Me "I don't own any, I just want to buy parts for a project."

No answer back from them. I am NOT going to spend $25000-$30000 on four pieces of rubber, some wheels and some steel.

I love the old Tucker pics! I have one of me with one I found in Fraser, right by the Amtrak station. I'll see if I can dig it up.

On a related note, I think I will build one of these but with some of my own modifications!

That is pretty damn cool right there but I don't think they make the differential any more. I have one and the belt drive unit. Where would one finds a set of plans for something like that?
