I came upon a trailer that was destined to be crushed that had three good L-66 locks. Being a person that is always looking for ways to raise funds for my 56 restoration, I took a few minutes to remove them. I'm happy to say they will buy the new water heater and then some. :-)

The best so far was a free, 58 Overlander

Three weeks ago at a moving/garage sale I came upon a Taylor 142 commercial soft serve machine. I asked how much? and he said It's yours if you take it. It weighed 130 pounds, but I took it. I ran two small trial batches and it works perfectly. We are taking this weekend to our Thanksgiving rally. Lots of our people like Dairy Queen and we can customize the flavors to make it even better. I made a board, so I can get it in my truck by myself and I can serve dessert right from my tailgate at the rallies next summer. E-bay has the exact same machine listed for $1,999 plus shipping.

Back in the day when I lived in the Adirondacks and dumps were dumps and not sanitary landfills my wife eventually banned me from dump runs because I would come back with more than I left with.

The dumps also were a recreational resource for shooting and bear feeding.

By the way I have a Carefree and A&E awning for free if anyone wants to pick them up.

I used to live in Colma, California. That is where there are more dead people than living. I practically landscaped my whole yard from one cemetery's garbage dump. Once I found a tall can of bud in there, wiped it off and had a pause that was mildly refreshing.

Most recently at my school, I saved from the garbage a bunch of cupboards and Eric (bf) screwed them all together, found a door at the dump, and viola, it sure makes the side of the house look better!

Smiles,
Pink

Murray would like to trade our Philippe Starck Bubble Club sofa for your soft serve gizmo. Gemma would consider it if the soft serve machine came equipped with a pair of Manolo's!

Um, which rallies will you be attending?

We took our "Soft Serve" machine to our rally this weekend. It was a great hit with the younger members for the giant cones they made. Other members used it to make their dessert pies a la mode. It was pretty heavy moving out of the truck and into the building but well worth the effort.

This last week while on a parts hunt I came across a 67 Overlander that was in terrible shape. The owner was going to hire someone to haul it to the local wrecking yard. I asked if I could have it and she handed me the title and thanked me for taking it .
I didn't need it, but I had to save it.
P.S. ...There isn't one window on the Overlander

I friend asked me to help clean out a house he was renting. The renter just up and left. There was no cleaning involved just moving great stuff into my truck. I got about $1500 worth of pvc plumbing fittings, (which I've used and charged full price for), a 5000 watt generator, power plumbing snake, tiller I sold for 250, the list goes on and on. I'm just now getting around to fixing the generator, It should just need gas and All of that. I heard you can do a propane/lp? conversion. Does anyone know if that will quite the engine? I'm not really sure of the difference between LP and propane either.

I once also got a bunch of free granite counter tops from a company that was moving. $$$$ were made from that. I also bought a scooter for $50, the guy thought it needed alot of work, I got home, found a tube that had came detached, pushed it back on, and it was good as new. I've lucked out over the years. I just found a bmx bike that was $500 new 5 years ago, and it still looks new. Of course styles have changed and kids riding bmx today think it's crap. I'll just wait till their new aged bikes fall apart.

I feel like there was a lot more.
I've passed on a lot of deals/freebees as well.
easy come, easy go

wow, when I posted that^ the AS photos came up.
Good deal!!

Any idea how the front end came to have those dents? I guess it was dropped? My 74 has that on something on the back driver side that kind of looks like that.

I wonder what an AS is worth in scrap? I had mine insured while I was waiting to pick it up, They laughed when I said I wanted a $1000 deductible, they didn't think it was worth that. I laughed back, and dropped them when I got it home. Anyone found a place that does stated value insurance? I doubt I will cover it, except for health mishaps.
