The next morning I was up early with a phone call to the soon-to-be ex-owner getting directions. "So, uh... How are you gonna pick this up?" I paused for a second. "Well, I was thinking I'd just call AAA." "Do they pick up nonregistered vehicles?" "Well, not technically, but if you're cool with the driver, and hook him up with a good tip...." So, 45 minutes later, our 4x4 ambulance (as I found out when we got there--good thing I liked it) was getting winched onto a flatbed. The driver later told me it was by far the heaviest vehicle he'd ever felt on the back of his truck. And that was without the engine or tranny in it!
