I don't know anything else about the auction other than what's posted on the auction web site. There's a lot of other Ford trucks and other makes of cars, trucks and parts. I wish I could go and buy something but I blew my money last week.
1) Go to the auction anyway
2) Buy both trucks because it's just money and you can't take it with you
3) Try to find a resonable explanation to tell the wife (you WILL fail at this step)
4) WHEN YOU GET HOME will the trucks to me
5) After the wife kills you, I will build the tucks in your honor like a shrine to Bob.
This way, your wife relieves her frustration, collects some life insurance money, I get two pretty decent trucks, and you get an ode to Bob for being the kind, giving soul that you are!!!
You're such a thoughtful person. Only problem I see, well two problems, I don't have the money and it's a 5 hour one way drive. The rest of your plan would probably work. One step I'd guarantee is my wife killing me. I got some heat for the Buick I bought last week. I'm sure there's more to come for that when I don't get the money out of it that I hope to.
Normally with my luck a sale like this would be two miles from my house and I'd still have no money. Just close enough to tease me.
Once you bought that COE you could load your ol Buick up on it and come out west to the land of milk and honey. Any one of us would take you in, heck it might give my ol' lady something else to moan about and she'd get off my rear....lol
You guys really do care! All these offers for a new home are really heart warming I don't what to say. I could easily move anywhere I could have more than three months of not freezing my behind off and a longer driving season but the only problem is after the divorce I won't have anything to drive and if I did I'd probably wouldn't have money to put gas in them.
BTW, last night when I got home it was around 40°, I had to put on a heavy jacket. Global warming my a$$, I'm throwing a dozen tires soaked with oil on the bonfire.
