I know the truck looks better than some trucks that are new from coastal new england.... I don't know how the truck has been sitting, but I am going to call about it Monday morning....

That is definitely a jewel Howard. Im looking forward to hearing more about its history in service...

You don't often see Marmon Herrington's popping up and especially in that kind of a condition...

Well I contacted the Roads supervisor and got a polite "it ain't for sale" Next step is the County Comissioners...

Well his answer makes sense after a little thought. The Roads supervisor has no authority to sell anything (or buy anything for that matter) without Commissioner approval... It sure is easier to say its not for sale than to have to attend a commissioner meeting and ask to sell it and then go through a bid process. Just easier to let it sit....
I will fire off a friendly request to the board of commissioners... they hopefully will see the sense in selling? (well at least it makes sense to me)

Its obviously worth more to me and you fellows than it is to put into full time service.... What do you fellas/gals think its worth????
