AW C'MON

Post by RANGER »

Notice that some have a sizeable list of MV's after their name, many are junk amd beyond restoring or recovery of parts. In some communities a "junkyard" licence is required if the vehicles are not registered and operable.

Ranger I take offense to that. My Mom calls our hose a junk yard due to one frame sitting outside and an mv under a canopy. Not to mention 2 in our 3 car garage.

The Pump Car can be classed as an exercise machine. One has to be creative these days.

Mine may resemble that remark from an angle or two, but thank goodness for acreage and 'non-incorporated areas' :D

I was alluding that some collectors may be trying to come up with an impressive list when in reality the trucks are junkers beyond restoring, it would be interesting to see photos of the trucks. I have an old open cab out in the woods and could list that as a truck, but it would not be representative of anything.

Nothing that I have is beyond, but some are closer to the horizon than the others... :D
