Default Leggin' It back from the West Coast

Our own The Human Wrench recently had an adventure.
A buddy of his bought a 66 Barracuda and 65 Dodge Hauler from a guy in California.
They both flew out one way and drove the rig back over the last week. They were posting updates and Facebook live videos all the way back and developed quite a following.
Rev58, TwentyCarlo and myself were fortunate enough to meet them when they made their stop at our buddy Bird's house.
Here is a link to the pictures I took last night and a video of him driving the car for the first time since buying it. He was very satisfied with the race car and hauler. They only had a shock bushing fail and a power steering hose burst and the 2 speed rear end got stuck in low, which were all easy fixes for these 2 guys.
I am looking forward to seeing him run this car at the reunions at MoKan. They are out of Ozark - Sparta area in Missouri, so it wouldn't be a long haul.
Hope you enjoy.

Way cool. I think I like the hauler even better than the car. The way it was 50 years ago.

Wow I saw a video on the ramp truck site but did not know it was heading this way.
Look forward to seeing it in a few weeks.

Default Yep

Love seeing the old stuff. Looks like carburetors are the newest thing on it.
