Eliminators on the Market (March 2018)

Disassembly of various components for winter projects has finally reached the end, and the cleaning, refurbishing and repairs are in full swing. Hope to begin reassembling stuff in the next week or two. Spring is coming…

First time I’ve seen three 69 Boss 302 Eliminators for sale at the same time.

Cougar prices seem on the rise, time to sell.

Yeah, it’s been a bumper year for '69 Boss Cats! Was discussing this over on the Boss 302 forum…
