Pretty good haul for $72 bucks . And the scrap yard probably made money too. If you had to go replace all that with new, probably easy 10,000.

Definitely some life left in most of that stuff!

Indeed, I wonder what your comment would be if I brought home the inclosed trailer that some of this stuff was in.

This was a two axle trailer with title in hand and brakes that work. The yard wouldn’t accept it because it contained too much wood.

It was in decent condition, needed only some minor siding work. The fellow nearly begged me to take it for free Because he didn’t have time to unload it.

I hope you bought several lottery tickets with that streak of luck...

As some of you might expect, I rarely get out to the stores to buy anything. This is why.

Makes me wonder how I can get $3000 worth of goods for $72 at one place and $40 worth of goods for $97 at another.
