Old school factory exhaust and some running gear installed and it looks great! Our guy we have working on it has done an outstanding job of massaging every piece to come out just how we want it.

Nice touch with the Tucker decal inside the vent box just like Rock and Roll, the legend.

I know that it would be ultra-poor form (bordering on WHAT ARE YOU THINKING)...but I'm thinking that you're going to miss those back windows

upon closely inspecting the photos of the restored freighter it makes me realize that mine is def a survivor 743 that is in great shape .I can see some of the same dents to the front pontoon and grouser that I was thinking about getting fixed. so did the pontoons just get repainted ?

Just the cargo in the back that will suffer. Beside I think I see the skylight just like the Legend, Rock and Roll.

Super fine job Sno-Cat.

mr downhill,

thinking you may NOT get a ride in it, and you are just stirring the pot,

if it was good enough for Sir Hillary,he came back from the south pole in the back of Rock-N-Roll, it is good enough for everyone else
