Good day, I thought I would share this project with you. After loosing the possible purchase of another special vehicle I re connected with Mike Calnan and arranged t go visit him for a reconnaissance visit ad confirmation of a possible deal. A week later, armed with a wedge of cash and equipped with a rental trailer and a rental small excavator and a willing accomplice we arrived for the recovery. The CL70 is made up of a front and rear car and were stored on the ground separated. With some gentle persuasion a pair was dragged out of the tall grass storage. Mike also generously allowed us t remove a second front car for parts as neither was complete and it will be easier to compare the two side by side and do the work in the warm and dry.. The excavator proved to be the perfect tool for the job and blended subtlety and power a deft control all in one. As we had an extra piece, we made a mad dash to a local shop to put the first piece on the back of the truck deck so we would still hae enough space to get everything home in one trip. Back at Mike's place we loaded the other two pieces and the spare chassis frame.
