2 new finds to restore!
« on: September 04, 2008, 01:02:45 pm »
I posted here awhile back on the classifieds hunting a Defender with no luck. I saw on Ebay that a guy had a cocktail version. He had it set up as buy it now or make offer. I sent him an email with an offer and he agreed. When I called him about it, I mentioned that I really wanted a stand up but this would have to do. He says "I got one in very good shape. It's yours for 400 dollars" SOLD! I'm on my way to Atlanta to pick it up on Sunday. About 125 miles one way. In the mean time, I'm looking on Ebay again and I find a deal on a Raiden 2 cab in very good shape 100% working. Again, it says make offer. They accept my offer. This one is not as far as the Defender and it is on the way to get the Defender. Just wait until the wife finds out! This may be my last post! Pics to follow!

Is Tracy him or his wife?  Did she already find out?

Jesus, man, let her out.  They need sunlight or they get all pasty and depressed.

Nice find on the Defender.  Love to see the Williams games getting restored.

The funny thing is that she will whine and moan for about an hour but she will be the first one with her little paws on it with a smile a mile wide.

I owned a Defender back in the early eighties. I swapped it for an externel Hayes 1200 baud modem that was new. If only I had known!

Here are my newest....Guess I'm going to start my own Defender resto thread today. I'm sure you guys have seen millions of these machines. They both work and Defender is in good shape other than a black paint job.
