O.K. I had to talk to Kelly about this because he is a partner in the corporation. This is what he thinks:
I will first send you pics of the truck and trailer so you can see what condition it is in currently. We had started the intial restoration before that fell apart so it is much like the truck in Dillon...stripped down. With that said Mack had already provided us with the replacement parts for the exterior and I can have those inventoried if you need to know what those are. Evel negotiated that deal so I am not in the know as to what exact parts they included.
Now, relative to what we would like to get out of this.....Kelly and I think that if we could get $50,000 for the truck and trailer initially we would be willing to make this agreement: If a person would invest the money in the restoration which we feel would be in the neighborhood of $150,000-200,000 to complete relative to restoring it to the way it looked in its most original state.....we would be willing to become 50-50 partners in the resale and give back the original $50k investment before splitting the profits. Does that sound like anything you would be interested in doing? We are currently in that same negotiation with the factory in Pennsylvania but they are currently in some sort of transition and not ready to make a decision as of yet.
For the record, I had someone else buy it and I bought it from him for only $20,000.
I wish he only knew how many times that has happened. Hey Gerry, wanna sell your crash car? lol
