Default Whats that saying? "One mans junk.....

is luckly my treasure!

driving home from work i decided to take a side street to aviod some traffic.........i cant help but see a guy is throwing out a huge 8' satalite dish and pole........whats that i see???? it looks liek a hatch ram....IT IS!!! so i pull over inspect a bit more closely....take my tools out and take it off before the garbage truck comes around!! Take it appart sandblast and paint with some of the Merc 500efi Blue and whala!!! I think it may be a 36v motor but when i hook up 12v to it, it has no problems lifting my 200# but!!! Now i need a boat to put it in!! LOL

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
