    I love old chit and it's tough scrapping some of that stuff but a man got to choose between having a acreage of cool stuff that doesn't really sell that well or pay the bills. When we are all rich and not so famous, we can open a museum.

    I recently rolled outta bed and not functioning to well...is that a Bronco or a Scout?

    And seeing the old Chev makes me hurt inside. Seriously nobody had interest in that truck for a little more than scrap value?

    You did what you gotta do. That's how you earn your living. Don't sweat it.

    Last Fridays haul, got a call my man at the appliance shack and got full load of frigs, washers, dryers, stoves, 5 window acs and a tv I have no idea what I'm going to do with.


    That's stacked 3 wide 2 tall front to back with 5080 # of appliances.

    How, out of curiosity and I feel like a idiot for asking...how exactly did you connect that tow bar to the truck? I thought the tow bar was supposed to have brackets welded or bolted to the frame for the bar to connect with pins. There it looks flush to the bumper with chains strapping it down.

    The reason I never went the route of tow bar is I always thought you had to bolt brackets to the frame...
