    Cool score. The aluminum is a find. Here the competition is fierce for anything electrrical, metal or motorized. Have seen guys at the local university auction go at it over a medium sized dumspter full of shred steel paying over a $150 bucks for it. I looked at what they bought. At 2.5 cents a pound they would be lucky to get $20 for it all. Made no sense but isn't auction fever great epecially if it's your stuff they are fighting over.
