Well, I am selling my 1961 Scout, which will not make my wife sad (she's been a good sport, really.... but she won't be sad to see it go). I should get all the money I paid out of it. I sold a nice Hammond B-3/Leslie 122 combo and my 1964 Fender Jazz Bass to get it.
I am selling it on eBay. So far, the auction is going well.
So that made me apply the phrase "catch and release" to my hobbies. Hopefully the stuff I am into at any given moment holds its value.
So what's next? You guessed it... banjos and banjo building tools. I want to take up woodworking. And I could use another banjo, or 2.
Kathy might start having fond memories of the Scout...

Hey Steve - what happened! I thought you loved the Scout.

You know what they say, Mom. If you love something.... let it go. :-)
Just kidding. We just don't use it that much, and I want to buy some equipment to start a woodworking shop (like Doc's). I was going to call Bob for some advice on tools.

Sounds like a great plan! Bob would love to help you. I'm glad you had your fun with the Scout - I know what it meant to you and for that I'm sorry that you had to ....let it go!

Steve, I gave away my 68 scout plow truck. A heavy spring snow finally broke the rotted frame. Years before I built a ply wood cab cause the origional melted. It still ran like a top the day it left!

The original lit says 20 mpg. I've never really tested it. The fuel thing that bugs me about this vehicle is the amount of time it takes to fill. Today's modern gas pumps go WAY FASTER than the pumps of yesteryear. So if you go full speed with a contemporary pump, it overflows. I've got a few stations locally with slow pumps, and I've used those.
