Yeah, this is good Craigslisting.

I have to call on it even though I shouldn’t. $2500 for an SS 454 is cheeeeeeeeap.

So I've been tasked with selling one of these.. 

So I've been tasked with selling one of these.. 

Our company is getting rid of a 2003 Yukon XL and 2004 Pacifica.

They told me to look over the car and try to find a value.

Here’s the base of the ad that I’m working on. I’ll have to add to it as I go of course.

2004 Pacifica

...The Good...

3.5 L V6 with AWD and 122,000 miles

Leather interior, power seats, windows and locks

Moonroof

Rear view camera

Good tires (new in 2008)

6 disc CD changer in...

Not a bad little Camera. The video and sound are better than I expected.

The fish-eye lens doesn’t do much for the still shots but they’re not too bad.

At 1/3 the price of a GoPro I’d say it’s a decent deal!

Any experts on the Tacoma frame rot issue?

Any experts on the Tacoma frame rot issue?

Because I’m going to look at this tomorrow (today?).

Its a 1996 with 112,000 miles, V6, 5 speed and 4x4.

They’re asking $3500.

It seems too good to be true.

Opinions? 1996 K2500 Suburban

(Not the actual truck.. I should be so lucky!)

I have an opportunity to buy a 96 Suburban 2500 4x4 with the ubiquitous Chevy Tree Fiddy power plant for $400.

It’s been used as a truck but well maintained. Many new parts including fuel lines, brake lines, brakes, belts, hoses, and battery. All within the last year if the seller is being honest.

Many dings and a big dent where he jack knived his...

Do NOT spend money on this album. Find it for free somewhere, somehow.

Out of twelve songs only five are memorable and of those five, only three are really good. "Sister Golden Hair" being #1.

I'm torn for the next one.. Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Chicago or Boz Scaggs?

Done Deal! The 200X Comes "Home" Tomorrow.

Done Deal! The 200X Comes "Home" Tomorrow.

I’m giddy like a schoolgirl!

It needs a little restoration work. It’s missing it’s headlight and shroud and could benefit from a new exhaust but for the most part it’s perfect.

I’m going to get in a LOT of trouble on this sucker..

Hmm. I'm liking this way too much.

Drop that tail about 12", dump the wheezy 223 6 cylinder and it’s perfect!

In Colorado of all places.

What is ,“You’re overqualified for that position and you should have known it.”?

Jeez.. It’s a loong story and I’ll spare y’all.

At least I’m only being transferred (for now) and not booted. Time to double down on sending out resumes!

Nooooooooooo!d1!one!

We can’t have a friggin “expansion team” from Florida get the cup.

Bloody hell.. I need a beer!

Snow and no Trike pics? Ha!

The back yard is a bit worse for wear too.

Looks like the weird trail from Family Circus eh?

Sorry. Longish post. No new pics yet.

First, the house has been vacant way longer than I was told. Possibly up to two years.

So I’m battling Bugs. Lots of em. I hate bugs. Hate! The place is going to smell very insecticide for a little while.

Next is finding a cheap Riding Mower. This is proving difficult. Everyone wants $900-$1000 for a beat to hell version of what I can buy new for $1100 at...

No more "Soft Cloth" Car Washes for this old girl.

I knew the bed was shot when I bought it so no big deal. You can't ask too much for $900. It is a bit painful to watch the cancer grow and not be able to do anything about it.

One lube to rule them all!

I love a product that’s named after exactly what it does. And does well!

Typical Craigslister..

So, this truck has popped up on Oppo a few times now. I guess the guy is now parting it out now per the final paragraph in his ad.

I TRIED TO HAVE SOMEONE SAVE THIS TRUCK FOR 6 MONTHS BY OFFERING IT AT A FAIR PRICE. I HAVE GIVEN UP - THIS IS GOING TO BE PARTED OUT AND SCRAPPED. IT’S SAD - I STARTED IT UP AND DROVE IT AROUND THE YARD BEFORE PULLING IT INTO THE GARAGE. I WILL BE SELLING ALL OF...

It’s the best pic I could get as I was fighting off a Black Lab that desperately wanted that window seat.

I’ve seen this thing online before somewhere. It’s covered in Bondo and Primer. And the driver side front wing is gone too.

I like it and hate it all at once.

Odd, that..

Found one of the Jalop neighbors!

Found one of the Jalop neighbors!

I guess this means I need to crawl out of my shell and actually meet them. Dammit.

I’ve been burned by getting to know the neighbors in the past so I’m being cautious this time around.

Bad Idea Time..

Bad Idea Time..

This sweetheart is only $900. A classic from 1984. So damn tempting.

Restoring A Circular Saw?

(Not my pic but same machine)

I recently inherited some fun stuff. Tool Boxes, a .50cal Black Powder rifle, a few Car parts and some Power Tools.

Well, I’m storing some of this stuff in my Dad’s garage until I can (finally? please?) move in to my own garage.

Dad (retired) decided to refurb this thing. It’s a Skil Worm Drive from the 1970s. After replacing the brushes, a new cord and an erl...

This Beer. It took 11 years before Green Line made it to the "sticks". 

And every sip is as good as I remember it being. Lake Michigan, Fecal Greaseballs, Steve Dahl, Eddie and JoBo, the Viagra Triangle, a Mayor out of touch and in denial.

Mmmm! All in one dark bottle!
