    I would love to see $140.00 for my cars.I have been hearing the place i sell to thats 30 miles away is going to close. If that happens i will have to go over 70 miles. That doesent sound far but my truck is screaming at 55 and with the hills it takes close to 2 hours to get there but if the price went way up i would scrap some of my trucks and get one thats not as old as i am.I can always dream or i can get by with my stuff sell it all and stop working so many hours.

    I have various crane hulks and other heavy chunks laying around the yard . All the light stuff that accumulates i just send out and get nothing for ,just to keep things in order. Hopefully the heavy stuff will bring a buck someday,its the best i have for a pension plan.
