JIm, What GAZ on ebay are you talking about????????????
About a month ago, was up several times, canvas, looked solid, in Massachusetts which is local to me.........I think he was looking for around $4500 and finally got it. There was also the Hawaii one around the same time.

I saw one at a wreckers in Honduras about 2-3 months ago. I'll see if I can shoot some photos when I'm by there next.

I'm thinking RV.....................

Translation lends a whole new meaning to the term "rice rocket"....... :lol:

6-cylinder overhead-valve Toyota 110 horsepower engine is domestically produced six-cylinder gasoline engine is the biggest glutinous rice output, fuel consumption is low, and robust and have a long life span, the handling is easy and practical performance SUGURE. エンジンにいわゆる粘りがあり、強力な牽引力をを発揮します、これは、頭上弁式の特長をはじめ、特殊形状の燃焼室、7,2の高圧縮比、ピストン、キャブレターなどのすぐれた機構に基づくもので、他のエンジンに比べ馬力あたり重量が軽く、容積当たり出力は大きく、また燃料消費が少なくてすみます。
