He actually called me back awhile ago... Said someone would be picking up the Dart the weekend after Thanksgiving... I guess he meant "some" weekend after Thanksgiving instead of "the" weekend after... :lol:

Eventually it will roll down the hill next to the Turismo... :roll:

It's kinda in the way at the moment.

So,... Last weekend Andrew's BMW had some issues, so I had to use the car trailer to go get it...

The Dart was in the way, so it did wind up "down the hill"...

This weekend Mike H. calls and tells me the Dart will be picked up Monday (today)...

It's been raining here a lot...

Saturday I tried to get the Dart back up the hill and wound up sliding the Comanche down there instead... :oops:

Sunday I went back and tried again (with Mike helping this time! :wink: ).

We were able to get the Comanche back up to the top on level ground and used the come along and four tow straps to drag the Dart back up too.

Now the Dart and associated parts are right in front ready for pick up.

The Comanche is a muddy mess and has a flat tire. :lol:

Any bets on whether the Dart gets picked up today or not..?

Yeah, there was mud flyin' in all directions! I backed up to the fence and took a good run at it.

It doesn't help that I still have those old highway tires on the Comanche that everyone was worried about at Clay City... :lol:

I just got off the phone giving the transport guy directions to the garage, so hopefully today the Dart will be gone.

The Dart is on its way to TN finally!

I helped him load it up at lunch today.

Now it's just my own junk cluttering things up. :lol:

I've been told that many times over the years. :lol:

Always glad to help. I was just beginning to think that he didn't want it.

I'm glad he finally got his car.
