazine shared this photo of a 4Runner at this years drag week that's being held this week. Gears are starting to roll in my head of how I can possibly combine the SC400 and my old 4Runner into a Wheelie 10s monster:
