Medicmike63 is starting off with a positive reputation.

One of the farms I do work for traded it to me for some work. No cash was involved............Gotta love trading! Sleeping is not a problem!

Don't be a Hater!

You won't believe what I picked up today.............I traded a good running 360 FE for a 428 cj..................Stright across! Last year I had a guy give me a 75 F-250 "Hi-Boy" for free. The 428 will be going into it, and I'm gonna put this sweet 67 sheetmetal on it.

This is the Hi-boy chassis:

I keep having people give me stuff all the time! Probably helps that I have 3,000 acres to store it all................

I don`t have quite the 3,000 acres, only 640 acres.
No matter as it seems that most around here don`t give away anything away...
I can`t complain though as I still manage to get into way too much old Ford stuff just the same.

Have you dropped the price on that Ranger yet, Don.......I mean with all these free-bee's you dont need an extra truck cluttering up the 3,000 acres!.

I'd let it go for $2,000. I've got several highschool kids here that want it, but I don't want to sell it to one of them, I know they would just tear it up. It's in to nice of shape to let that happen.................And I still have lots of room!

Good move, I hate seeing my old rigs torn up and abused by some kid 6 months after I sell it in perfect condition!.
