  2. Re: Bugsy IV - Painting, Cutting, Buffing is done

    Hardtop I’d like to sell. Not something I need in FL. Even in Winter. It will hang from ceiling of my garage in perpetuity. Come complete with a roll around storage cart same as Bugeye Guy sells.

    Re: LBCs, whatcha gonna do?

    Rut I’d offer to help take one off your hands but it’s hard enough convincing Kate that I came with Bugsy and he’s got to stay. A TR-6 would be a nice cruising alternate.
