Trust me, I really wanted to. After I messaged him a second time, I went back to Craigslist to take a snapshot of the add but it had been deleted. He was probably getting hammered with messages. It was at a small community just down the road from me so I'm looking on google earth to see if by chance I can find it. I  got my eyes out for it just in case it is being moved. I would like to see it in person just to see what I missed out on.

The ad is probably still in your browser's web page cache. Google how to access it.  I tried finding it on a web cache, but couldn't locate one. Didn't waste much time, though. I did see the ad on a search, as pointed out by a previous post, but it said it was deleted.

Try finding the cache in your own computer. Maybe it's still there. I, too, would like to see the photos.

Hi Craig,
 I looked at it with my iPhone and my iPad. I went in and found all the web pages that I have visited for who knows how long. But I found where I looked at it but it won't let me open any of the web sites when I click on them. Does anyone know how to open them on the iPhone?

Like I said... It was complete except the front GM emblem and the glass. That was all I could tell from the pics. All the tires were up and it looked like it was just rolled out to where it was, maybe under its own power? I sure wish the guy would have called me back and let me know one way or the other. He may have sold it? Or he may have found out what it was? Just wished I could have seen it in person.

Ok this is the only pic we can find. I took this picture of the screen on my wife's computer from my iPad, so it's not the best but you'll get the idea of what it is.

That Liner hasn't been in Alaska,that may be a shot from Swedon,thats the one that got sold to those gents there about 5 or 6 years ago,the back end on that one was damaged in an accident on one of GM's last tours the car hauler Liner we have gave its back end to this one and went to Swedon.
 The one pictured in Yak was what was left over after the NATMUS museum took the parts they needed to finish their restoration,what was left was the cab and it was placed on a different chassis and turned into a car hauler,the YP park bus fits only if I load it from a straight dock onto it but can't be hauled as it almost touches the sides.

Wow! I can only imagine what it would cost to get a windshield custom-made for that thing.

And I won't say my opinion of those who go around with spray cans messing up valuable things...
