History
A car collector in Minot ND had recently (just days before) picked it from a farm west of Minot. Driving by on the highway at 65 mph I caught a gimps of her sitting on this trailer. I doubled back, drove into the yard and left it behind, thinking the price was too high. Within an hour I called the fella and told him I'd take it. It was a week before I could return. The guy said at least a dozen others caught the same small gimps between the trees that I did and rushed in to buy her. True to his word she sat there waiting for me, all on a promise to purchase over the phone.
