Try this link for the New Smyrna Beach DC-7. I just found it in a Google Search and it appears to be the airplane in question.

I watched that shipping wars, they used gas power abrasive cut off saws to cut many of the parts off to make it so it would fit on the truck. Really a messed up way to move an airplane.

So then all that work on that restored DC-7 just to let it again sit and rot, that's horrible. I think insurance companies should have a lottery to see which one would insure it for free and write it off as advertisement. I guess the owners just didn't try hard enough, fuel and all that could be advertisement for some outfit.
