beauty and the beast, another angle

that sinking feeling - we have since jacked it up and blocked it under the frame, so there's no weight on the skinny rear wheels any more.

ok, now i feel better

made in cleveland, ohio (i cut the bottom off). note the weight, with and without batt.

this week's plan: move it part way into the garage to use the concrete floor to raise & block the rear. motorectomies, control panelectomy, and partial hydraulics-ectomy, then call the scrap yard to come get the carcass.
