If you're gonna have one of those, you need the accessory delivery van and the dog.

WOW! that paint is amazing, looks like the whole think was dipped in color chrome. Amazing reflection.

Well, the top photo has been post processed using Lightroom4 with Matt Kloskowski's presets and Topaz Adjust to add to the depth of the paint, but yes, that is a very deep paint job and absolutely smooth. The reflections you are seeing are about 30 feet away.

Yeah, so would Peterson. It was still in "barn find" condition when I saw it in 2008. I took a peak in the windows when I was there and it looked like it could be fantastic.

Did you see the exhibit when you took that picture. I just happened to luck into it, I took my GF to LA to get some publicity photos done and the photog was about 10 blocks away from the Peterson, so I went while she was doing the shoot.

You would have loved it. It's a shame the website doesn't have more info. I wonder if you can buy the catalog book online. I was a little disappointed they didn't have a Travco (or the original "Frank Mobile Home" the first mass produced RV) or a VW Westfalia Camper. Oh well.

Anybody around here interested in taking over the reigns on this thing?

I hate to get rid of it after all the work I've put into it but I know deep down neither this or the new truck will ever get completed as long as I have both.

I've invested about $8,500 but am willing to consider "reasonable" offers.

Any takers?

Got me some toy hauler, motorhome, mobile e-smoke sales aspirations going on and this would be where it all starts from.

The IDI is a real slug with the C6 behind it but it runs well, pretty hard starting in the cold but I just got and oil pan heater for it. I'd love to find a transfer case and differential for it but shift on the fly may be a real trick.

It went hunting this season and makes hauling gear way nicer. Looks like a 4wheeler could be driven right in the back doors. Pull the wind screen and the 640 should fit in the back too.

Mobile e-smoke sales? I think that needs an explanation

I smoked for more than 30 years and have tried many ways to quit the tobacco. Although it still takes serious will power the electronic cigarettes have been the best answer to a terrible habit so I have started to sell them, service them and consult for people interested in them. There is a bunch to learn before jumping into electronic cigarettes if you want to do it right.

So with this I have started work on a web site and to avoid overhead expenses of a brick and mortar store I'm going mobile. On the web site I will list where and when I will be for potential customers. This way they will be able to taste e-liquids I produce at my juice bars and see products I sell first hand.

With this said I feel I should mention in most cases your convenience store cigarette looking electronic cigarettes just don't cut it. As well be careful where you get your e-liquids, some bad stuff has come out of China in past years.
