thank you sir.this truck has quite a story and maybe once i actually have my hands on it,i may share some of that.you can count on some pictures.i have a thread started in the alternative tinkerings or whatever it's called,with some info on a 1939 Chrysler i'm building.no doubt there will be one on this truck too once it's here and we see what direction we go with it.it's going to be a survivor truck if it's good enough,and i think it is.we'll see??
take care.

Thanks for the info. Did you ever think in your lifetime that you wouldn't be to cross from one Province to another whenever you wanted to. Unbeliable what this Covid thing is doing.

Hi,it sure is an aggrevation but it'll work out i'm sure and in the big scheme of things,this is not the end of the world,folks deal with cancer and all kinds of things that would make dragging an old truck home,look like a piece of cake,even with a few bumps in the road?sure it's annoying and you're right,who would've ever thought that in a place where you are free to come and go,do as you please,you'd be told to stay home?but that's where we're at.i figure things could always be worse,that truck will make it home,a 100 years from now,we'll look back and laugh?

yes sir,can't wait to see it.it's hard to believe the way time flies,i first heard about this truck nearly a year ago.i wanted it but i thought it was out of reach.one thing lead to another,the guy i bought it from was too busy to advertize it so it sat some more,everytime i checked on it,he still had it,so eventually i made an offer on it,with covid going on and it was mine.here we are now with it sitting at the border on the U.S side,5 hours from home.hurry up and wait.it'll come together,i have no doubt.take care.Greg

I like this. I have finally accepted that I will continue to buy and hold, like you're supposed to do with stocks. There's more to this mindset than meets the eye, and I don't have to justify it to anybody.

If you aren't too far from the province to province border, I wonder if you can go there and find out if they will pass the vehicle through by itself. Then all you need to do is find a forum member to pick it up from the broker and drive it across New Brunswick and hand it off. A long shot maybe, but not unheard of. Especially if you have some parts they need ;)

hi,thanks.this little village i live in,Joggins,Nova Scotia is about 35 minutes or so from the New Brunswick border,then it's another 4 1/2 or 5 hours,give or take across New Brunswick to Calais at the Maine/New Brunswick border,where my truck is.it won't last long,maybe another week or 2 but right now, i can't get into NB,that border is closed and even though you can fire a rock across the bridge from Canada to the US,it might as well be a 1000 miles across that bridge.someone has to present the truck to US customs so they can verify the VIN before it leaves,then present all the paperwork to Canada customs.the broker doing my paperwork says they use a tow truck guy right there on the NB side,to go over,get the vehicle,stop at US,then Canada customs,then once on the CDN side,if i'm there.i get the truck,head for home.with everything shutdown,i can't get through NB ,and if i could,i can't get into the US,and the other side of the coin, someone from the US can't get to Canada.only essential travel is allowed,truckers,front line workers,people who live in NB and work in Maine,or live in Maine,work in NB can get back and forth but that's it.Calais,Maine and St Stephen,NB,the 2 little towns right there at the border have a deal in place for about 100 years where both fire services respond to fire,regardless of what side of the line,the fire may be at.i think there was something on the news a while ago,where the border folks were giving fire fighters going back and forth,a hard time??it shouldn't be so hard to get something done but right now,it seems to be with covid.my plan isn't all that difficult,if NB was open?it'll work out.i'm retired now but spent 35 years trucking and the last few years working for CAA,the Canadian version of AAA so i have lots of connections to the trucking and tow truck business.i let some folks know,if they had space or an empty truck near Calais,i'd pay for the space and get my truck here or closer?we'll get'er done.can't wait.

Thanks for the update, Greg! I had been wondering.... Must feel a bit like a kid waiting for Christmas, seems to take forever to get here.

What an adventure. Just think, it's part of the story you can tell about the truck going forward.

Hi Mike.just like Christmas, maybe worse cause at least you knew when Christmas was??.I have no idea when I'll finally get my hands on this truck,but nobody is sick,there's lots to eat and a big new shop to play in.if all I got from covid was a delay getting my truck home, I guess I'm lucky,lots of folks didn't fare so well. A 100 years from now,we'll look back at this and laugh.

Hi Dan.it has been an adventure hasn't it and you,ve been along for the ride for a while now?I think when you get the drive shaft back in your truck,you should take a run to the border in your beautiful truck to check on mine?you're closer to it than I am,ha-ha.i was thinking yesterday while I was out in the shop working on the 67 wagon,it was over a year that i first heard about this truck of mine,probably about 8 months since I paid for it and was prepared to leave it Utah til I could go get it but everythinged when the guy I bought it from,wanted it gone,so now we're tied up with the truck at the border and I can't get to it?this truck already has a bit of a story and so it grows.it'll all work out. All the best.Greg
