Thanks for joining @Mike Bolton, so glad to have you on here, and super cool to see the final scout in your pics, and in such great condition! Would love to chat sometime and hear more about your story!Since this facility is up and running, I thought I should join.
I've owned a Scout since 1987, buying a rust-free one in Arizona, and keeping it running and rust-free (by keeping it off the salted roads here in Iowa).
Locating the Last Scout in 1996 was a life-changing event for our family.
Purchasing it, finally, in 2003 had been a goal for a time, but it finally worked out, and it came into my "fleet".
We took it quite a few places, unrestored, from 2004 to 2015, then started a restoration in 2015, with it being completed in 2020.
It would be interesting to play a part in the rollout of the "New Scout", transitioning from TurboDiesel to Electric.
Here they are:
The Last Scout is on the Left, the Green Rallye Scout is Original, made about 6 weeks prior to the Last One.
