    I've been trying to sell my '78 K5 for $200, right? I've been thinking about crushing it, but I wanted to see if someone would buy it first so I would have to crush some classic GM metal. It's rusty, it has no motor, tranny, or front seats....

    And I get people hassling me over all sorts of stupid ****. It's a freakin $200 truck!!! What are they expecting, a Lexus inside?

    Hell that's worth it just for the extra parts. Wish I could right now but that's just not in the cards. One of these days I will clutter my yard I swear........

    You could get at least half of your asking price just taking it across the scales....
    On second thought, what Kansas needs is another non running vehicle in someone's yard:doah: :haha: :haha: :haha:

    Funny, I went through the same thing recently. I put an ad up on craigslist to get rid of my girlfriends old beater, a 92 Beretta. I advertised it at $300 and had people emailing asking me all sorts of things like if the ac was cold, whether or not the stereo worked, etc. I told them it's $300, what do you think? hehe.

    A young guy and his mom ended up buying it. He said it's his first car. Kinda felt bad for the kid, pawning this hunk o' crap off on him so I let him have it for $200 and I fixed the alternator and got it running. Hadn't started it in 4 months, thing sounded like a dirtbike when I first started it up after putting the new alt in :haha:

    I know how you feel. I recently sold an 82' 3/4 ton gmc with a 465/208, no motor, no title,10b/14b. I had it list in the classifids under parts and accs. for $350 and I must have got 50 phone calls asking if it runs, can they drive it home etc. One woman called and after I told her no title and no motor she got pissed, "O, thats nice!" and hung up on me! What are people thinking? First off its in the "Parts and Acc." listing and second its $350 OBO! I ended up selling it to a guy 2 miles down the road for $250, which was fine as I still made money. Some poeple! [rant over,thanks for listening!] J

    Wont your insurance give you a deal on a non daily driver? I tell my insurance company that I only drive my Blazer a couple weekends a year for camping and it cost hardly anything. Of course that's a lie since it's been about 3 years since it drove on a public road:doah:
