    HERBIE...arrived safe and sound...actually came in on just a 3 car carrier by an independent...he actually let me unload it then I reloaded a nice 500 MUSTANG for him back on trailer...HERBIE runs very strong and drives pretty good...but is going to need more cosmetic surgery than I had hoped...also showed up with the original NEW ZEALAND title...this should be interesting in the Fremont County Treasurer...they run when they see me coming...."THE ADVENTURE BEGINS"...
