Thought it would be an easy day for me piloting Ralph (the Suzuki that could…….) to Brooksville to pick up a refurbished Honda EV-6010 from Pinellas and a fresh tranny from Monster…..new sAC compressor and good tunes I figured it was time for some driving fun.
Didn’t work out that way! The AC was “Luke cool” is you know that guy then while holding back the sweat in traffic getting a call I find the Airstrwm motorhome we picked up has title issues………
Folks have asked why we feel we can help people wanting a vintage coach is the paperwork. You want to be sure it truly belongs to YOU before sinking bucks into it.. One reason it’s the best idea to go thru a title service like we do. This is a trap you must be careful of…..here’s what is happening:
so this is the coach in question. The repair center went through the hoops of having a title company “mechanics lean” the coach getting the title to cover unpaid repair invoices. They supposedly did it right, contracting a title service to do the paperwork like we do. The title company dis not verify the VIN number as they were bonded to do and the title we have is for an Airstream trailer!
This paperwork was not done right by a bonded title agent……they did not come and look at the coach…..their responsibility but now I have a fraudulent title!
Yes, there are remedies but more paperwork will need to be done before this coach can come back alive. Do a totally private sale and your recourse on something like this is difficult. MY bonded title guy will not begin the paperwork until he actually sees the coach and by picture verifies the VIN #. I can fix this and you betcha I’ll turn in that other title company to the state but really THIS is one of the best reasons, especially on old machines where owners have passed away, etc…….. You don’t want to have to deal with this.
So now we have a refundable deposit on the coach where I must jump thru hoops to get this proper title so a drive out tag and insurance can be turned on. See, if YOU had gotten in this situation…..the hassles will begin! So I called my guy and got things started.
Got that all on the cell phone while driving! Then the phone calls begin……. Having a mobile phone is really useful but sometimes a curse!
My charger could keep up with the gigs I was blowing our answering all kinds of question, 2 guys on the road having problems driving home their “new to them” GMC…… A machine shop put in the wrong pickup tube and screwed up the crank in a fresh motor on break in……..(you must use a deep sump bolt on oil pickup on a high pressure pump). 3 different guys wanting the Airstream motorhome I just told you has title problems ……grrrrrr.
I get to Monster Transmissions to find out their into rally was modified to be an invitation only unveiling of their new compound and business plan……..ok but if you didn’t want the party droid …only the hi rollers to rub shoulders with the hot rod elite………the invited me? Well, I’ll do videos, they’re gonna have fun weather they like it or not! Don’t plan to come, I’ll do a video for ya. Here are a few pics of the 65 acre place right now That’s their torque converter gurus grandson Kelsey there on the left……..these custom transmission we’ve helped them design and offer comm out the back door, loaded by hand!i heard Ralph (my Suzuki) say as I headed to the driver seat……..” I hate you”. Didn’t have the heart to tell him what was next. I have a smooth ride lumped down with the tranny over to Pinellas Power Products to pick up a refurbished Honda EV-6010 generator. As always , Paul runs the generator on his test stand always be for he delivers it in front of you! I like that……..and here is the freshly refurbished water cooled Honda running on the stand….. …outside………(proper safety) humming along ready to take its seat in this restorationp project Ralph huffed and sputtered it way (have a heart……493,000 miles on the McKrudgen) Luke cool AC and all thru no cell service rural Floida trying to catch return calls on tops of hills….check out this place I’ve always wanted to stop in the big city of Mascot:cHeck out this crazy Indian Taxi I thinkso I certainly couldn’t stop THIS time with my phone battery sucking bad and the shop blowing up! Hit traffic again……..Orlando……but there are my 2 passengers home safe getting ready to take their placeshey, I tried to get a foot shot of El but i guts she was more interested in that bone treat!
So the day is about to let loose, sorry but I have a pile of messages to call…..thanks for your interest……..lemme get to ya……. The guts are here pulling out the car trailer to go out and pick up something……..Hmmmmm, don’t know what this IS! Lets see tomorrow……..see ya then
