Saw one of these in the Chicago Suburb of St. Charles in front of the Arcada Theater on my way home from work tonight, kinda surprised to see it here, normally I would see these running around Branson, MO where George Harrison's sister backs a Beatles tribute show.
Oddly, the one I saw had Illinois plates, and at least at one time, Harrison's Sister was living here in Illinois, so I wonder if she was in town and that was her's.
I've known him for years, he and his brother (also working there), bought stuff for their own r/c's before they were old enough to work and come from a family that has auto repair businesses! At this point, I'm not sure if he is stupid or lazy............ He also said yesterday that you get the work you pay for, I reminded him that if you don't work, you don't get paid!
A coworker, he was told to finish putting a customer's R/C truck back together and run it after we replaced the flywheel and clutches and reinstalled the engine. Apparently he first tried starting it without hooking the fuel line from the tank to the carb, then I had to tell him to run the line from the tuned pipe to the tank (using exhaust as a fuel pump). He starts it again, no throttle response......didn't put the carb linkage on either...........I kinda wanted to shoot him with an airsoft gun at that point..............
I went to the storage area we keep our stuff in to find a couple crawler motors I was missing and found one of them as well as a scraper/squeegie that I thought went to the crusher with my Lebaron in '04.
One thing to keep in mind Harry, The USPS also does some of Fed-UPS shipping for them, especially to small, rural towns like the one Mom grew up in. Fed-UPS wouldn't bother dispatching a truck theredue to costs, but they have their little P.O. right on the main drag to pick up packages up at. With Fed-UPS, my cousin would have to drive 20+min to get packages at a town big enough to "deserve" a store.
