    From what I gather, he had to sell a fair few wheelie's to fund the production for the powerglide. So until that happens then no powerglide.

    Last I heard Powerglide was finished and sitting at the factory, but the guy needs a big chunk of cash to get them shipped, and he had some unforeseen medical expenses come up.

    That must be a hell of a shipping bill. Maybe it was a production bill as well, I don't know. The sad part is they're gathering dust somewhere, all ready to go.

    From what I heard, it was his father getting sick or something like that.

    So I'm not sure it's entirely about the funding, but rather, also the devoting of time to deal with orders and such.

    He's selling stuff on iOffer every day so I doubt it's a matter of having enough time.

    This is correct, and I have not heard from him in over a month and we used to speak every other weekend.
