Re: [DML] Help!!!! Brought 06859 home today from ebay purchase



Whoah, slow down spinach chin. I live nearby and so does Mike Cohee.

Email me offline. Also, you don't need to pass any dang inspection. 
You can get historic plates like all the rest of us and not be 
bothered with it. Of course, we'll still be fixing your parking brake.
