Do you know if the track is too narrow for my open trailer? You can use it and our truck, if it will work.

It's time for the guy doing the importation for us to figure out next moves, but if push comes to shove I'll get the track dimensions.

Oh and yes, the van pretty much IS a standard postage-sized box :lol2:

It's finally here!

With a borrowed truck and a rented trailer my Importer and I drove to Baltimore early on Monday morning.
There were a few issues and we ended being forced to stay in MD overnight, but after a looooong day brought it to MI by 7:30pm.
We'll need to make an appointment with the SoS to get it registered/plated, so in the meantime I'll look after a few things that this well kept 28 year old vehicle needs.

I’d love a little tipper truck like that.
Been looking for a golf cart like it, but this would be more fun.

Right, these little Kei trucks/vans are a whole bunch more practical in places like MI that allow them to be licensed for road use.
Ours is full-time 4WD and capable of 70mph, plus has heat/wipers/lights & even A/C so great all-weather protection.

Here are a few more pix...

Got new 13" tires fitted to the Shelby alloys, so the "+1" setup is now installed.

It's a big improvement over the stock 12" wheels that are fitted with snow tires :roflmao:
