Winding up a west coast road trip with John Kramer. We stopped in and visited some of the great and famous Oldgasser's along the way. The truck is starting to drag and I was thinking that John was going to make me take a bus home if he found anything else to buy, really, the back of the cab is packed and I barely had room to sit. Notice the Coke cooler strapped on the tongue. The Dodge Ram had the power but notice we could pass anything but a gas station. The Wayne 730 was a surprise find for John, we really did not have room or capacity for it but John could not stand to leave it sitting so John said "Tom it's you or the 730"....I found the room and had to not eat anthing the rest of the way home to save weight.

"Notice the Coke cooler strapped on the tongue." Hmmmm I only see twine holding the Coke cooler on. Ok I'll give you the benefit of the doubt... its rope, just looks thin. (certainly not a strap by any imagination) LOL LOL LOL What a haul. I have never been on a "hunting" expedition like that. Would be the highlight of my collecting days. Color me jealous. John
