My only source of income is parting vehicles out and putting trucks together to re-sell. Seems like I could never get ahead in 2002. I kept buying stuff I needed or wanted, but when it came to selling stuff, all my friends wanted the parts (and they didnt have any money) so I did a whole bunch of trading, and trading and more trading. Seemed like the more I traded, the more I lost. I kept trying to give my friends first choice on parts and stuff. Then to top it off, parts that were always in demand before just seemed to lose their value. No one wanted to pay even what I had into stuff so I could break even. So I finally sat down and did the math on every truck I bought and parted out this year, as well as every major part or vehicle I bought and didnt re-sell. The grand total of cash I spent along with the total cash I lost in my dealings added up to just over $18,000. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I didnt even have close to that in cash to begin with. But somehow, It all adds up and I'm out that much money this year. I still owe friends $4,900 of that amount that I borrowed. I think I'm gonna have to be more careful in 2003, or else I'll have to be a jerk and not sell (give) parts to friends and instead sell parts to the first person with cash. Then I'm always the bad guy.
