Re: Clunker Tragedy
Like I said, buddy. The cost will take too dang long to justify a move. I sink money into my truck, so I can have it forever. Now if the engine blows or I become rich, now that's a whole nother ball game......

However if you live in MN. and the salt gets to the metal of your vehicle, well then it becomes to cost worthy, time to buy new.

Re: Clunker Tragedy
Very much agree. I picked up an old Honda ex 350 generator the other day that " wasn't working". All that was wrong with it was the carb wasn't adjusted properly. I later looked on ebay to find people buying them for hundreds of dollars and that they originally sold for 800 bucks. The only cost I paid for the generator was the gas and two stroke oil I put in it. Its only about the size of a lunchbox and it can run plenty of work lights and stuff. Amazing....the guy was gonna throw the thing out too. Fixed my neighbours lawnmower she was going to chuck...all it needed was fresh gas, the blade didn't even need to be sharpened! Pretty crazy what people throw out. When I lived in Yellowknife there were tons of dump scavengers, Vince might know of this too considering he lived there for a while. Those guys are great they salvage and repair all kinds of stuff. There is a guy who writes a column in the Yellowknife NWT newspaper called "tales from the dump" and its all about the goings-on there. If i find an old Yellowknife newspaper I'll scan it and show you.
