You must be an old codger, like me.

You should be able to find an abandoned miner's cabin for free outside of Durango.

DR.C: Thanks, I was hoping you would do just that, YOU ROCK!!
What I mean is, body off (DA), drivetrain out, axles off, ect

But I do like the look of your rod, different is good. Have a safe move.
