I am admittedly jealous. I have been looking for a nice 30SK for several years.

My high school friend had a green dodge truck we called the JD. The third cylinder threw a rod ,wrecked the crank journal, he pulled the head took out the piston cut a oak plug beat it in the empty cylinder, put the head and pan on and removed the push rods and drove it like that. Hence the name John Deere (JD). Those slant 6 engine ran for ever!

Then what?
Put it back on the pole ( not used since the 60s anyways )
Take it home put it up in the yard to scare the wife?

Trouble with collecting stuff and talking about it you start to pick up on other people's habits and decide that something else might be fun ha ha

That HEMI powered air raid siren is at Big Daddy's museum in Florida. I was just there in September.
