I saw that, but Joey's got a shell that he's caging in the near future, that'll be available for sale. First order of business is verifying current cage material, which I'm doing this week. Dependent on that, I may look into seeing if I can get the thing straightened(if cost effective). Otherwise it will make far more sense to go with a new shell/cage. Whether the mini sells, dictates my budget.
Many variables at the moment.

Then you should visit Joeys shop. He's run one for the last two events. He looked like the swamp thing at Philo with all the rain and leaves. Based on my recent experience, I'll be much happier with a body to surround a cage. :mrgreen:

While the car is trashed, the good news is my back feels better than it ever has before. I think being upside down, put traction on my back or something. Car still runs. Hoping to transfer the running gear to a new shell/cage that Joey will build....just need to get some cash together

You need to get an inversion table, then you can be upside down anytime! Bill and I bought one a few months ago, and it's amazing.

Well, I pulled the car out of the "shed". Snapped a winch cable in the process. It's now in the driveway. Just need to pull Erik's trailer out of snowbank and load it up and head to Joey's. We'll see what Joey and James can cook up for me.

Ross is now with Joey and James. They said they'd do their best to hammer stuff out. We'll see what they come up with.
