She is a beauty all right. Also, on the 1FSJ forum there is a 1986(?) GW with only 300 original miles on it for sale. I didnt get the story on it but it sounds like it could be purchased for $15 grand. Here is the link. http://wagoneers.com/FSJ/rigs/86-GW-300miles/. Not sure if its a joke or not but it is a nice rig.

This web site, www.grandwagoneer.com (http://www.grandwagoneer.com) has been upthere for a while. He's auctioning it off. Say's that he has invested $10,000 into it, so I expect he wants atleast 8 or 9 grand. Still a lot cheaper thant www.wagonmasters.com. (http://www.wagonmasters.com.)
I would bet that this GW is in better shape than any of the ones from www.wagonmasters.com. (http://www.wagonmasters.com.)

I have spoken to this guy on the phone, his name is Norb and he seems to make a side business selling GWs here in Los Angeles.
4 months ago when I was shopping for a GW I noticed that over the course of a few weeks there were 3 ads in the Los Angeles Recycler (http://www.recycler.com) for expensive GWs ($12K for a '91, $11K for a '90 and 10K for a '89). All the ads had the same guys voice saying to leave a message. Each GW for sale was black w/ Maroon interior. He did not give his name in the outgoing message. After calling a few times (these are asking prices after all) and not hearing back from him I noticed the # of the oldest ad had been disconnected. A week later another of the #s had been disconnected. I figure these are voicemail boxes, once he sells it he drops the voicemailbox. 2 weeks later he leaves me a message saying if I'm still looking he's showing it tommorrow. I call 3 times and he calls back a week later (after I'd found a '91 for almost half of his asking price - but, have had to do a lot of upkeep on it). The story was he had to go out-of-town for a family emergency. I talked w/Norb for 20 minutes b/c he'd wasted so much of my time I figured I was entitled. He said he was from Oregeon and had been the GW repair tech at a dealership. He also said the new paint job on his GW for sale had had all the clearcoat removed in the prep, if that's not done the new paint will crack. He said the factory Black and White paint jobs were the most resistant to clear coat cracking. I ask if he wants to work on my GW, he says no.
2 weeks later (early April) I see an ad on Ebay and follow a link to grandwagoneer.com and see the lush GW for sale. Another primo black/maroon one. The ebay ad said this one had a rebuilt engine w/7 yr./70,000 mile warrany. It says all mechanical engine components are new have 4,000 miles on them and that the warrantee is transferrable to the new owner. The mileage I think was listed not in the ebay ad and not on the GW.com website. Via email He said it was 124K and answers my question that the rebuild warranty is from a shop in Oregeon and that upon reading the fine print he learned the warranty is NOT transferrable.
Anyone in Los Angeles would have a hard time collecting on that warrenty in Oregeon even if it were transferrable!
My guess is that this site is up for his ebay ads, and, that he has a stock of GWs for sale.
Norb, if you're out there reading this you'd be a great source of info for us! http://www.cs.colostate.edu/~zeimet/ubb/smile.gif
What's the scoop? Is this a side line business?
