    The owner of this 1994 75 cab chassis junked it after the heater blower caught on fire.
    Someone told him it would cost $3k to fix so he pulled apart an otherwise perfectly good cruiser with 200000 klm on it:mad:
    Last time I spoke to him there was just the frame and a steering column left:rolleyes:

    Man! I'm salivating over that turbo charged diesel. Is that an HZ? It even comes with a/c.

    I like the sneaking over the fence picture, and getting the old fingers pulling the fence away was just wicked! :grinpimp:

    It had 500000 klms and the owners were not interested enough to meet me and get it going so I passed. I think it went for about $2k.
