How have you been lately? You been driving scouts lately? I hope all is well! The yellow scout is still kicking strong. I need to get an elbow eliminator soon though. My EGTs are pretty high when cruising. Take care!"
I have owned 4 Scouts in my life and I did that before I turned 22. My brother had one when I was younger and that is when I became addicted to Scouts. I got my first diesel when I was 16 and cannot turn back to gassers. My Scouts have never let me down. The first on I got I bought for a dollar and sold a couple of weeks later for $2500, which purchased my second (first diesel) which I modified to run veg oil and sold to help fund college. After a long lonely scoutless year, I bought my third and current school-bus-yellow Diesel Scout which has been a faithful daily driver to and from engineering school. And my forth I bought, restored, and sold to buy a ring for my wife.
My current scout is a beauty. My wife likes it so much she wants to name our first daughter Scout.

Unfortunately I have never been able to make it to an IH show. But I plan on going to the Binder Bee sometime soon.
