Even more fun if you know Spanish.

Is that truck LHR or RHD?

I've seen it once but can't recall.

I'm thinking it's LHD.
Diesel powered engines and parabolic leaf springs. These are a few of my favorite things.

LHD. It's a good thing nobody knows Spanish around here.

But if that's the case, then what is Pico de Gallo?

I believe (hopefully) that the restaurants translate it as "rooster beak" but it literally translates "tip of the cock".

BTW, John is a big fan of pico de gallo...

I'll stick with chicken fingers.

But seriously, Harold, do you remember what you did for this guy's truck? Is it likely something that would be worth even considering?

It came into my shop with a broken rear halfshaft and a weak fuel pump.

While here, it got a list of other things:

Rebuilt swivel housings
Upgrade brake system to dual-circuit, power-boosted brakes
All new brake hydraulics (master, wheel cylinders, lines, hoses, booster)
Electric fuel pump
New gauges (oil, water, tach)
Modern fuse/relay block
Full custom rewire of entire vehicle, using standard British wire color-coding scheme (no "Scooter wire")
Numerous other small things I'm not remembering...

The only real mistake I made was telling him how to find touch-up paint, which he has since sprayed liberally over EVERYTHING.

It's a Texas truck, so it's almost nonexistent.

That's a lot of solid work. If he would end up selling, what kind of price do you think would be reasonable?
