    Just saw this on facebook and I thought someone could use this as inspiration in building something similar.

      It looks like it’s pretty well engineered. Even looks like one of those soda-acid fire extinguishers on the running board.

              Could be a Cadillac from the early teens. It's a Holmes 485 wrecker that was designed to be used with large modified autos. It was common to take a large old car cut it down and add the Holmes boom.

                  Has anyone heard from Chester? I emailed him twice in the last four months and he never responded. I'm not sure if he's completely out of the hobby or just working his butt off or down south with one of his kids.

                    Yes... where is Chester. I know he had some traumatic family issues. Hope he is OK.
