      If the bid doesn't get a lot higher than where it's at, I'd cancel it for sure. I don't have that kind of cash right now, but would trade you my diesel caddy plus a little cash for it if you're interested. I'm over in Ocala.

      Good to hear, !

      Keep it for another year, advertise it in some local Dubshows for fair money and you will see the buyer comes out and you have enjoyed the car longer.


      keep sending me pics and vids, this keeps me motivated finishing my damn build

      I'm glad to see it didn't go, and hopefully your wife will understand that it's divine intervention!


      If you're keeping it now, I think I'm just gonna wait and randomly message you the end of spring... It'll be worth a shot.
