Wow....lot of truck there for the money. Now that would make a good parade vehicle....fill it with water and let it 'leak' visibly for the pleasure of the crowd - while smoking a cigar and flicking ashes out the window.

I think I had something similar as a toy when I was a kid. 1/16 scale or something like that?

Yell Kevin, I found one for him but he's a dumb a-hole and didn't go get it so I don't look for him any longer.

Inyokern is in the high desert. If someone were to make the trip to pick up this truck there are lots of things to see nearby. Gene Winfield's shop is right there on route 14 and Edwards Air Force base is just South of there. No more space shuttle landings but there is a boneyard for decommissioned commercial airliners there that is a sight to see. The town of Boron is near Edwards...for you oldtimers, that is where 20 Mule Team borax was mined. That is a pretty cool truck but more time and effort than a novelty truck would warrant for me.

I would imagine that this tanker truck was used to fuel aircraft at Edwards.

Just so I'm clear, the seller is in New York, the truck is in California, there's no title, no paperwork, payment thru paypal, and since the seller won't be there to meet you when you pick it up.....Does anyone else besides me see a potential problem here? Not to say the deal isn't legit, but there's always the possibility of more than one person with a shotgun nearby. Or am I just getting too cynical in my old age?

from the ad;

What you see is what you get

No title

I bought the truck a while ago and after the storm here in New York I will not be able to get out there to deal with it.

PLEASE NOTE:Payment must be made thru paypal within 24 hours of the winning bid

Was there a "trust me" anywhere in the ad?

You don't have to worry about anything as Anthony is a straight shooter ( no punt intended) and has been a friend for some years now, he's a great guy. Anthony, did you get the tanker up to your dads place. Happy upcoming Holidays to you and the youngin, Garry and Courtney.

Did you buy this truck the first time it was on eBay? It sure is a long way from NY. Transporting this beast would cost a small fortune.

Hey Garry,thanks for the kind words and hope you and Courtney have a good holiday as well.
I did buy it off ebay a while ago.The plan was to move it vegas to my dads house and store it there untill i came up with a plan for it.I just wanted to save it from the crusher but i wont be going out there anytime soon.I know a could call a scrapper and it would be gone quick.
I just would like to someone do something with it.I am surprised someone out that way hasnt jumped on it

Hate to see someone have to sell something because of misfortune. Hope you get back on your feet from Hurricane Sandy very soon.
