    It doesn't get out enough.
    A rig like this should be taken out and enjoyed.
    Needs a good home...

    Ed, your Phoenix is an awesome beauty. I can't tell you how much I'm considering it. Does the 80 go and the Pinz come in? I need to take a trip to Tucson. Can you get between front and rear seats?
