Its not as nice as the pics show...its rough, its rusty, but at least its slow lol

It has some serious frame rot, its still solid, but probably not for long. It runs way better than it looks tho. It was a tag-along behind an RV all its life. Its shows 220,00 on the clock, but drives like under 100,000. Ive been getting 30+ mpg with it, so its doing what i want it for :)
